Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
rackAID, a leading managed service provider, has joined forces with ControlScan, a leading supplier of e-commerce security scanning services, to deliver two new security services. rackAID's Managed PCI and Scan & Fix offerings will help merchants meet requirements established by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
"We've had a growing number of inquiries regarding PCI compliance from our clients. In response, we conducted a study of major approved scanning vendors and selected ControlScan as our partner. ControlScan's easy to use interface, reliability and pricing meld well with our existing on-demand IT management services," said Jeff Huckaby, president, rackAID.
rackAID clients now have two options for meeting PCI compliance. Managed PCI is a pro-active PCI management solution. rackAID will coordinate periodic security scans with ControlScan and automatically correct detected issues. As a subscriber to the Managed PCI program, rackAID clients simply have to secure their web applications and complete the self-assessment questionnaire. Managed PCI is available as an add-on solution to rackAID's popular server management services.
rackAID's Scan & Fix service is targeted to merchants who just require one-time or periodic assistance with their audits. After signing up with ControlScan, clients can request rackAID's assistance only when needed. rackAID will then fix the security issues as a case-based support service.
With these new services, rackAID clients can produce PCI compliance reports and obtain certification seals through the ControlScan security portal. Research shows that web sites displaying certification seals typically see a significant increase in online sales and a decrease in shopping cart abandonment.
These new services further add to rackAID's portfolio of on-demand IT services. Earlier this year, they announced a managed server backup service.
