PayLease, a leading online payments provider for the property management and HOA industry, today announced its recertification as a Level 1 Service Provider with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). A Level 1 certification is the highest level of compliance available for payment merchants and signifies that all transactions processed by PayLease comply with the most stringent security standards.
The PCI Security Standards Council, an organization founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International, is an independent body formed to develop, enhance, disseminate, and assist with the implementation of standards for payment account security.
To achieve PCI Level 1 status, PayLease’s networks and data security procedures were subjected to an extensive and thorough third-party audit process. Additionally, there are a multitude of daily, monthly, and quarterly tasks that the firm is required to complete to maintain its Level 1 status.
Wade Williams, Vice President of Engineering at PayLease, commented on the firm’s recertification. “Maintaining a secure network and protecting customer data is a top priority at PayLease. Our dedication to security is an important reason why so many property management companies choose to work with us. Obtaining a PCI Level 1 certification requires an arduous amount of work, but it is worth it to be able to give clients the added confirmation that their business is safe with us.”
