ControlScan expands to EMEA with Foregenix Alliance

ControlScan expands to EMEA

Specialist Payment Card Industry (PCI) security service providers ControlScan and Foregenix have formed a strategic alliance to deliver technology solutions to acquiring banks and merchant service providers working with SMBs in EMEA.

ControlScan is recognised in the US for helping SMBs complete their obligations of the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS). London-based Foregenix conducts a variety of PCI and security-related assessments throughout the EMEA region. Both organisations are relied upon by acquiring banks and merchant service providers to reduce their associated risk in working with SMB merchants. The two will collaborate to provide technologies and services that increase SMBs’ awareness and implementation of information security practices. Foregenix will extend ControlScan’s PCI 1-2-3 and CRE solutions to acquiring banks and service providers throughout the EMEA region, helping the merchants they serve validate compliance with vulnerability scanning, security awareness training and more.

Benj Hosack, director at Foregenix said: “Our alliance with ControlScan enables us to offer combined technologies and services that have proven effective in strengthening these merchants’ security posture.”

“The strategic alliance between ControlScan and Foregenix represents a combination of payment security expertise, delivered on an international scale,” said Joan Herbig, CEO of ControlScan. “Data thieves don’t operate on a localized basis and neither should the effort to stop them.”
