PCI-DSS Development

ZGtec is a PCI-DSS compliant service provider

With web-based security threats on the rise, ZGtec became a Level 1 PCI-DSS web solutions provider in 2012. Our certified team uses secure development best practices to build cardholder data storage systems to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.

Building PCI-DSS applications can be a very time consuming and expensive endeavor. Whenever possible, we use the knowledge gained in the PCI-DSS certification process to suggest, build and implement online applications that keep our customers’ websites out of the PCI-DSS scope. This means most merchants can de-scope their filings from an SAQ-D to an SAQ-C or even an SAQ-A depending on their circumstances.

Most free secure web development software is not built on security best practices and is often playing catch-up with yesterdays vulnerabilities. We use Zend and MySQL frameworks to deliver true PCI-DSS applications―from the ground up. This ensures in-scope functionality will be limited as much as possible to keep your vulnerability footprint as light as possible.


ZGtec works tirelessly and efficiently, making effective suggestions along the way to maximize cost savings. I highly recommend Paul Fowler and ZGtec as a collaborative, talented and knowledgeable resource for those seeking a true partner in establishing or maintaining a state-of-the-art web presence.
