PA-DSS Compliance

Payment Application Data Security Standard: Ensures Security of Cardholder Data

Purple Credit Card Data Protection Icon

The Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) is a subset of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), which applies to software developers and integrators of payment applications that store, process, or transmit cardholder data as part of authorization and settlement.

In order to ensure that all sensitive cardholder data is secure, PCI requires merchants, banks, and all other parties that decide to use a third-party application to select one that meets the PA-DSS standard. 

By not meeting this standard, organizations run the risk of fines of $500,000 per incident, as well as public disclosure of breaches.

  • Organizations can customize their security to adequately protect specific records.

  • Both platforms manage encryption at the field level, and administrative access to information is limited and secured for PA-DSS compliance.

  • Large volume transmissions are protected, combining the benefits of gigabit-speed throughput with low latency.
