Leading German Quality Auditor Features allpago in PCI Certification Case Study


BERLIN, GERMANY (1 December, 2015) allpago has been chosen by TÜV SÜD Management Services GmbH to feature in leading its PCI Certification case study.

Working together with TÜV SÜD Management Services GmbH, allpago achieved Level 1 certification to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Once allpago had determined that Certification was the best approach for the company, after extensive research, it set about the process of evaluating its existing systems and processes against the objectives and requirements of the Standard.

allpago executives in Berlin contracted with TÜV SÜD to conduct the initial certification audit to assess the company’s compliance with the necessary requirements. The compliance audit, which took place in early 2015, involved TÜV SÜD accredited auditors evaluating allpago’s transaction and data security systems, and procedures. The TÜV SÜD auditors were also able to explain how the Standard’s specific requirements applied to allpago’s operations.

Peter Sakal, auditor at TÜV SÜD, said: “It is great to see how the engaged work of allpago, combined with our experience in auditing, resulted in a successful project,”

Brunno Silva, allpago’s Compliance Manager, who worked alongside TÜV SÜD said: “We extensively evaluated multiple PCI qualified security assessors before choosing TÜV SÜD. Of course, the TÜV SÜD brand is known and widely recognised globally, giving our compliance efforts credibility in the marketplace. But they also invested significant time up front to understand our unique challenges and to develop an approach that met our specific requirements.”

TÜV SÜD’s believes that their experience with allpago serves as a clear illustration of the value that can be added by partnering with an experienced and knowledgeable certification organisation. TÜV SÜD is a PCI qualified security assessor and can audit payment service providers, and merchants for compliance with PCI requirements, as well as ISO 27001 and all major management systems standards.

Philipp Bock, allpago’s CEO & Founder, said:

“We are very honoured to have been featured in this leading case study and thank the team at TÜV SÜD Management Services for their support and in what we are trying to achieve here at allpago.”
