As of February 26, 2009, 3dCart and Florida Hydraulic have officially become PCI DDS compliant. In a growing effort to preserve the integrity of personal information, the PCI Security Standards Council has put forth a series of regulations online business must follow to ensure the security of online shopping. 3dCart has met and surpassed all standards outlined by the PCI Security Standards council with flying colors – not only did we invest in over $50,000 of state of the art network security software, but we have proven our security management, security policies, network architecture, and software design are protected and free of any vulnerabilities that may hinder your online business. In addition, all tests were conducted by two third party companies, SecurityMetrics and Plynt, which guarantees no shortcuts were taken in proving our compliancy.
