Is Zoho Vault PCI-DSS compliant?

Q: What is PCI-DSS?

A: The acronym PCI-DSS refers to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which is a set of security standards designed and created to ensure that companies that handle credit card information (CCI) maintain a secure environment. These standards apply to companies that accept, store, process, transmit, or otherwise utilize credit card information.
