Payment specialist ONPEX relies on OVH's dedicated cloud service
Press Release: ONPEX using PCI-DSS compliant solution to meet highest safety requirements.
Saarbrücken, Germany, 16th March 2016: Award-winning payment specialist ONPEX implements OVH dedicated cloud service for their payment platform. The new solution, provided by the European market leader OVH to ONPEX since late last year, is PCI-DSS compliant and meets the highest safety requirements (such as ISO 27001, SOC, etc.). This enables ONPEX to operate their Payment-as-a-Service (PaaS) platform as a cloud-based solution, located in secure European data centres. In addition, ONPEX was convinced by the proposed service level agreement as well as the usability of the solution.
ONPEX chose OVH because the provider meets all their requirements when it comes to security standards, SLA, service and usability. A PCI-DSS certificate guarantees the compliance of the OVH Dedicated Cloud service with technical and process-oriented requirements regarding security management, guidelines, processes, network architecture and software design.
Payment providers and merchants not only need high security standards, but they should also be able to overcome national boundaries, as well as to onboard clients as fast as possible and implement new payment methods without effort. The ONPEX offer is provided on a single omni-channel Platform as a Service (PaaS), which facilitates the fast and efficient creation of new databases and applications. In addition, ONPEX’ global platform comprises different local and international payment methods.
Top-level security and full flexibility
“Thanks to the OVH Dedicated Cloud service, we now benefit from state-of-the-art technology without having to invest resources in running our own data center. Colleagues from the payment industry recommended OHV as a partner for our infrastructure”, says Christoph Tutsch, ONPEX’ CEO.
The OVH Dedicated Cloud service’s security features do not stop at the PCI-DSS certification: thanks to a redundant infrastructure, the system provides failsafe performance and offers highest operational reliability. The IT comprises two separate physical servers located in different racks. Virtualization software by the market leader VMware and a dedicated firewall protect the servers from possible attacks.
Other important features are the scalability and flexibility: during peak loads, additional resources can be provided within a few minutes. So all in all, the Dedicated Cloud guarantees optimal performance and availability at any time.
“Using our Dedicated Cloud service, ONPEX can now provide its customers with a Platform as a Service (PaaS) payment solution that meets the industry’s high security standards at all times,” says Peter Höhn, Director Germany at OVH.
