Sunera Streamlines Pricing for PCI QSA & ASV Services

Sunera has developed an online pricing engine which obtains the necessary details from merchants and service providers to prepare an accurate price quote for PCI related services.

Tampa, FL, July 21, 2010 --( Sunera (, a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), is now providing online price quotations for several of its PCI compliance service offerings including: ASV Scanning; Internal and External Penetration Testing; QSA Onsite Assessments/Report On Compliance (ROC); and, PCI Gap Assessments. Two separate online forms have been created and placed on Sunera’s website located at:

- Merchants -
- Service Providers -

In addition to collecting basic contact information and details about the PCI services in which a prospective client is interested, the respective forms ask a series of questions that are used by Sunera QSA professionals to obtain a description of the company’s cardholder data environment. Based on the information submitted, a price quote for the PCI service offering(s) selected will be provided via email within 2-3 business days. Sunera developed these forms to streamline the price estimation process as well as provide more accurate quotes.

“We wanted to give those Merchants and Service Providers looking to become PCI Compliant a quick and easy way to obtain an estimate of cost for the PCI Services that Sunera provides. The more detailed the information provided to us on the form, the more accurate the quote,” said Christie Verscharen, Sunera’s Director of PCI Services.

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) requires the use of PCI Qualified Security Assessors to perform PCI on-site security audits using the PCI Security Audit Procedures to assess compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard. Sunera has been both a PCI QSA and an ASV since 2006 and has provided PCI-related services to all levels of merchants and service providers.
