Tenzing Expands Coveted PCI-DSS Compliance to Include AWS Infrastructure

TORONTO – August 21, 2014


Tenzing Deepens Security and Trust for Clients Leveraging Tenzing Hybrid Infrastructure

Tenzing Managed IT Services, an ecommerce managed services company, announced today that it has achieved and extended full compliance for the rigorous Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for 2014.  Furthermore, Tenzing has extended the scope of its compliance to include Amazon Web Services (AWS). In meeting and passing these standards, Tenzing has been issued both a Report on Compliance (ROC) and an Attestation of Compliance (AOC).

“The advanced security features we have built into our systems, networks, and processes, helps our clients to provide a high level of assurance for the safety and security of their customers’ sensitive data. Tenzing’s investments in security and adherence in being compliant and third-party audited against standards like PCI-DSS, reduces the cost and burden for our merchants to be compliant by reducing the scope for their annual PCI-DSS compliance.” said Ali Shahidi, Director of Information Security at Tenzing. “In addition” states Shahidi, “our AOC now covers merchants that we deploy on  Amazon Web Services (AWS)..”

Raj Atwal, Vice President and General Manager eCommerce at Tenzing said, “This further enhances Tenzing as a leading provider of ecommerce services  for leading merchants. We are witnessing greater acceptance of Infrastructure-As-A-Service public clouds like AWS by merchants. We have been working diligently to extend our PCI-DSS compliance beyond our own datacenters to meet the needs of these merchants so they can benefit from public clouds and yet ensure they meet the PCI-DSS standards, ultimately providing consumers the confidence to shop at their online channel. ”

This latest certification follows Tenzing’s recent announcements regarding managed services for AWS and its partnership with Magento.
