RENO, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conformance Technologies, a fast-growing provider of operating systems, education systems and expertise used in managing business compliance requirements, today announced that Base Commerce has selected its PCI ToolKit® solution for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) merchant portfolio compliance validation. Base Commerce merchants will also have access to Conformance Technologies’ Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit™, which provides cost-effective and easy-to-use penetration testing and primary account number (PAN) scanning services that fully meet tough PCI DSS requirements established last year.
“Choosing Conformance Technologies for PCI compliance validation, penetration testing and PAN scanning was an easy decision,” said Brian Bonfiglio, president and chief executive officer for Base Commerce. “These solutions make achieving and maintaining compliance quick, easy and affordable for our merchant customers, while creating a path for real revenue generation," added Bonfiglio.
“Base Commerce is a terrific business partner and customer,” said Darrel Anderson, president of Conformance Technologies. “Their clients were asking for the best and most comprehensive toolkit solution set to protect their businesses,” added Anderson. “And with affordable pricing, especially for penetration testing and PAN scanning at a fraction of the cost security assessment firms demand, they’ve got a winning combination their merchants will certainly appreciate,” continued Anderson.
The patented PCI ToolKit was the first solution to fully conform with PCI DSS version 3.2 requirements, tackling the complexity head-on for merchant acquirers, independent sales organizations and their merchant customers. Unlike competing offers that simply copy the PCI Security Standards Council Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs) and present them online verbatim, PCI ToolKit translates complicated PCI rules, questions and forms into a merchant security experience that is simple, accurate and comprehensive. Visual wizard technology makes compliance validation fast and easy for small business owners, often reducing the number of attestation questions by 50 percent. Plus, intelligent field population capabilities yield greater merchant response accuracy and higher completion rates. PCI ToolKit is the only compliance validation solution that provides ready-made policies and an education portal for employee training and testing, as well as a PCI activity calendar, free as part of its core functionality. Interactive multimedia assistance, plus email and client contact center for validation and related support, also come standard.
The Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit™ provides easy-to-use, comprehensive vulnerability scanning, penetration testing and PAN scanning services with the same quality and effort as security assessment firms, but at 80 to 90 percent less cost. IP address input initiates test engine and security engineer interrogation. Upon completion, comprehensive status reporting communicates areas of vulnerability, with recommended remediation activities provided. The Cyber Attack Readiness ToolKit is an on-demand service with no upfront expense. System vulnerabilities are identified nearly 100 percent of the time, and over 90 percent of all examinations detect unsecured credit card data.
