Akash Sinha, CEO and Co-Founder, Cashfree said, “We are happy to have obtained the ISO certification along with PCI-DSS v3.2.1. Data Security should be the top priority of any business looking for a payment platform. Every business has its own specifications for functionality, however, security assurance is a crucial factor in choosing a payment platform. Cashfree’s top priority as a company has always been the security of its merchants and users. As digital adoption accelerates, the threat of cybercrime increases. We monitor payments very frequently, both pay-ins and pay-outs, and use technology to a greater extent to accelerate the process of risk evaluation. With our ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification and PCI-DSS compliance, our customers can be doubly confident in our information security and safety”.
