Cirion’s Housing and Colocation Services: Credit Card Data Transit Securely through their Data Centers

Its data centers in the region have obtained PCI-DSS compliance after a successful evaluation process assessing compliance with its requirements. This ensures the security of credit card data passing through the company’s data centers, and is aimed primarily at preventing fraud, attacks, and data loss. 

BUENOS AIRES, May 04, 2023 – To continue ensuring the security of customer information, Cirion Technologies, a leading digital infrastructure and technology provider, has finalized the 2023 assessment process for the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), and maintained compliance with requirements 9, 11.1 and 12 (applicable to service providers) in its data centers in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Curitiba (Brazil), Bogota (Colombia XV and SUBA) and Cali (Colombia), Quito (Carcelén) and Guayaquil (Ecuador), Lima (Peru), Santiago (Chile) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). Additionally, there are the Landing Station in Lurín (Peru) and the Teleport in the Argentine capital.

For any company working with confidential data, such as personal or banking information, adopting security measures is critical as it helps organizations and administrative entities protect and transmit more confidence to their users.

This compliance validates the security of credit card data transiting through Cirion’s data centers, and its main objective is to prevent fraud, attacks, and data loss.

PCI-DSS is an international security standard established by the PCI Security Standards Council, an organization founded by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB and Discover, for companies that store, process, or transmit card data.

“This compliance represents an important competitive differential and signals the market that we meet the corporate demands of our customers in e-commerce, banking, finance, and other associated industries who need the peace of mind from knowing that their IT services are hosted on a service provider focused on its customer’s information security”, commented Alexandre Simcsik, Director of Data Center Operations at Cirion.

Cirion operates one of the most interconnected carrier-neutral data center platforms in Latin America, with 18 data centers of its own.  Its portfolio of services offers an IT platform to support business applications with cloud and security solutions, as well as infrastructure such as Hosting and Colocation, developed with an architecture based on strict physical and logical security standards to offer reliable services.
