Centershift Inc., a provider of self-storage management software, has successfully achieved Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) certification. PCI-DSS certification indicates independent security auditors have affirmed that clients using the Centershift’s software can process credit-card payments and information securely.
“Our PCI compliance provides our clients with the assurance that we take our overall security and protection of our clients' tenants' credit card information very seriously,” said Terry Bagley, president and CEO of Centershift. “We have made significant investments in compliance, hardware and software solutions to meet the rigorous standards of PCI compliance."
The PCI standard is the result of a collaborative effort of the PCI Security Standards Council, whose members include American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa International. The council developed the standard as an efficient approach to safeguarding sensitive data, including customers’ credit card, account and transaction data, and for the prevention of credit card fraud, hacking and various other security concerns. PA DSS was developed for companies that do not store cardholder data but are connected to the Internet.
Based in Salt Lake City, Centershift provides Internet-based rental-management and point-of-sale software solutions for the self-storage industry. Its clients include real estate investment trusts and ownership/management organizations of all sizes. The company’s Store Enterprise and Advantage applications were designed for integration with websites, call centers, web aggregators, iPhones, centralized mail services, corporate offices and other business systems.
