With Skyflow, you can achieve and maintain PCI compliance quickly by offloading most aspects of compliance to Skyflow. Keeping credit card data in a Data Privacy Vault frees you to optimize payment logic and avoid expensive PCI data lock-in as your business scales up.
Skyflow Data Privacy Vault takes a zero trust approach to data privacy – never trust, always verify. Every data access request from any user or service gets thoroughly validated so sensitive data can only be accessed for the right reasons.
Isolate, protect, and manage sensitive PCI data through the whole lifecycle so you can use it securely without replicating it across your infrastructure. Keep the scope of PCI compliance to a minimum and skip the complexity of managing a patchwork of point solutions.
Integrate with third-party services, run workflows, and more – all without storing any sensitive PCI data in your back-end systems. Get value out of sensitive customer data without sacrificing data privacy and security.
Quickly build and centrally manage the data access flows you need, within your organization and with third parties. Centrally control who sees what data, when, where, and how using any combination of policies, roles, and attributes.
If your business handles credit card transactions, you are obligated to comply with PCI. There are a few ways you can achieve PCI compliance depending on the size of your company, but it generally breaks down to obtaining PCI compliance on your own or offloading most aspects of compliance responsibilities to a service provider.
PCI non-compliance can result in fines, which can vary from $5,000 to $100,000 a month depending on the size of the company and the duration of non-compliance. Additionally, banks and payment processors may increase transaction fees or terminate the relationship with your company altogether resulting in lost revenue.
Skyflow helps you Isolate, protect, and manage sensitive PCI data through the whole lifecycle so you can use it securely without replicating it across your infrastructure. Sensitive PCI data gets captured directly through Skyflow’s SDK and stored in a zero trust Data Privacy Vault. When you need to transmit PCI data to a trusted third party (such as a payment processor), that data is sent directly from the Data Privacy Vault with no exposure to your backend.
Skyflow Data Privacy Vault is not just a quick way to achieve PCI compliance as your business gets started, keeping credit card data in a Data Privacy Vault frees you to optimize payment logic and avoid payment processor lock-in as your business scales up.
There are two categories of PCI compliance: PCI Compliance for Merchants and PCI Compliance for Service Providers. As a PCI Level 1 service provider, Skyflow makes it easy to accelerate compliance across these categories and at each level.
PCI Compliance for Merchants:
Compliance for merchants consists of four levels that are defined by the number of payment card transactions. The highest level, Compliance Level 1, is for companies that process over 6 million payments a year. From there, the levels decrease as the number of payments processed annually decreases until Compliance Level 4 is reached, which is for companies with less than 20,000 transactions.
Compliance Level 1 has a unique requirement – companies that process 6 million or more transactions a year must submit a compliance report that has been reviewed by an independent Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). The PCI SSC keeps a database of all qualified assessors. For other compliance levels, typically a self-attestation is required to gain PCI compliance.
PCI Compliance for Service Providers:
Compliance for service providers consists of two levels, the first for service providers that process more than 300,000 transactions and the second for less than 300,000 transactions.
Companies must obtain an Attestation of Compliance (AOC), perform a network scan by an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) – repeated quarterly – and work with a third-party QSA to perform a ROC on an annual basis in order to obtain compliance Level 1.
PCI consists of twelve principal requirements, which summarize over one hundred specific sub-requirements or “controls”:
Skyflow can help you securely migrate your PCI data from your payment processor into a Data Privacy Vault. With your PCI data under your control, you can work with multiple payment processors and enjoy the best rates without added risk.
