Las Vegas, NV (Vocus/PRWEB) February 18, 2011
Maas Global Solutions Corporation (MGS) signed an agreement with Aperia Solutions to act as our PCI Compliance partner, assisting both our merchants and MGS to manage the process of ensuring complete data security through compliance with the Payment Card Industry standards. Aperia Solutions’ will roll out their CompliAssure Compliance Suite in the coming weeks so our merchant customers can scan their own data networks for vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by fraudsters. Once complete, and their scan passes, our merchants will know that their own data handling methods meet PCI requirements when it comes to sensitive payment data they receive from their customers.
“Everyone here at MGS knows that the safe handling of personal payment data is at the foundation of any company who conducts business over the Internet and our customers want to know that their websites and data centers are appropriately protected.” said Troy Maas, CEO of Maas Global Solutions.
CompliAssure Compliance Suite is a simple, yet powerful suite of services that provides Software as a Service (SaaS) access to manage key compliance issues using a custom module for specific PCI compliance requirements. Compliance functions and services, including online help for merchants, should make this process a very simple one for merchants.
“PCI Level 3 and Level 4 Merchants need to know that they are required to complete a “Self Assessment” annually and a “Network Security Scan” on a quarterly basis.” said John Nix, SVP of Business Development for Aperia Networks. He went on to say that “this rule carries stiff penalties for non-compliance so it’s very important that all merchants to are fully aware of their PCI Compliance status.”
