Hotel distribution and internet marketing services firm SynXis has become the first central reservation system provider to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.

The standards were created by major credit card companies to safeguard customer information that could be compromised due to the enormous volume of credit card transactions that take place online.

Service providers must meet stringent security standards when storing, processing and transmitting cardholder data, with network security, data management, application security, personnel and management policies and procedures.

SynXis’ RedX distribution management system has been certified by Visa as meeting the standards.
