Irvine, California (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
TrustCommerce, a leading provider of Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) payment solutions, today announced it is one of the first to achieve Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 3.0 validation. TrustCommerce is a Level 1 Service Provider.
The PCI DSS version 3.0, released November 2013, is the third major update to the PCI DSS. Reporting guidelines were made available in February 2014; however, existing PCI DSS 2.0 compliant vendors have until January 1, 2015 to move to the new standard. The changes continue to raise the level of best practices that govern the industry.
“Since our inception, TrustCommerce has always been known for adhering to strong security measures. This reputational substance isn’t a marketing tactic, but rather a core element of our offerings, value and culture. We are proud to be one of the early adopters of the PCI DSS v3.0,” said Rob Caulfield, Chief Executive Officer of TrustCommerce. “We promote that we meet or exceed all applicable industry standards and best practices. This is just one characteristic we actively demonstrate as our commitment to payment security and the protection of client data.”
The PCI DSS provides technical and operational requirements, standards, and guidelines for all entities that process, store, or transmit cardholder data, including issuers, providers, acquirers, merchants, and service providers. In consideration of recent breach trends, PCI DSS version 3.0 is intended to place even more emphasis on payment data security. Among many other things, this version has an increased focus on operational standards, security awareness, and training.
"TrustCommerce chose to be assessed against version 3.0 of the PCI DSS almost a full year before required," stated D.J. Vogel, Partner at 403 Labs, a division of Sikich LLP and TrustCommerce's QSA company. "Customers appreciate doing business with proactive companies, especially when it comes to protecting their sensitive data. TrustCommerce voluntarily selecting to be assessed against the updated standard should resonate greatly with both its existing and prospective customers."

Featuring Point-to-Point encryption (P2PE), tokenization, and seamless redirects, TrustCommerce solutions assist partners and clients with reducing PCI DSS scope.
