NEW YORKDatadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced that it has achieved PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance for its Log Management and Application Performance Management (APM) products.

PCI compliance is a set of key security standards that businesses must adhere to when accepting, transmitting, processing and storing credit, debit, ATM or POS card data in order to secure and protect information provided by cardholders. Being PCI compliant helps businesses provide a more secure experience for end users and improve their brand reputation and loyalty and also helps the business avoid any fines or penalties associated with being non-compliant. By achieving PCI compliance, businesses can now fully leverage Datadog’s Log Management and APM products in the parts of their applications requiring compliance to process and store payment and transaction data.

“Achieving PCI compliance enables us to work with more organizations and deliver increased value to them,” said Emilio Escobar, CISO at Datadog. “We can now extend unified observability to customers in parts of their applications that handle credit card data. This will help them analyze their logs and get full visibility into all their applications.”

PCI compliance further strengthens the privacy and security certifications of the Datadog platform, adding to existing certifications for CSA STAR, AICPA SOC, FedRAMP Moderate Impact authorization and ISO 27001.
