BUSINESS CASE

Bnetwork opts for Linkbynet for PCI-DSS compliant hosting

B-network, leader in event logistics, entrusted Linkbynet with the facilities management of applications under the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard).

Project context


In December 2015, one of B-Network’s customers, specialized in hotel reservations, stated the need to gather and process information concerning its customers’ credit cards in complete security while complying with the requirements of the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

Established by payment card suppliers, this security standard was introduced to tighten e-consumers’ security.

To respond to this need, B-network adopted a solution developed and hosted in a data center. Several months after deploying this solution, the cen-ter was destroyed by a flood.

With the servers out of action, a fast response was needed!

B-Network promptly turned to a Cloud solution that would offer a better guarantee of continuous opera-tional maintenance.

BNetwork decided on the Amazon Web Services solution, which it considered ideal for its needs. Indeed, AWS infrastructure and management tools are level 1 PCI DSS-certified (i.e. the maximum level) and cater to a considerable number of compliance issues.

The AWS marketplace also serves to deploy security software more efficiently, more quickly, and in line with PCI-DSS requirements.

The switch to PCI-DSS and the migration of our infrastructure to the AMAZON WEB SERVICES cloud represented a major challenge for our internal organization.
