PCI Compliant Platform Versus PCI Certified Platform: Several payment applications self-proclaim themselves to be PCI Compliant. All that takes is for a vendor to do a Self- Assessment questionnaire and decide for themselves if they believe they meet the PCI Standards. PCI Certified applications like Ignify ecommerce are audited by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) that is certified by the PCI Standards Council. After that, a final validation is done by the PCI Standards Council.
Because data security is one of the upmost priorities of any business, Ignify eCommerce underwent the rigorous process of going through all the steps required to become certified on the PA DSS 1.2 Standard by the PCI Standards Council – the Council’s highest level of security. To attain this certification, Ignify first performed a self-attestation of the Ignify eCommerce software, and then an independent audit was conducted by a Payment Application QSA. After reviewing the self-attestation and QSA audit, the PCI Standards Council awarded Ignify eCommerce the PA DSS 1.2 Standard designation on October 21, 2009 for Ignify eCommerce Version 4.0. Ignify eCommerce Version 4.11 was recertified by the QSA and re-validated by the PCI Standards Council on September 23, 2010.
The Ignify ecommerce product development team evaluates every new feature for PCI compliance during design, technical specification, development and testing processes of the SDLC. The figure below shows how PCI compliance is woven into the Agile Development methodology that our product team follows.

In addition to the guidelines provided by the PCI Standards Council, Ignify goes over above by offering additional features to eliminate credit card fraud. For example, Ignify ecommerce provides a parameterized Auto Fraud screen that allows merchants to enter in criteria to track fraud. For example in the screen shot below if an order meets any of these conditions it is marked as a potentially fraudulent order for additional research.
Condition 1: If order is from a new customer AND over 50 dollars
Or Condition 2: If Order is over 1000 dollars in value. Merchants can setup additional custom parameters like this to eliminate fraud that may not be caught through traditional AVS verification tools that a payment gateway provides.
Finally, Ignify provides a detailed PCI Deployment guide that allows you to deploy Ignify ecommerce with a deployment architecture that provides for greater security and makes your deployment hacker-proof to the extent possible.
