24 Solutions has successfully served the FinTech industry in Sweden since 2001 with a range of IT solutions. With a team of Italian PCI specialists and a large demand for PCI DSS and PCI QSA services in Italy the company is now opening an office in Rome. 24 Solutions can therefore facilitate the growth of e-commerce in Italy by being a one-stop-shop to PCI DSS compliance.
24 Solutions is a full-service FinTech provider with headquarters in Stockholm. The company has the infrastructure and platform services to provide a full-blown managed PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliant environment. And, is an approved PCI QSA company, which means that it is certified to complete PCI DSS audits for third parties. The combination enables customers to reach 100% PCI DSS compliance and certification with 24 Solutions as “Unique Point of Compliance” provider.
“With three Security Specialists from Italy on staff it feels like we established ourselves in Italy several years ago. Now we are able to sell our competence locally and meet the demand that we know is there for especially PCI-related services,” says Daniel Werner, CEO, 24 Solutions.
From large corporations to small Internet stores, compliance with PCI DSS is vital for anyone that accepts credit cards, online or offline, because securing payment card data is crucial. In Italy e-commerce is accelerating quickly even though Internet penetration is relatively low. The growth is mainly due to the increase in mobile phones, especially smartphones. Today over 20% of Italians make regular purchases with their mobiles or tablets as compared to only 5% in 2012.
“Pre-paid cards are a popular form of payment in Italy because they are considered secure. This tells us that to increase the use of credit cards we need to instill a feeling of security and trust in e-payments, which PCI DSS can provide. If you comply with PCI DSS, customers cardholder data is protected with the highest security standards available today,” says Italian Country Director Amedeo Lupinelli.
