Share Article

ControlCase (http://www.controlcase.com), an innovator of compliance software and services, announced today that the Company has been selected to participate in Virginia's Accessing International Markets (AIM) program. The program, launched in December 2005 by the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP), aligns Virginia companies with international opportunities to explore common interests in new markets. As part of the program, ControlCase recently traveled to Japan to meet with local companies to explore partnering opportunities around the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).

We are already active in several international markets and expect the AIM sponsored meetings in Japan to have a substantial impact on our ability to deliver high value software and services in that region

    The PCI Security Standards Council, founded by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB, requires that every participant in the credit card transaction process including merchants, payment processors, point-of-sale vendors and financial institutions implement proper safeguards to secure sensitive cardholder information. ControlCase is an authorized PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) in the North America and Asia Pacific regions.

"The AIM program supports the development of international business opportunities by connecting companies with the practical tools needed for success," said Elizabeth Morgan, AIM Program Manager. "AIM capital, public and private sector resources are used to develop and implement a Market Access Plan (MAP) that helps companies market and sell abroad. VEDP looks forward to supporting ControlCase as they leverage their status as a PCI QSA in countries like Japan."

"We are already active in several international markets and expect the AIM sponsored meetings in Japan to have a substantial impact on our ability to deliver high value software and services in that region," said Mark Mercer, CEO of ControlCase. "We are excited about working with AIM to expand our global presence as companies around the world are required to comply with PCI."
