Quaife: Leading the Way as a PCI Level 1 Gateway on Version 4 Certification

We’re excited to announce a significant milestone for Quaife: We are now one of the first PCI Level 1 gateways on the latest Version 4 of PCI certification. This recognition highlights our unwavering dedication to security, reliability, and excellence in the realm of online payments. 

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has been a stalwart benchmark in the industry since its inception in 2004. Its introduction marked a significant shift in cybersecurity standards, emphasising a prescriptive approach to protecting cardholder data. As the cybersecurity landscape evolves, so must the standards that safeguard sensitive information. 

Before the release of version 4, the most recent update to the PCI DSS came in 2018, reflecting the changing realities of the digital world. We are naturally delighted therefore to be involved and leading the way in this next iteration which other organisations will be adopting over the next two years.

Why PCI Compliance Matters:

PCI compliance, short for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliance, is essential for any business handling credit card transactions. It ensures the safe handling of sensitive payment card information, safeguarding both customers and businesses from data breaches and fraud.
