Credit card processor turns to Latisys for PCI-compatible status, multi-site redundancy

Englewood, COLORADO (September 16, 2009) – Latisys, a leading provider of colocation, managed hosting, managed services and disaster recovery solutions, today announced that BluePay, one of the leading full-service providers of credit card processing and merchant accounts, has selected Latisys for data center colocation and managed services.

Organizations depend on BluePay for all aspects of credit card processing and payment transaction needs. Because BluePay maintains the highest standards of payment account data security through its Payment Card Industry (PCI) DSS-compliant payment gateway, it sought a PCI-compatible colocation provider that would further enable the firm to secure customers’ data and account information.

“Latisys’ ability to provide multi-site storage and point-to-point connectivity between geographically dispersed colocation facilities and PCI-compatible status meets the evolving security and redundancy needs of our customers,” said John Rante, CEO, BluePay. “And by leveraging Latisys for capital-intensive VMware and SAN managed services, BluePay can ensure its resources are best allocated to benefit our customers.”

BluePay selected Latisys to provide a number of colocation and managed services, including:

  • PCI-Compatible security services including firewall, IDS, SSL certificates, etc. that helps BluePay meet credit card processing guidelines
  • Managed Storage Area Network (SAN) connectivity between the Chicago and Denver facility for geographically dispersed, cost effective and scalable data storage
  • Virtualized VMware environment that maximizes hardware utilization and reduces hardware and operating costs

“Organizations that require multi-site redundancy and enhanced security for customers’ data are increasingly turning to Latisys for its uniquely scalable and secure services and infrastructure,” said Peter Stevenson, CEO, Latisys. “BluePay has been steadfast in its commitment to providing its customers with the highest level of data security, and we look forward to helping them build upon this mission.”
