Southfield, MI (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
ANXeBusiness Corp. (ANX), a leading provider of managed security and PCI compliance solutions to the retail industry, announced a unique partnership with PCI University, makers of an innovative, 15-minute approach to helping merchants ramp up their PCI DSS understanding and security. The partnership with PCI University strengthens ANX’s ability to serve as a one-stop provider for merchants that need to first understand their PCI DSS obligations and then need an affordable solution delivering the technology, tools, and support required for PCI DSS compliance.
The new joint site (http://anx.pciuniversity.org/) enables any merchant (even those without technical know-how) to take two immediate steps to improve their PCI DSS understanding and security:
1) Intro to PCI-Q™: Watch an easy-to-understand animated video that helps merchants grasp the basics of PCI DSS and their relationship with the banks and POS companies.
2) PCI-Q Risk Assessment Tool™: An engaging, no-fee self-assessment that determines how vulnerable a merchant is to data security breaches. Using a scoring system (like a credit score), the self-assessment covers the most common mistakes that lead to the vast majority of security breaches.
If the Risk Assessment Tool indicates any areas of deficiency, the merchant can easily rectify by purchasing ANX’s SecurePCI solution. For less than $3 per day, SecurePCI delivers enterprise-grade security technology, web tools, and attentive support to make security and PCI DSS compliance easier.
“PCI University understands how busy merchant owners are and they share our vision and commitment to making PCI DSS compliance easier for them,” said Mark Wayne, Executive Vice President of ANX. “If every merchant spent 15 minutes to watch the video and determine their PCI-Q risk level, there would be a significant decrease in data security breaches.” “ANX is a natural partner for PCI University,” said Charles Hoff, Principal at PCI University and nationally-recognized speaker and litigator on issues involving Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). “When it comes to leading security providers in the market, we have been extremely impressed with ANX’s focus on preventing breaches from happening in the first place.”
