Queue-it is a cloud computing based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. Patent pending.
Software as a service (SaaS, typically pronounced ‘sass’) is a model of software deployment whereby an application is licensed to customers for use as a service on demand via a web browser or web service interface. However, the software is deployed outside the customer’s internal infrastructure in the cloud computing infrastructure.
Cloud computing is defined on Wikipedia.
Amazon Web Services
Our Microsoft based system development platform is based on an Amazon virtual server setup, and Queue-it uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon SimpleDB. This technology has a scalability that enables Queue-it to hold an infinite number of simultaneous users.
Security and data encryption
Queue-it continues to meet the highest standards in the field of security and data encryption with the implementation of McAfee Secure and McAfee PCI Certification Service.
The Queue-it website, the Queue-it GO self service console and end-user queue pages are McAfee Secure and PCI DSS (Data Security Standard) certified. McAfee Secure is the worldwide leader in website security services. McAfee Secure ensures our customers and users do not have to worry about security issues such as intrusion by hackers.
Although Queue-it does not process or store financial transactions (bank cards) in the queue system, we have chosen to comply with the PCI DDS framework anyway to provide the highest standard for our customers and visitors.
PCI DSS ensures that all bankcard details of the consumers are protected at every step of the buying process. Within the PCI DDS framework guarantees a safe purchase process to all card buyers.
Separate and distinct from the mandate to comply with the PCI Data Security Standard is the certification, or validation, of compliance, whereby entities verify and demonstrate their compliance status. It is a fundamental and critical function that identifies and corrects vulnerabilities and protects customers by ensuring that appropriate levels of cardholder information security are maintained.
