PCI Compliance Provider ControlScan Introduces Security Consulting Services

ControlScan’s Security Consulting Services are divided into two focus areas.

ATLANTA – The process for achieving and maintaining compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is often complex. ControlScan, the leading provider of PCI compliance solutions specifically designed for small- to mid-sized merchants, is now offering Security Consulting Services to make planning, achieving and maintaining PCI compliance simple and straightforward.

“Our expanded security consulting services bring added confidence that each business we work with is correctly interpreting the PCI DSS and taking the proper actions to achieve and maintain compliance, whether they are service providers, ISOs and acquirers serving Level 4 merchants or merchants themselves,” said Joan Herbig, chief executive officer, ControlScan. “These services reduce overall risk associated with payment card processing within a merchant portfolio or business.”

ControlScan’s Security Consulting Services are divided into two focus areas. The Security Assessment Services ensure solutions are in place and policies and procedures exist in order to satisfy the PCI DSS. The company’s Security Engineering Services provide technical testing and guidance to clients. ControlScan’s Security Consulting Services are supported by a team of Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) and security consultants with more than twenty years experience delivering PCI advisory and remediation services.

“Regardless of how complex the card processing environment or in-depth the desired evaluation, our QSAs and security consultants help service providers, acquirers and merchants gain control of PCI compliance and maintain security vigilance,” continued Herbig.Security Consulting Services join ControlScan’s flagship product offerings – PCI 1-2-3 and PCI Dashboard. PCI 1-2-3 Compliance Solutions provide Level 4 merchants with the necessary tools and support that are often overlooked by firms that focus on meeting larger merchants’ needs to analyze, remediate and validate PCI compliance at an affordable rate. The PCI Dashboard enables ISOs and acquirers to easily view the compliance status of their entire merchant portfolios at a glance. This powerful, on-demand reporting system also provides access to individual merchants’ states of compliance for more comprehensive analysis and can be easily exported for use within any risk management system that ISOs and acquirers might employ.
