Ongoing Operations LLC is accommodating growth by adding a fourth location by leasing space from PSCU Financial Services in Arizona, the CUSO said.
The five-year lease for space in the Phoenix center will provide PCI-compliant protection of cardholder information and joins Ongoing Operations' three other data centers in Oregon, Colorado and its home state of Maryland.
PSCU Financial Services is one of the founding partners of Ongoing Operations, which now provides backup services to more than 100 credit unions.
Visa and MasterCard issuers are required to be PCI DSS compliant and credit unions also must ensure that any data processor or other party that interacts with sensitive member data also is PCI DSS compliant.
Ongoing Operations was formed by a group that included seven Mid-Atlantic credit unions in Hagerstown, Md., in March 2005.
