Why FlashParking

PCI Compliance

Put the Burden on Us


The best way to protect the safety of cardholder data is to make sure that the data is continually secure, from the moment a credit card reader captures data to when it flows through the payment system.

In 2006, the major payment cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB International) developed the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. When properly implemented and maintained, these security standards combat the risk of hackers and fraudulent charges.

What we’ve seen with Flash has been really remarkable. It’s been one of the only solutions we’ve ever installed, and not had one service or support call 6 months down the road.

How FlashParking Simplifies and Streamlines PCI DSS Compliance and Maintenance

At FlashParking, we are committed to delivering PCI DSS compliant technology that takes the burden away from our customers. Our system is PCI DSS certified as a Level 1 Service Provider, which means we ensure that a payment processing system can handle millions of transactions daily in a reliable and safe environment. It is the highest level of PCI compliance available.

We do so by building and maintaining secure networks and systems. As soon as a customer swipes his/her credit card, the information stored on a credit card is encrypted at the head of the credit card reader and sent over to the payment gateway. We never store credit card information on our system, but all other data, such as transaction records, is stored in the Microsoft cloud.

We are experts at providing PCI DSS compliance for all equipment, hardware and software.

There are two primary routes to PCI compliance:

1. A PA DSS certified application or system. This means that this system is capable of achieving PCI compliance if you follow the hundreds of guidelines and on-going maintenance that is required by PCI. This type of system will be hosted on-site and it is the parking provider’s responsibility to ensure the system is maintained properly to achieve PA DSS compliance. Simply put, the burden lies on the parking operator to maintain PCI compliance.

2. A PCI DSS, Level 1 Service Provider such as FlashParking. In this case, the Service Provider takes on the majority of the burden of maintaining compliance. This reduces your PCI scope significantly.
