Web Werks Data Center achieves PCI DSS Certification

Web Werks, a pioneer in the data center industry in India, has been operating Tier 3
and Tier 4 carrier-neutral data centers in India and USA, since 1996. Apart from ISO
9001, 20000-1, 22301 and 27001 security accreditations, our IBM built Tier 4 data
center has now received the prestigious Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard
(PCI DSS) v3.1 compliance certification as well.

Hosting in the Web Werks data center allows not only e-commerce, Banking, Financial
Services, Insurance (BFSI) clients but also clients of all types, a physical, network
and infrastructure security needed to protect sensitive cardholder data and meet PCI
DSS compliance standards for their business. Web Werks can now build PCI compliant
services for customers and help them meet the compliance standards too.

Nikhil Rathi, CEO, Web Werks adds, 'Seeing BFSI clients struggle with PCI compliance
adherence made us realize a real market problem that needed fixing. With Web Werks as
the hosting provider, our clients will be able to leverage our PCI DSS compliance and
easily get PCI compliant themselves. This adds yet another layer of security to the
customer's data.'
