With highly publicized data breaches trending up, business owners need to take a much closer look at credit card security and PCI-DSS compliance.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Web hosting company ITX Design announced on Tuesday it has launched a new service that simplifies the compliance process for e-commerce vendors.
The new service is a fantastic addition for small business owners, as well as hosting companies who can offer it to clients. ITX Design is implementing this program because inevitably, it gives end users more confidence that their credit card information is safe.
With ITX Design's new compliance service, online merchants can access and log customer credit card information from any web page, while streamlining the PCI-DSS compliance process to just a few simple steps.
PCI-DSS is a security standard for companies that manage cardholder information and designed to reduce the risk of credit card fraud. Compliance validation is typically conducted by a certified security assessor for organizations handling large volumes of transactions, or by a self-assessment questionnaire for companies handling fewer. Compliance validation is required once a year.
The service being provided by ITX Design uses a solution where merchants are able to securely store customer credit card information into their own data vaults. The business owner can store information easily on any computer, which can never be decrypted outside of the system, so even if it ends up in the wrong hands, the codes can't be used to breach genuine credit card data.
“With highly publicized data breaches trending up, business owners need to take a much closer look at credit card security and PCI-DSS compliance,” said Paul Schoolfield, CEO of ITX Design. “Whether a vendor is new to e-commerce, or has concerns about their current PCI-DSS compliance status, handling it alone exposes their company to significant risk. At ITX Design, we handle every facet of the compliance process.”
ITX Design uses the most current technology which can be embedded into any application, capturing credit card and card verification values or code fields and leaving the rest of the fields on the merchant’s website undisturbed.
ITX Design has integrated this system to accommodate all major payment gateways, including Paypal Payflow Pro, Authorize.net, iPay and others. The service is offered with complete customization, so vendors can design their own templates. The experienced technicians at ITX Design assist clients to match the credit card fields to the merchant’s design template, which ultimately builds the ideal set-up for each scenario.
