Web Hosting Services – ALLENTOWN, PA – Leading managed hosting provider INetU, Inc has announced that its exclusive “Gated Community Cloud” global business service has been certified PCI DSS compliant at its US and EU nodes. Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 2.0 Level 1 compliance assures INetU clients that they are invested in a verified production-ready e-commerce cloud environment.
PCI compliant managed services are available immediately at INetU’s Allentown, Pa, Vienna, Va and Amsterdam, Netherlands data center facilities. Because PCI DSS is a global standard, having PCI certified cloud nodes at multiple locations becomes an important attribute for clients who conduct e-commerce on an international level, for those who require global disaster recovery, or both.
“By coupling our custom fully managed Gated Community Cloud infrastructure with the security verification of PCI certification, INetU provides e-commerce enterprises with the confidence to operate in our Cloud safely and cost efficiently” said Dev Chanchani, president and CEO of INetU. “For many organizations, PCI compliance is an essential part of their managed hosting requirements, INetU can fully deliver that requirement with confidence, worldwide.”
INetU’s Gated Community Cloud service was evaluated and certified for PCI DSS 2.0 Level 1 compliance by Trustwave, a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions.
INetU’s unique Gated Community Cloud service offers companies a virtual ‘gated community’ where only exclusive medium to large enterprises have access to a business specific cloud environment that offers strong performance promises, expert support and protection from unscheduled downtime. Gated Community Cloud combines the most desirable features of Private Cloud computing with the flexibility and cost efficiencies of a scalable Cloud – all without the risks associated with commercially available Public Clouds.
