LaGarde Inc., developer of online shopping carts and back-end e-commerce platforms, is rolling out an end-to-end e-commerce solution that will be compliant with Visa’s Cardholder Information Security Program. CISP is an initiative that requires merchants and related payments processing companies to take specific measures to secure customer data. Industry analysts say it is the first totally CISP-compliant system.

Central to the offering is LaGarde’s Storefront 6 platform, which was introduced in May and incorporates Triple DES (digital encryption standard) to protect data.

Bob LaGarde, president and CEO, says customers who use his firm as a hosting service, and therefore use ClearCommerce as its backend payments processor, will automatically be CISP compliant. Other customers who have Storefront 6 will have CISP capabilities, but may need additional components to be sure they are fully CISP compliant, especially those retailers that store their own data.

LaGarde’s hosting service stores customer data with ClearCommerce, which has been certified. LaGarde says about 40% of his 50,000 merchant customers use his firm’s hosting services. He hopes to have the service certified under MasterCard’s Site Data Protection program, similar to CISP, in the near future.
