Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
RSD, a leading provider of information governance solutions for the enterprise, today announced that Hudson’s Bay Company selected RSD Enterprise Output Solution (EOS) to address key requirements for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
The PCI standard is intended to help organizations proactively protect customer account data. The PCI DSS is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
"RSD’s EOS software solution has the capabilities needed to support critical PCI requirements of Hudson’s Bay Company” says Scott Reid, General Manager of Technology of Hudson’s Bay Company. “The solution allows Hudson’s Bay to encrypt customer data with high-level encryption, so that the files, even if copied, are unusable outside the RSD environment.”
PCI applies to all organizations or merchants, regardless of size or number of transactions, that accepts, transmits or stores any cardholder data. PCI is designed to prevent hackers and criminals from credit card theft and the subsequent fraudulent use of customer data.
With RSD EOS, once the customer record is encrypted; it will stay encrypted forever on any storage media and can only be accessed unencrypted through EOS services for secure viewing and printing. The encryption/decryption process is transparent to the user.
“We are happy to have been chosen by Hudson’s Bay Company as a partner to address their PCI compliance requirements” said Pierre Van Beneden, RSD CEO. “Using RSD EOS, companies are assured their information assets are stored with the highest level of security and encryption.”
