Accept Credit Cards on Your Website? You Need PCI Compliance
July 11, 2017
Many of our customers have started their dream and built their website. They are selling online and taking credit card payments without knowing anything about PCI compliance, what it is and the risk of not being compliant.
Did you know there are major fines to face should your website be breached and not be PCI compliant. As much as $50-$90 per record stolen is the cost of a data breach. The bad guys want that data because they want to resell it on the darknet or black market to thieves who want to use those credit cards for their own financial gain.
One of the requirements of PCI compliance is having a Web Application Firewall in front of your website. If you accept credit cards on your site and do not know explicitly that you have a Web Application Firewall it is only a matter of time before you face severe consequences of that.
CyFLare Pulse Prevent provides this Web Application Firewall and it is easy to enable. Do not get caught off guard or worse by not having this protection in place.
