Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Security Compass is announcing an important update for its SD Elements secure coding platform for web and mobile application developers, which now includes new content to cover the Payment Card Industry Payment Application Data Security Standard (PCI PA-DSS). Now vendors who create payment applications can build in PA-DSS compliance from the start, in addition to the most comprehensive set of software security and privacy requirements available on the market today.
Security Compass’ SD Elements team will be at the PCI Security Standards Council’s North American Community Meeting September 24-26 in Las Vegas.
“This latest update to SD Elements will make it easier for vendors to meet PCI standards while still in the development phase, get their products out to market faster and avoid costly remediation later,” said Rohit Sethi, VP of Security Compass. “It’s part of SD Elements’ larger mission to enable secure coding from the start, which vastly improves the security/privacy of applications.”
SD Elements users can generate on their PA-DSS compliance reports to help prepare for PCI audits. With detailed requirements and corresponding test cases delivered right to application lifecycle management tools like JIRA and Team Foundation Server, payment card applications can now be more secure than ever.
Software developers can build secure PA-DSS compliant web, mobile, and rich client applications in any programming language using SD Elements requirements.
