Any Danish company approved for working with e-commerce must adhere to some very stringent security requirements. Obviously, this is positive as it ensures that your customers are safe when shopping on your website.
ePay is certified according to the highest level of the PCI standard, which requires compliance with more than 200 security controls. Read more below.
Using the latest web technologies available, we guarantee continuous development of our payment solutions. All our systems are monitored 24 hours a day, and we have an external backup system ensuring that we don’t lose important information. All communication concerning money and card details is encrypted.
We carefully monitor that no one external can break into the communication between you and your customer, but we are also being monitored ourselves. The company FortConsult - which is approved to certify companies handling payment information - is carrying out the surveillance of ePay.
On a regular basis, FortConsult scans our systems searching for security breaches, and once every year they execute a full attack trying to hack into our systems. The close relationship with FortConsult ensures the highest level of security possible.
What is the PCI standard?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard - normally called the PCI standard - was set up in 2005 by Visa and MasterCard. The aim of the initiative was to increase the level of security for online card payments and to ensure common industry security requirements.
The PCI standard specifies a number of requirements for all payment solution providers regarding how sensitive credit card information is handled, stored, and transmitted.
ePay, as well as other Danish companies handling payment card data, must comply with the PCI standard. As the Dankort (the most popular payment card in Denmark) is often combined with a Visa card, the PCI standard applies to the Dankort, too.
