Multi Service Corporation announced that it has achieved Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) revalidation through February, 2010. Multi Service is a global provider of billing and payment systems, such as credit cards, with particular expertise in the transportation industry.
The company was founded in 1978 with the launch of the Multi Service Fuel Card, which combines the purchasing power of small- and medium-sized fleets to obtain low average cash prices at truck stops throughout the United States and Canada. Today, the company provides program options to suit the varying needs of small and growing businesses, including a Rebate Program that offers fleets the opportunity to earn up to ten cents back on every gallon of fuel they purchase within the Rebate Network.
As a function of administering the fuel card program, Multi Service stores, processes and transmits transaction data. “Fleets rely on the fuel card to minimize their fuel costs and streamline their administrative accounting costs,” says Jake Sitler, General Manager of the MS Fuel Card Program. “But ensuring the privacy and security of their transaction data is equally important to us. Maintaining PCI-DSS compliance serves as evidence of our ongoing commitment to client-data integrity.”
PCI-DSS is an industry-adopted set of technical and operational standards implemented to prevent security vulnerabilities. The company underwent an extensive security audit in order to be named a fully-compliant Level 1 service provider. In order to maintain compliance certification, Multi Service will undergo annual revalidation.
