UNPay Attains Global Standard, PCI DSS Certification

Singapore, SINGAPORE

China, Singapore, July 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merchants of UNPay can now transact via UNPAY with peace of mind. The global one-stop payment platform announced that it had attained the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Version 3.2 (PCI DSS) validation on 20 June, having successfully passed its compliance assessment. The PCI DSS is the global standard for safety of card data worldwide, currently the world’s most stringent financial data security standard.

PCI DSS was developed by founding members of the PCI Security Standards Committee that comprises American Express, Discover, JCB International, Mastercard and Visa Inc. It is regarded as the authoritative specification in the industry. Version 3.2 is currently the most updated edition of the PCI DSS certification.

To attain the certification, companies must go through multiple, intensive penetration testing and vulnerability scanning on their internal and external networks, audits on policies and procedures, preventive and corrective mechanisms as well as security tests on data encryption.  Only enterprises that comply with the stringent requirements will pass the gruelling tests. To ensure that enterprises that keep up with the standard, they must also go through the vulnerability scanning of the system every three months, submit reports, and accept revalidation audits every year.

Zhang Zhenghua, Founder and CEO of UNPay expressed, “We understand the importance of the trust placed by merchants and consumers whenever they transact through us. As a global one-stop innovation payment platform, UNPay has established a robust payment system architecture for merchants around the world.”

“Being awarded with the PCI DSS certification is an affirmation that UNPay’s information security system has achieved international standards and can provide customers with security and reliability. As cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated, we are committed to taking stringent measures in ensuring our card data is safe from cyber-theft and fraudulent use,” added Zhenghua.
