The company’s information infrastructure and its specialists successfully passed all the necessary verification procedures.
“Once again, we can state that our approach is correct, when our security consultant is involved at an early stage of creating IT solutions, – said Sergey Shustikov, Deiteriy's CEO, – it is much easier to develop a secure system from scratch than to protect a system constructed without proper regard to security requirements at the design stage. I’d like to thank the Smartfin’s staff for careful implementation of consultants’ recommendations enabling us to build a secure environment for payment card data processing.”
Reports prepared by Deiteriy’s QSA auditors following the results of certification tests confirm the high level of security of 2can service payment transactions.
