Dizzion is First Desktop-as-a-Service Company to Achieve PCI Compliance Certification

November 2, 2016

DENVER – November 2, 2016 – Dizzion, Inc., a full-service End User Computing (EUC) provider, today announced that its cloud delivered desktops have been validated by Coalfire, an Independent PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) to meet the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS), as having met the rigorous controls defined for the protection of payment card data.

In today’s rapidly evolving cyber-threat landscape, achieving and maintaining compliance are equally difficult for many organizations, pci-logoespecially those in highly regulated industries like healthcare, business process outsourcing, financial services and insurance. In fact, Verizon’s 2015 PCI Compliance Report indicated that under 30 percent of organizations remained fully PCI compliant less than a year after a successful PCI validation. However, by leveraging Dizzion’s PCI compliant desktop-as-a-service solution, customers will be able to reach these milestones more quickly and maintain compliance more easily.  

“Until now achieving compliance within end user computing has been piece meal at best, but this third party validation allows Dizzion customers to meet the highest levels of security and compliance,” said Steve Prather, President and CEO, Dizzion. “This will enable us to take much of the burden off of our customers, help to reduce the risk of security issues, and allow our customers to focus on their core objectives and growing their businesses.”

Twelve unique technologies and controls have been added to Dizzion’s existing hyper-converged infrastructure enabling its enterprise-grade hardware and software platform to combine into one powerful, seamless, compliant solution. In doing so, Dizzion removes the cost and expertise required in-house to manage end-user PCI compliance and dramatically simplifies the audit process.  

“The amount of time and energy that goes into obtaining and maintaining compliance independently is palpable,” said Kennet Westby, President, Coalfire. “Dizzion’s PCI compliance certification not only eliminates their customers’ internal drain on resources, but also significantly simplifies the audit process for them by leveraging a PCI compliant service.”

“This decision to obtain PCI compliance certification was made not only to set Dizzion apart from our competitors, but to accommodate the 40 plus percent of our business from the financial services, insurance and contact center industries,” said Prather. “As we look to the future, we intend to pursue additional compliance certifications to meet the demands of both our customers and our customers’ customers across a wide variety of industries such as healthcare for which compliance is mandatory.”

Dizzion will achieve its HIPAA compliance certification and Letter of Attestation (LOA) in December 2016. To learn more about Dizzion’s PCI compliance certification, please visit www.dizzion.com/pci.
