GLASGOW, Scotland – February 10, 2021 — / — iomart, the managed cloud and security service provider, has announced it has achieved Level 1 Payments Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification.

Compliance with PCI DSS Level 1 provides independent verification from a Qualified Security Assured Assessor that iomart’s proprietary secure cloud service and data centres meet the highest levels of security and compliance for the processing, storage and transmission of cardholder data.

Reece Donovan, CEO of iomart, said: “Achieving the highest level of PCI DSS certification provides our customers with the reassurance that the security and governance of their data is our top priority. They can focus on delivering their services knowing that we have got everything in place to keep their card payment data safe.”
