MANAMA: Sadad Bahrain, a payment processor, announced it has received the latest version of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) certification.
The accreditation was granted to the company in recognition of its strict adherence to guidelines that safeguard consumers’ payment transactions through added reliability and security measures.
“The certification reiterates our commitment to delivering cutting-edge, secure payment channels and services, with the utmost security, protecting critical data,” said Sadad Bahrain director of IT Danial Jawaid.
“Protecting the privacy of our customers and service providers has always been a top priority at Sadad. We deal with several partners and it is a remarkable achievement that adds to the confidence to our partners that we have always been safeguarding their important information. PCI-DSS will allow us to serve more in this regard and provide better international standards of security to customers.
“Sadad is continuously focused on developing services that add value to consumers, and soon we will launch mWallet, a smartphone application that will allow both customers and merchants to make cashless transactions. It will also allow customers to deposit funds into their mWallets,” added Mr Jawaid.
PCI-DSS is a globally recognised standard attesting to secure storage and transmission of sensitive cardholder information during credit and debit card transactions and protecting cardholders against fraud and misuse of personal information.
