What is PCI Compliance?

In order to legally store their customer’s credit & debit cards payment data, all e-commerce businesses are required to have the PCI Compliance (Payment Card Industry Compliance), or the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

When a company decides to go for the PCI Compliance certification, they must fulfil, in a demonstrable way, some key aspects of their platform. These aspects usually address the security of the platform that hosts the web application and where economic transactions with clients’ private data take place.

To get the PCI Compliance certification, companies usually choose to work with license-based third-party tools that have associated additional costs. These tools aren’t the best choice when working on AWS environments, so we developed and implemented a solution that covers all the required and relevant aspects of a PCI audit.
