Abu Dhabi, United Arab, Emirates, 31 March 2018:  Etisalat today announced that it has secured Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification for its Data Centers in the UAE, which guarantees maximum safety of customer data at all times, and improved quality and service.

Etisalat’s data centers at Khalifa City, Jebel Ali and Al Ain are now PCI DSS certified.

The certificate of compliance ensures centres to tighten their already stringent security processes and procedures. Other benefits include increased credibility, prevention of data breaches, and a reduction of business risks.

Miguel Angel Villalonga, Vice President, Cloud and Data Center, Etisalat Digital, said: “We understand that security is increasingly important for our clients as they have entrusted us with their sensitive and confidential information.

The PCI DSS certification is another validation of Etisalat’s capability and commitment to implement international standards and develop advanced data systems to keep our clients’ data safe and secure. 

“As technology continues to advance, so do threats facing digital security.

It is imperative that our clients have access to the best network of certified, reliable and secure data centers.

The compliance certificate will be valuable to our customers, who can now benefit from enhanced and security standards.”

The three data centers complied with the requirements of PCI DSS version 3.2. PCI DSS certificates are mandatory for a number of customers by a government authority or a third party.

The PCI DSS standard is an information security standard that governs how organisations that handle payment cardholder information should protect data.

The wide-ranging standard includes criteria on how to create and secure the network, data storage, and security policies.
