Sage Hospitality Group Chooses VENZA to Maximize Data Protection and PCI DSS Compliance

Sage Hospitality Group has solidified its already-robust commitment to data protection and compliance by selecting VENZA to provide new, expert-driven assistance in meeting PCI DSS cardholder information security standards.

Sage Hospitality maintains a portfolio of nearly 60 hotels across the United States. Managing an array of independent, soft-branded and branded hotels from coast-to-coast, Sage Hospitality is invested in providing unique and exciting customer experiences, while maintaining a core foundation of excellent service across its properties. As such, data protection and regulatory compliance have always been central to the company’s business approach.

“Every customer deserves the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their hotel will treat their personal information safely and securely,” said Joel Boymel, Vice President of IT, Infrastructure, and Security at Sage Hospitality. “We insist on maintaining the highest security standards, which is why we chose VENZA to elevate our process for meeting PCI DSS standards. VENZA’s hotel expertise and deep experience makes them an excellent partner for our business.”

VENZA will be assisting Sage Hospitality in ensuring that all aspects of its cardholder data environment adhere to the most rigorous data protection requirements. For nearly two decades, the PCI DSS has been the gold standard for information security. Companies that meet its requirements are confirmed as following best practices for consumer protection.

“Consumer confidence in data security is increasingly important and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Sage Hospitality to bolster their compliance process,” said Juli Barter, Vice President of Sales at VENZA. “Today’s announcement demonstrates Sage’s commitment to an industry-leading customer experience and VENZA is extremely pleased to have been able to find a tailored program to fit their needs.”
