An infrastructure you can rely on

A house is only as strong as the foundations it’s built upon. Which is why it’s good to know that the platform on which stands – our technical infrastructure – is absolutely rock solid.

We’re underpinned by the three essential strengths you should always look for in a payment processor: we’re stable, we’re industry-certified and we’re secure…

Stability - inbuilt resilience for complete confidence

System architecture experts have shaped the platform across multiple sites around an N+1 Network Design Architecture. This provides extensive fault tolerance, not only for systems but also for communications, with dual site independence or concurrent multi-site processing possible within seconds. So should the worst happen – whatever that ‘worst’ is – we’ve got it covered.

Key features:

  • Full disaster recovery remote location and an additional replicated data centre
  • Massive processing capability via Tier III data-centre hosted systems
  • Highly scalable infrastructure – systems operate at a maximum of 20% capacity
  • ‘Hot’ deployment – without interruption – of all new hardware when utilisation exceeds just 50% of resources
  • 24/7/365 monitoring by our systems support teams

PCI Certified - Audited at the highest level

The scrutiny we come under at is reassuringly unforgiving… auditing, security assessment, testing, compliance, and certification are all a necessary part of the service we provide. Nothing but the best will do. So that’s what we always do. The best.

Key features:

  • PCI (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard Level 1
  • The platform is audited annually at all sites by both Visa- and MasterCard-approved security assessors
  • networks are scanned quarterly by assessors
  • We complete monthly administration and testing requirements to ensure compliance in all aspects of payments processing
  • As part of a publicly listed FTSE company, is audited regularly by Deloitte

Security - Our obsession, your peace of mind

In our business you can never have too much security. Consequently,’s investment in the latest security systems, measures and software is substantial and ongoing…

  • Cardholder data is subject to multiple algorithm encryption that exceeds required PCI standards
  • All data is stored on dedicated web-inaccessible single-function servers
  • Internally, data is protected by network and physical access controls
  • Even entry for basic site maintenance requires independent authentication by two employees
  • All sites use intrusion detection and prevention systems
  • We apply DDOS (distributed denial of service) mitigation
  • Firewalls are state-of-the-art from CISCO
