All merchants accepting credit card payments online are required to comply with PCI DSS standards. ShieldQ, as part of the InterFAX group, is PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant: the highest level of PCI accreditation. With ShieldQ, sensitive card data never touches your servers, significantly reducing your scope, and helping avoid a costly, time-consuming and lengthy on­site data security assessment. We have received our Attestation of Compliance (AOC) from an independent, approved PCI-Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).
