TORONTO – August 19, 2013

PCI Compliance LogoTenzing Managed IT Services (Tenzing), a leading provider of hosting solutions for ecommerce clients, System Integrators (SIs) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), providers, today announced that it has successfully achieved the renewal of its Attestation of Compliance (AOC) for PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard, Service Providers) and has received a Report on Compliance (ROC) from its Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). Furthermore, Tenzing is now recognized in its AOC as a PCI-compliant enterprise that provides Hosting Services for Hardware and Managed Services.

In addition to its compliance renewal, Tenzing has also enhanced its PCI-DSS compliance scope by adding Anti-Virus as a new service to its AOC. This new service enables Tenzing customers to maintain a vulnerability management program, a key control objective under PCI-DSS compliance.

“Tenzing’s renewal of PCI-DSS compliance and recent enhancements to the scope of this compliance demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the highest level of data protection and infrastructure security for our customers,” said Keith Gaudreau, Vice President of IT and Operations at Tenzing. “Our expertise in e-commerce and supporting platforms including Oracle ATG, Magento and WebSphere, combined with the new enhancements we made to our PCI-DSS scope, will help customers ensure that they meet their PCI requirements on their mission critical platforms.”

In addition to PCI-DSS compliance, Tenzing annually maintains other major industry certifications including ISO 27001 and SSAE16 Type II. In 2012, Tenzing also registered with VISA as a certified PCI Level 1 compliant service provider, indicating that stored credit card data on its clients’ systems is handled with the highest levels of protection possible.
