Terms and definitions in messaging

Multichannel messaging service is based on a variety of telecommunication and Internet technologies. In the description of services, we often use abbreviations that may not always be known to you. Here we have compiled a glossary of terms and definitions used in the industry.

PCIDSS

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard was jointly developed by Visa and MasterCard in 2004, to simplify compliance for merchants and payment processors. The PCI standard has 6 core areas and 12 requirements, covering a broad scope of best practices for perimeter security, data privacy, and layered security.

Any business that deals with sensitive credit card data - whether they're processing, transmitting, or storing it - needs to abide by the PCI standard or risk having their credit card transaction privileges revoked. Messaggio Group is PCIDSS certified for mobile, e-wallet and credit card payments.
