DataStax Brings the Power of Real-time Data to Applications Processing Credit Card Data

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 22, 2023 — DataStax, the real-time AI company, has achieved Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance for Astra DB on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This designation, governed by the PCI Security Standards Council, enables organizations that accept, transmit, or store cardholder data to utilize Astra DB –  the serverless cloud database built on the open source Apache Cassandra database – to securely run business-critical applications powered by high-scale, real-time data.

Rigorous PCI DSS standards ensure that companies managing payment information, such as credit card, debit card and electronic check data, maintain a secure environment. PCI-compliant organizations hold a reputation of trustworthiness that customers can depend on.

“By attaining PCI compliance, DataStax can serve an even greater array of customers looking to leverage the power of real-time data to meet the needs of their business –  all while ensuring the privacy and integrity of the data stored in Astra DB,” said Ed Anuff, chief product officer at DataStax. “Now, any organization that processes payment information and requires PCI compliant applications or services can use Astra DB to access and leverage the full power of Cassandra without the pain of managing infrastructure.”

DataStax’s Astra DB simplifies application development on the world’s most scalable database, Apache Cassandra. The cloud-native platform reduces deployment time from weeks to minutes, and delivers an unprecedented combination of serverless, pay-as-you-go pricing with the freedom and agility of multi-cloud and open source. This provides significant cost-savings and improved efficiency for end-users working with Cassandra. Astra DB empowers organizations to build and scale real-time applications without limits.
