Card processor and Global Acquiring network Payvision announced today that it has teamed up with the security company ControlScan to help clients meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance requirements.
All businesses that process, store and facilitate the transfer of cardholder data are subject to regulations by the PCI. These rules are designed to protect companies and their clients from credit card fraud and, in the wake of a number of high profile data security breaches, compliance with the PCI’s Data Security Standard (DSS) is seen as increasingly important by many in the industry.
Payvision and ControlScan say that their partnership will support PSPs, ISOs and their merchants in using processes and technology that they already have in place to simplify security obligations.
“As part of our commitment to grow the business of our partners and help them expand internationally by connecting to our secure and innovative global acquiring network, Payvision is pleased to partner with ControlScan and to allow our partners and their merchants to meet mandatory data security and compliance requirements in a smart and efficient way“, said Payvision’s COO, Gijs op de Weegh.
“We are pleased to partner with Payvision to deliver technology and services that simplify the data security and PCI compliance process,” added Joan Herbig, CEO of ControlScan.
