Thursday 13 January 2005 04:40 CET | News

Peppercoin Small Transaction Suite is the first small payments solution to receive Visa CISP and MasterCard SDP certification and validate compliance with the data security programs of the major credit card associations.

To validate compliance, Peppercoin leveraged Ambirons Multi-Card Compliance Program (MCCP), a proprietary assessment process that aggregates all credit card data security standards. Peppercoin demonstrated compliance with the data security standards set forth by all the major credit card associations, including: -- Visa Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) -- Visa Account Information Security (AIS) -- MasterCard Site Data Protection (SDP) -- American Express Data Security Operating Policy (DSOP) -- Discover Information Security and Compliance (DISC) With the business model flexibility offered by Peppercoins Small Transaction Suite, merchants will increase revenue and profits via small payments in the digital, mobile and physical point-of-sale markets. As a result, Peppercoin will drive significant additional volume over the existing payments network. Ambiron Vital Signs, a vulnerability and compliance management system designed to meet the specific information security requirements of businesses that store, process and/or transmit credit card data, will monitor Peppercoins systems to help maintain compliance. The data security programs of the card associations were recently aligned into the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards. Through Ambirons MCCP, Peppercoin has validated compliance with the PCI Data Security Standards.
