Member Solutions Achieves Highest Level of Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance Certification


Member Solutions, the leading provider of full-service membership billing, payment processing and member management software solutions for membership businesses, today announced that the company has been re-certified as a Level One PCI-compliant Service Provider under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Achieving this level of PCI compliance means that Member Solutions adheres to the most rigorous industry-recognized payment card security standard available.

“As a leader in billing and payment processing, it’s vitally important that we meet the most stringent industry criteria to protect cardholder data for our clients and customers,” said Steven Pinado, CEO of Member Solutions. “This certification underscores our ongoing commitment and investment in providing the most secure payment processing environment.”

Each year, Member Solutions services nearly two million consumer obligations and processes in excess of $200 million on behalf of its clients through its proprietary PCI-compliant payment processing platform. Corporate clients also utilize Member Solutions’ platform through its application programming interface (API) for enterprise-level billing and payment processing solutions.

All merchants and service providers that process, store and transmit credit card information are required to comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) requirements to protect cardholder data and prevent theft. Compliance requirements are divided into three levels based on transaction volume. Level One carries the most stringent certification requirements.

Level One PCI re-certification was awarded to Member Solutions after a comprehensive on-site audit of the company’s headquarters and an offsite audit of its production environment hosted by Xand.

The audit includes recurring network security scans, system penetration testing, and a full review of the company’s systems, processes, and documented policies and procedures.

Trustwave, the leading provider of on-demand data security and payment card industry compliance, and a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) registered with the PCI Security Standards Council, performed the PCI-DSS review and awarded Level One PCI compliance to Member Solutions.
