The Challenge

Redundancy and highest reliability

The internal IT department of Payrexx consists mainly of software developers without deeper system and network knowledge. For this reason, a partner was specifically sought to manage the compliance requirements of PCI DSS for the processing of credit card data. The decision in favour of AWS was quickly made, as the majority of AWS services already have PCI DSS compliance. A competent partner for the implementation was also quickly found. Through the cooperation with Skaylink, Payrexx was able to expand the functions in the area of online payment and business relationships and always focus on the core business, online payment and web programming. All Payrexx systems are designed redundantly, guarantee the highest level of reliability and are certified according to the strictest PCI-DSS Level-1 guidelines.
