San Mateo, CA, December 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Digital Resources Group (DRG), a leading provider of data security and compliance solutions, today announced an alliance with Payment Processing, Inc. (PPI), the industry leader for integrated payments, to offer the PayPros PCI Compliance Program for Businesses, a comprehensive set of security services to validate Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance for businesses. The program includes a unique breach reimbursement guarantee covering forensic investigation, fines and card replacement costs up to $150,000.
“Most businesses are aware of the PCI mandates, but many are unsure of what action to take,” said Chuck Riegel, PPI's executive vice president. “This service from PPI and DRG offers a quick and easily way to validate compliance without becoming PCI experts and, concurrently, gain some protection against the cost of breaches.”
PayPros PCI Compliance Overview
For businesses using integrated applications through the PPI PayMover Hosted Payment Service, the program includes the ability to perform unlimited scans and an online Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). DRG’s SecureScan product allows for scanning of all filtering devices (such as firewalls or external routers), web servers, application servers, Domain Name Servers, mail servers, Virtual Hosts, and wireless access points in wireless LANS. SecureScan pinpoints card data security vulnerabilities, provides guidance on correction and communicates to the card brands that the system meets compliance requirements.
For businesses using Pin Transaction Security certified terminals, the program provides a TurboPCI compliance workbook and CD, or an online SAQ portal solution.
Both services include access to live phone and email support from DRG.
PayPros PCI Breach Reimbursement Guarantee
Under the terms of the PayPros PCI Breach Reimbursement Guarantee, businesses are eligible for reimbursement up to $150,000 for forensic investigations, fines and card reissuance costs resulting from a card data breach. The guarantee is considered in-force for businesses using PTS Certified terminals or the PPI PayMover Hosted Payment Service, and are compliant at time of breach.
"We are excited to be working with PPI to help businesses prove that they've taken the necessary precautions to protect their customers’ confidential data,” said Jim Cowing, Managing Director and Lead QSA of DRG. “The PayPros PCI Compliance Program fills a much needed gap for businesses seeking easy and affordable solutions as they are challenged to keep pace with evolving threats and more stringent PCI data security requirements.”
