PureCloud by Genesys Certified for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

Cloud-based customer engagement solution meets PCI DSS Service Provider Level 2, the most stringent requirements for securing consumer data

SAN FRANCISCO, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesys®, the global leader in omnichannel customer experience and contact center solutions, announced today that PureCloud by Genesys has achieved PCI DSS Service Provider Level 2 certification, the highest standard of consumer credit card security standards.

PureCloud by Genesys, a cloud customer engagement and employee collaboration solution, was validated by an accredited third party to comply with the robust payment card data security process. This certification is vital for Genesys customers interacting in an increasingly global economy — especially retailers.

"Rigorous security procedures are absolutely essential in a complex operational environment where hundreds of people interact with sensitive data every day," said Deepak Advani, executive vice president and managing director for PureCloud by Genesys. "Genesys has a long history of strict adherence to PCI DSS as it offers the highest level of security, compliance and attestation. Achieving Service Provider Level 2 certification for PureCloud by Genesys is an important step in our journey toward offering the most secure cloud solution available to customers."

PCI DSS was designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. It sets prescriptive standards to protect credit card information collected, stored or transmitted in a business transaction. These standards are enforced by a global body of major payment card brands that develop, enhance, disseminate and assist with the understanding of security standards for payment account security. PCI DSS Level 2 certification applies to merchants processing one to six million Visa transactions per year.
