In addition, Vapulus is evaluated for PCI DSS by PSC, a QSA for the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. Our PCI ASV is Qualys. As a principal member and licensed acquirer of Visa and MasterCard, Vapulus also adheres to the card schemes’ operating regulations. Visa, MasterCard and the banks we partner with have the right to subject Vapulus to yearly audits.

 

Vapulus maintains the highest secure standards by operating independent anti-DDOS solutions from two different vendors. For the secure storage of cryptographic keys, Vapulus uses HSMs to which no individual access is granted.
