Frequently Asked Questions

What are my responsiblities as a merchant?

It is your responsibility to create & maintain a secure environment where the credit card data is not breached.

We provide the firewalls, switches, segregate the network, run quarterly scans, provide you with SAQ and AoC yearly.

You will have to ensure your staff is trained and certified to look out for suspicious activity, ensure you do not use default passwords, do not write card numbers, and discard them securely to name a few of your responsibilities

How often do I need to check my network?

You do not need to, we will scan the network automatically every 3 months. If everything passes, you will receive your SAQ questionnaire to answer and you are done.

If there are any issues, our staff will work with you to resolve them before retesting the network.

How do I know if I am compliant?

There are 12 steps to PCI compliance that you must follow and if all steps are successfully completed, then you will get your compliance letter. These are usually provided every 3 months after a successful network scan.

How do I manage the Guest WiFi?

Guest WiFi is one of the easiest ways for someone to breach into your network. You must take measures to ensure your Guest WiFi is segregated from all other traffic with no access to credit card data.

With our standard PCI Compliance deployment, your Guest WiFi is physically segregated from all other network traffic

Am I PCI compliant and secured if I use the ISP equipment?

No, using the ISP equipment is perhaps the worse decision you can make. Using the default equipment, you will expose yourself and your business to unnecessary risks.

The ISP is providing you the required equipment to get you online but not to keep your network secured and PCI Compliant

Who do I contact in case of support?

Our support team has full access to our managed firewalls, switches, guest WiFi, and your network. Please contact our support team in case you have any questions.
