Controlscan offers the best value for easy-to-use PCI compliant solutions
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 13, 2009
CRE Loaded, a leading open source eCommerce shopping cart software that powers nearly 200,000 online stores worldwide, announced today its partnership with ControlScan, a leading provider of PCI compliance and security solutions, focused exclusively on small- to medium-sized merchants.
"Controlscan offers the best value for easy-to-use PCI compliant solutions," said Greg McGraw, chief executive officer of CRE Loaded's parent, Chain Reaction Ecommerce, Inc. "This is what our customers have been asking for and part of our commitment to delivering PCI ready solutions for our hosted and server-based shopping carts."
CRE Loaded merchants can now receive a free scan from ControlScan which studies a web site from a hacker's point of view to detect any open doors that could lead to a data breach. CRE Loaded's online merchants will also have access to ControlScan's full-service PCI solution, which includes a Self Assessment Questionnaire tool, on-demand vulnerability scanning and access to ControlScan's merchant portal. Merchants can also take advantage of ControlScan's security certification seals, which typically help e-merchants realize an increase in online sales and a decrease in shopping cart abandonment.
The number of identity theft victims has increased to more than 10 million people per year. This statistic is staggering, but PCI Compliance helps prevent this heinous crime, which not only has millions of victims, but costs businesses and consumers millions of dollars per year.
"Consumers need to be wary of ordering anything from a site that does not have the proper security measures in place, including PCI compliance, to ensure that they protect sensitive credit card and personal information," said Joan Herbig, chief executive officer, ControlScan. "CRE Loaded is demonstrating their commitment to Website security by offering ControlScan services."
