As the world’s largest cloud-native company, it is essential to Cloudreach’s operations that they create an environment of total reliability where security is a priority.
From intelligent cloud adoption to taking advantage of serverless machine learning, Cloudreach helps organizations define, improve and optimize their agility, efficiency and operations. By taking a security-focused and security-first approach, and to ensure support of their customer security needs, Cloudreach achieved certification for ISO 27001, SOC 2 and Cyber Essentials.
To further their commitment to their customers and security, Cloudreach sought out to achieve PCI DSS compliance in the summer of 2018. With a timeline of only a few months, it was imperative to quickly assess the PCI requirements versus their current baseline and partner with a company who could walk them through PCI compliance for the first time.
By partnering with A-LIGN, Cloudreach had a partner who could answer any questions and help them along their journey. Cloudreach was in a unique position – they identify as a service provider but do not currently store or process customer cardholder data. This was an important aspect to distinguish as this affects what the scope of Cloudreach’s environment is and what will be tested against. A-LIGN recommended that Cloudreach narrow their environment scope, helping to carve out unnecessary complexity and direct their focus on areas to improve.

Achieving PCI DSS compliance can be a massive feat for any company and, thanks to the guidance, clarity and direction provided by the team at A-LIGN, Cloudreach was proud to announce in January 2019 that it earned PCI DSS Level 1 compliance for its Cloud Operations services.
Why PCI DSS Matters
Security remains high on the agenda for many IT decision makers. A survey carried out by Gartner in 2018 investigated information security buyer purchasing preferences. It found 51% of respondents identified risk as their primary purchasing motivator, with 31% linking business-related concerns like complying with compliance mandates and improving risk management. With clear demand in the market to address these concerns, Cloudreach once again seeks out to strengthen its commitment to investing in security, risk management and demonstrating compliance. As a service provider and trusted partner to its customers, PCI DSS provides peace of mind that Cloudreach’s processes and networks are on par with the highest industry standards.
