USA ePay Bundles No Cost Visa MasterCard Security Scans

Monday 24 January 2005 22:22 CET | News

USA ePay has become the first payment processor to bundle Visa and MasterCard compliance security scanning at no additional cost to its merchants.

In order to help ease the burden of card association security compliance requirements on its customers, USA ePay will sponsor, at no charge, the same annual compliance scanning service that ScanAlert, a qualified scanning vendor, retails for $149. This new service bundle is designed to allow all USA ePay merchants to easily meet the requirements of Visa and MasterCards PCI Security Standard. Security Compliance and Risk Management Made Easy for Merchant Banks: While USA ePays merchants are benefiting from complementary compliance services, merchant banks will be able to easily track the compliance status of their merchant portfolio by logging into ScanAlerts Online Management Portal. Through this interactive portal, the merchant banks compliance officers will be able to view their merchants compliance status and access any necessary Report on Compliance documentation they may need without having to contact the merchant. USA ePay is also making these services available to all acquiring banks at no cost. Availability: The program is available immediately for all USA ePay gateway users. Members of USA ePay must contact USA ePay to obtain a unique enrollment code. For more information on this sponsored service or to become a USA ePay gateway user, please contact USA ePay at 866-USA-EPAY (872-3729) or . Features of ScanAlerts PCI Compliance Service: The ScanAlert program is a complete security auditing system with a breadth of features that far exceed the basic vulnerability scanning requirements of PCI, CISP and SDP which comprise the PCI Security Standards. A comprehensive security tool, it includes: - Access to ScanAlerts web-based Vulnerability Management Portal - Scheduled quarterly automated vulnerability scans - Unlimited on-demand manual scans to re-test systems whenever needed - Detailed instructions to patch all vulnerabilities found during scans - Online tutorials to help understand and prepare security self-assessment forms - Preparation of the Report on Compliance (ROC) documentation for submission to an online merchants acquiring bank
