Triversity Incorporate - PCI - Data Security Standards into its Retail Solutions

Thursday 21 April 2005 10:35 CET | News

Triversity is taking the lead among retail software vendors by incorporating PCI requirements into its customer-centric retail solutions.

The PCI standard, adopted in December 2004, is an alignment of Visas Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP), MasterCards Site Data Protection (SDP), and Discovers Information Security and Compliance (DISC). The basic principles of PCI include implementing firewalls, keeping security patches up to date, protecting stored card/cardholder data, encrypting data across a public network, advanced password management, comprehensive audit trails, and more. Data encryption provides a major safeguard in protecting customer information. Today, all of Triversitys leading customer-centric solutions incorporate the PCI requirement of data encryption. With this feature, retailers can protect their cardholder data even if their systems are breached by unauthorized individuals. In addition to data encryption, Triversity is taking steps to further protect customer data. For example, in Transactionware GM version 9.0 and FraudWatch, new software features include audit trails when data is accessed, advanced password management, masking of sensitive data when displayed, and restriction of information on a need-to-know basis, among others. These features as well as others will be added to the entire suite of solutions. Today, these solutions incorporate the necessary software functionality to help retailers be certified as PCI-compliant. The solutions are the first in their categories to incorporate the necessary software functionality to help retailers who are adopting the necessary practices and procedures to comply with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.
