Vail Systems announced today that FreeClimb is certified as a Level 1 Service Provider under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
FreeClimb, a leading cloud communications API, enables organizations to build compelling payment and healthcare-related communications solutions while ensuring full PCI DSS and HIPAA compliance.
PCI DSS compliance certification is recognized as the global security standard in the payment card industry. The information security standard was launched in September 2006 by PCI data security council to mitigate the risk of fraud by protecting cardholder sensitive data.
HIPAA establishes a set of national standards to safeguard the security and privacy of health information. HIPAA compliance requires policies and procedures to protect sensitive data; organizational knowledge about HIPAA; relevant internal training; a culture of security and compliance; and related documentation.
Attaining PCI DSS and HIPAA compliance for FreeClimb demonstrates Vail Systems’ continuing commitment to strengthen customer trust and further its dedication to privacy and security.
“We’ve always prioritized our clients’ privacy and security, and we are keenly aware of how critical it is to adapt and stay ahead of evolving threats,” said Jim Whiteley, CEO & Founder of Vail Systems. “PCI and HIPAA compliance represent an important step as we continue pushing ourselves to meet the highest standards in the industry.”
As the threats of identity theft, credit card fraud, and attacks involving protected health information continue to intensify, the need for businesses to invest in security has never been greater. With PCI DSS and HIPAA certification, FreeClimb is uniquely positioned to offer software developers the platform they can trust to build a broad range of secure, compliant communications solutions.
