Achieving this level of compliance means that all of Volta’s customers can be confident that their customers’ data is managed and stored in accordance with the most rigorous certification requirements under PCI-DSS.

PCI DSS is an actionable framework defined by the PCI Security Standards Council that encompasses all aspects of payment card processing and transmission. By hosting in Volta’s PCI compliant environment, customers can protect personal information and benefit from a safe, secure, and reliable processing infrastructure.

Volta achieved its PCI DSS v3.1 certification after a comprehensive external audit by accredited PCI consultants of its Great Sutton Street facilities. The audit included scans of Volta’s network security and a full review of the data centre’s systems, processes, and documented policies and procedures.

Being a PCI DSS compliant provider is a vital part of promoting a reliable and secure data centre, especially at a time when businesses are facing increasing threats from hacking and data theft. Volta’s customers can be confident that Volta’s security standards will give them a great infrastructure whilst protecting their sensitive data credit card data.

This PCI DSS certification is the most recent measure of Volta’s commitment to security; in July, Volta was granted ISO 27001:2013 security standard accreditation, validating to our partners and customers that we are committed to best practices and robust security procedures.

Volta’s Central London Data Centre is resolutely committed to obtaining and maintaining the highest quality standards in the IT industry. Click HERE to learn more about the accreditations that our Central London Data Centre in Great Sutton Street has been independently audited and awarded.
