Aiven is now PCI-DSS compliant

Aiven’s latest compliance standard ensures its customers’ have the most comprehensive data protection.

HELSINKI, Finland — October 22, 2020- Aiven, a leading technology company that combines the best open-source technologies with cloud infrastructure, today announces its services meet all Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) compliance requirements. This global security standard for information is designed to ensure that companies processing, storing or transmitting payment card information maintain a secure environment.

Customers requiring full PCI-DSS compliance can now leverage Aiven services, and they can opt-in to enable the required security options when launching a service on the Aiven platform. A recent study found that only 27.9% of global organizations were in full compliance with PCI-DSS, which shows that many companies are potentially leaving consumers’ data vulnerable to cyber attacks.

“Our PCI-DSS compliant status is just another sign of the progress we’ve made in providing top-notch security for our clients across AWS, GCP, and Azure cloud platforms,” said Heikki Nousiainen, CTO at Aiven. “This addition to our information security certifications makes Aiven the most comprehensively secure and compliant open source data platform.”

PCI-DSS is a mandated standard for many financial applications, and while it is naturally most often required by financial service providers, it’s also becoming more common across all industries for companies needing to meet the highest security standards. PCI-DSS adds to Aiven’s existing SOC 2, ISO 27001, GDPR and HIPAA compliances and demonstrates its commitment to customer information security, ensuring Aiven’s services meet standards of security assurance required by even the most regulated industries.

"At Ziglu, it’s imperative we have the most resilient and secure data infrastructure on the market because we handle crypto and fiat currencies,” said Hussein Badakhchani, CTO at Ziglu, a cryptocurrency app. “Aiven has a unique capability to provide database services that meet our high standards. Aiven's PCI-DSS compliance is more proof of their commitment to security and data privacy."
