Providing debit card, credit card and gift card processing services for online merchants may sound straightforward, but these transactions have to adhere to strict and precise PCI DSS regulations. The stakes are high: Non-compliance can result in fines, audits, a damaged reputation or worse.

The company came to SPINEN with a need for a scalable, elastic cloud solution that could fulfill the compliance obligations and perform on demand. We were up for the challenge.
