Boise, ID, July 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Cougar Mountain Software remains PCI compliant with their latest update release for the Denali accounting software product line.
The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC) has issued guidelines for all businesses that store, process and, or transmit credit and, or debit card data to be Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) compliant by July 1, 2010.
To ensure that Denali remains PCI compliant, Cougar Mountain Software has teamed up with Merchant Warehouse, which supplies MerchantWARE® TransPort™, a PA-DSS certified payment processing solution. As a result, MerchantWARE TransPort (MWT) now becomes the embedded solution that allows Denali to meet the mandated PCI software guidelines and remain in compliancy.
MerchantWARE TransPort is a web-based application that works with Denali’s Accounts Receivable, Point of Sale, and Order Entry modules. As the embedded solution, MWT streamlines the entire card processing system, and assumes all of the duties of handling the sensitive payment data. Now, when Denali users swipe customers’ credit/debit cards, the cardholder data is collected, prepared and transmitted directly by MWT via secure Internet communications using SSL to MerchantWARE’s secure payment gateway. The data is then processed outside of Denali and the authorization returned automatically back to the appropriate Denali module.
Additionally Denali now offers competitive merchant account fees and users a simplified way to pre-authorize credit card transactions.
