PCI Design and Assessment Services:

Protect Your Business and Your Customers Data with PCI Compliance

If you are trying to understand how to keep customer information safe from data breaches, you are not alone. Every business, regardless of size, is a target —some of the world’s biggest corporations have experienced data breaches with staggering hard and soft costs in the form of lost customers and brand damage. If you have customer credit card information anywhere on your network, you need to keep that information secure — and constantly comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards.

Extreme Networks can help bring together the critical pieces of your business to create a PCI compliant solution, so you can mitigate the risks of security breaches and help decrease the cost of compliance. We understand that PCI is more than just a one-time compliance audit; it’s about securing your mission-critical business data, so your systems are secure and customers can trust you with their sensitive payment card information. With a full range of PCI services, Extreme Networks is uniquely positioned to help you develop, implement and manage the most appropriate PCI capable solution for your organization.

Extreme Networks Security Service is designed to help customers proactively achieve and sustain compliance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) requirements and protect payment card data.
