It demonstrates OutSystems ongoing commitment with globally-recognized best practices to make cloud services as safe and secure as the rest of the data included in our certified information management system.

PCI Data Security Standard SAQ D Service Provider

PCI DSS SAQ D was developed to provide a streamlined set of requirements for merchants and service providers that process cardholder data and online payments, allowing them to validate their compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) in a comprehensive yet efficient manner.

OutSystems PCI DSS SAQ D Attestation of Compliance, issued by a PCI Qualified Security Assessor, demonstrates to our customers, the card brands, and other relevant parties that OutSystems as a service provider has taken the appropriate security measures to protect cardholder data and ensure a secure environment is consistently maintained throughout all payment processing operations, in use-cases where the merchant's cardholder data functions are outsourced to validated third parties.

TISAX Assessments

The ENX Association supports TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) on behalf of VDA, the common acceptance of Information Security Assessments in the automotive industry. The TISAX Assessments are conducted by audit providers that demonstrate their qualification at regular intervals. TISAX and TISAX results are not intended for the general public.

For OutSystems, confidentiality, availability and integrity of information have great value. We have taken extensive measures on protection of sensitive information. Therefore, we follow the question catalogue of information security of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA ISA). The Assessment (Assessment-ID AZ2NY1-1) was conducted by an independent TISAX audit provider, covering our OutSystems Cloud Sentry offer (Scope-ID SLF9L6). The result is available through the ENX Portal.
