Web Hosting ToolboxTORONTO, Ontario – Fusepoint Managed Services, a national provider of outsourced IT and infrastructure services, today announced it has, for the third consecutive year, been approved by VISA as compliant with the highest level of Payment Card Industry, Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Fusepoint originally achieved compliance in 2007 to meet the needs of mid-to-large sized enterprise clients who process credit cards and were required to be PCI DSS compliant themselves.
