Datapipe Announces Sponsorship of PCI London 2011
Jersey City, N.J. – July 6, 2011 – Datapipe, a leading provider of managed services and infrastructure for IT and cloud computing, today announced that it will sponsor PCI London 2011, a leading forum for sharing strategic, operational and technical knowledge on how best to reduce the risks to cardholder data and meet compliance requirements. Joel Friedman, Chief Security Officer at Datapipe, will speak at the event in partnership with Datapipe customer, Christophe Lienhard, Chief Operating Officer at Lotaris.
At the event, Friedman and Lienhard will discuss the business challenges and implementation of a secure mobile payment platform. In particular, they will address the key business challenges faced by Lotaris and similar companies who are expanding rapidly and require managed IT solutions in the cloud that are elastic and robust enough to grow with business requirements while still meeting compliance requirements.
Lotaris recently selected Datapipe to power its Licensed Mobile Environment® (LME), a world class infrastructure service delivery platform. Datapipe worked with Lotaris to implement a hybrid solution deploying dedicated machines, community and private cloud infrastructure.
“Although enterprises seek to capitalize on the value of cloud solutions, compliance drivers may keep adoption at bay,” said Friedman. “At Datapipe, we think it’s important for enterprises to understand the risks associated with cloud, and address those risks in a commercially flexible, agile and scalable manner.”
Datapipe’s solution is designed in accordance with the recently released Information supplement: PCI DSS Virtualization Guidelines by the PCI Security Standards Council. Datapipe is a Level 1 PCI DSS Validated Service Provider offering a solution set based on industry-proven methodologies and best-of-breed service offerings.
