These measures include industry-standard encryption, physical access security, secured networks and servers, anti-virus protection, vulnerability scans, penetration testing, firewalls, intrusion detections, defense monitoring and other appropriate technology.

Zum Rails complies with all required PCI standards and maintains SOC 2 (Type 2) compliance.
