Payvision and ControlScan Partner for World Class PCI Validation Service

October 15, 2014         By: Daniel Easley

Payvision and ControlScan have announced a partnership designed to help PSPs and ISOs with Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) compliance faster and more efficiently.

PCI DSS is required for merchants processing and storing payment card information from its customers. It is designed to make sure that the merchants are following best practices in preventing data theft.

Payvision will now be able to offer its clients a simplification of the DSS compliance by taking advantage of its new partner’s technology and processes. Payvision clients will receive access to tools and advice on how to achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance. In light of recent major data breaches at retailers like Home Depot, Target, and now Kmart, a simplified route to security could be quite valuable.

Payvision said in a statement that “as part of our commitment to grow the business of our partners and help them expand internationally by connecting to our secure and innovative global acquiring network, Payvision is pleased to partner with ControlScan and to allow our partners and their merchants to meet mandatory data security and compliance requirements in a smart and efficient way.”

Payvision is a leading global acquiring network, connecting banks, PSPs, ISOs to one global acquiring platform. Payvision is headquartered in Amsterdam, with a presence in more than 40 countries.

ControlScan is an Atlanta based company that offers integrated security and compliance solutions to small and medium sized businesses. They specialize in PCI DSS, HIPAA, and EI3PA compliance; vulnerability detection and risk mitigation; POS, e-commerce and mobile security.
