Redwood Shores, CA – January 17, 2012. Incapsula, a cloud-based website security and performance service and the only PCI certified cloud WAF & CDN for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced new Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance capabilities to further simplify PCI audits.
“Complying with PCI DSS Requirement 6.6 is critical to both website owners and customers,” said Gur Shatz, Incapsula Co-Founder and CEO. “The only way to surely protect your business from liability and non-compliance fines, and in doing so, protect your customers from credit card theft is with a PCI certified WAF solution. We are proud that Incapsula is the first and only PCI-certified Cloud WAF service for SMB’s.”
Incapsula’s PCI offering now allows ecommerce sites to seamlessly audit and prove their compliance in a single click via Incapsula’s PCI dashboard. The PCI offering is available direct to merchants and through both PCI and ecommerce service providers.
“Compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard is required for all businesses that process payment cards online,” said Dr. Suzanne Miller, senior partner at the Compliance and Audit Group which is a Qualified Security Assessor Company trained and certified by the PCI Security Standards Council. “Failure to comply with all requirements can result in ongoing escalating fines for eCommerce businesses. Additionally, the liability associated with payment card information being compromised from a website breach can impact the viability of the company. Incapsula’s latest offering is a long overdue step in helping small and medium size eCommerce sites reduce their PCI gaps and increase their security of payment card information.”
Up to this point, many businesses have been slow to adopt PCI compliant security measures. A recent Gartner survey finds 18-percent of IT managers surveyed admit to still not being PCI compliant, despite the risks. However, Incapsula is turning PCI compliance into a business accelerator. With the added security and compliance, Incapsula also improves website performance helping it run at top speed. With just a five-minute setup required, businesses can keep their websites safe, fast and PCI compliant at an affordable cost.
The new PCI features are available to Business and Enterprise customers from www.Incapsula.com and selected security and hosting service providers.
