Google’s Cloud Platform has been validated for compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) specification, allowing customers to now hold, process, or exchange cardholder information from credit cards.
Alongside this certification, Google announced it has entered a partnership with WePay.
"Google Cloud Platform will enable WePay to process our partners’ transactions in a fully scalable, highly available environment with robust security features," said David Nye, Director of DevOps at WePay.
"The new PCI DSS certification that Google Cloud Platform has achieved enables WePay to dynamically grow our infrastructure as fast as our business and our partners’ businesses demand."
Google said that the PCI specification provides a comprehensive and robust security framework for securing credit card information and transactions.
"We are looking forward to helping customers write great apps on Google Cloud Platform with PCI DSS compliance."
