RedSiren, has successfully completed the MasterCard Site Data Protection(SDP) compliance testing process. As an SDP compliant vendor, RedSiren will help online merchants evaluate the security of their networks and systems that process MasterCard account data, and achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.

RedSiren has achieved compliance status by proving their ability to detect, identify and report vulnerabilities common to network architectures and configurations. These vulnerabilities, if not patched, could potentially lead to an unauthorized intrusion. By proactively identifying and providing the opportunity to remedy such vulnerabilities, merchants and service providers can reduce risk of intrusion and data compromise. The SDP Compliance Testing program is an expansion of MasterCards Site Data Protection Program(TM), a comprehensive, proactive and cost-effective sets of global e-commerce and financial security services designed to help protect the Internet facing networks of its customer financial institutions, online merchants and other payment processors holding MasterCard account information. The Vendor Compliance Program requires a two-step process. The first step is to complete an online application form, which can be found at the SDP Web site. The application provides MasterCard with an overview of the applying organization, along with a detailed assertion by the security vendor that their solution is compliant with or exceeds the requirements set forth. After applying for compliance testing, the second step is for vendors to undergo a rigorous evaluation cycle that spans across a wide range of network devices, and operating systems -- an environment controlled and managed by MasterCard.
