– Continues BillingTree’s compliance-focused approach to operations and procedures

Phoenix, Ariz. – June 23, 2015 BillingTree® today announced it has once again successfully passed the PCI-DSS audit, this year audited under the new PCI 3.0 standards.  The new PCI-DSS is designed with an increased focus on operational standards, security and training to provide greater clarity and flexibility and ease of implementation for vendors. The latest announcement is a continuation of BillingTree’s commitment to remaining at the leading-edge of industry compliance.

The new requirements of PCI-DSS 3.0 were outlined in February 2014 and became effective in January 2015. To achieve the new PCI-DSS 3.0 certification BillingTree had to meet and maintain 12 security requirements and data standards. These include building and maintaining a secure network, protecting cardholder data, maintaining a vulnerability management program, implementing strong access control measures, regular monitoring and testing of networks and maintaining an information security policy.

This is the latest compliance accreditation for BillingTree. The company holds an ‘A+’ rating by the highly respected Better Business Bureau (BBB) and maintains full accreditation in conformity with the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 – as well as the HIPAA security rule.

“The successful completion of this year’s more comprehensive PCI-DSS 3.0 audit demonstrates BillingTree’s ongoing commitment to maintaining up-to-date industry compliance, which is something we are working closely with our clients on to ensure their path to PCI compliance is well defined and understood,” said Edgars Sturans, CEO and President at BillingTree. “With the current regulatory climate, the relationship between an organization and their payment provider is closer than ever, and with this audit completed our existing and future clients have peace of mind knowing processes and procedures at BillingTree continue to operate in line with latest industry standards.”
