ControlScan Compliance Support Team Named a Finalist in Info Security Products Guide's 2016 Global Excellence Awards

"Best Support Team of the Year" award recognizes contributions to excellence in security support services

2016-GEfinalistATLANTA, Jan. 14, 2016 -  ControlScan, the managed security service provider (MSSP) IT leaders and their organizations rely upon for unified security and compliance,  announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named the ControlScan Compliance Support team a "Best Support Team of the Year" finalist for the 12th Annual 2016 Global Excellence Awards. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

The ControlScan Compliance Support team is a highly trained group of customer service professionals whose sole job is to guide businesses through the process of complying—and verifying that compliance—with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). ControlScan has assisted millions of businesses with this effort, both directly and via its partnerships with merchant service providers and web hosting companies.

“It's very rewarding to receive this recognition from Info Security Products Guide,” said ControlScan CEO Joan Herbig. “The Compliance Support team’s focus on exceptional service is a key differentiator for ControlScan, because providing a positive experience significantly increases the chance of success for the businesses we serve."

Members of the 100-percent-U.S.-based Compliance Support team are regularly evaluated on their ability to provide a high-quality experience. Team members undergo ongoing, detailed training on the PCI DSS compliance validation process and are specifically trained to break down complex topics and technical jargon into easy-to-understand terms. Role playing and side-by-side observation with tenured team members also helps rookies learn how to apply patience and warmth to every call.

Info Security Products Guide will honor 2016 Global Excellence Award winners in San Francisco on February 29, 2016 during the annual awards dinner and presentation. For more information about unified security and compliance with ControlScan visit or call 800-825-3301, ext. 2.
