Web Hosting ServicesANDOVER, Mass. – NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ: NAVI), a leading provider of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting and application management services, today announced that Harrods, the world renowned department store in London, has selected NaviSite for a PCI-compliant web hosting solution.

Harrods, considered the world’s most famous department store, required an enterprise hosting solution that met all of its security needs for storing customer cardholder data, specifically maintaining Harrods’ adherence to the stringent requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). At the same time, Harrods desired a solution that reduced its overall IT costs. After a rigorous selection process, Harrods chose NaviSite for its hosting experience; its ability to engineer a solution that met Harrods’ specific requirements; and its cloud enabled enterprise hosting vision and strategy.

“After a thorough evaluation process, we determined that the NaviSite solution best addressed our technical requirements and financial objectives,” said David Llamas, Chief Technology Officer, Harrods. “NaviSite’s adherence to best business processes made it easy to work together to develop and implement a hosting solution that maintained our existing PCI compliance at an extremely attractive price point. We were also impressed with NaviSite’s vision for enterprise-class cloud-enabled hosting.”


NaviSite implemented an enterprise hosting service featuring leading edge VMware virtualization technology, providing Harrods with a flexible and scalable solution. Security is enforced by a combination of best-in-breed firewalls at the network edge, intrusion detection systems, application firewalling to protect Internet facing traffic, VLAN segregation, and two-factor authentication for all administrative users. Harrods is also currently evaluating NaviSite as a potential hosting partner for a much wider cloud-enabled solution as part of Harrods next technology infrastructure refresh cycle.
