PCI DSS compliance in its 5th year

Chauntry has achieved for the fifth consecutive year the highest level of PCI DSS accreditation for its hosted software solution, ‘Parkspace™’. The software is the leading solution for car park pre-booking globally; and is delivered as a fully hosted service to car park operators and airports.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. These standards are enforced by the payment brands and acquirers, and apply to all organisations or merchants, regardless of size or number of transactions.

The PCI DSS covers 6 major security objectives which are tied to 12 specific PCI DSS requirements and these in turn relate to over 200 separate compliance checks, all of which must be approved before attestation of compliance can be achieved.

The Chauntry Parkspace™ solution, which enables airport and car park operators to pre-book parking spaces and other types of travel related services online, is a completely integrated element of the airport and car park operators’ web sites. This means that PCI compliance is absolutely critical to the operators and without it they would be unable to accept credit card payments.
In addition to this, brand reputation and customer loyalty is extremely important for businesses providing a pre-booking service, especially when it comes to protecting customer data

Ray Vaughan, Technical Director, says

“Achieving the highest level of security has always been of paramount importance. Every year we invest significantly to enhance our security systems. We never compromise on security & the fact we are now entering our 6th year of compliance demonstrates this.”

Chauntry is the world’s leading specialist in airport pre-booking systems and was founded in 1991. Chauntry’s Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, ‘Parkspace™’, is PCI accredited and hosted and delivered from secure data centres in the UK. This solution is used by airports across 4 continents.
