New referral partnership helps online businesses secure sensitive ecommerce data in the cloud

ATLANTA, Aug. 15, 2013 − Payment security and compliance solution provider ControlScan and cloud-based hosting service provider eApps Hosting have formed a partnership that enables small and mid-sized online businesses to quickly and easily achieve and maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Through the new referral partnership, eApps customers can now take full advantage of the ControlScan PCI 1-2-3 compliance solution.

ControlScan PCI 1-2-3 features a suite of tools and support to help small business owners cost-effectively analyze, remediate and validate PCI compliance, including step-by-step Self-Assessment Questionnaire assistance, network vulnerability scans, custom security policies, security awareness training and more. PCI 1-2-3 is delivered to eApps customers as an on-demand subscription service, enabling them to take advantage of the services according to their unique business processes and agreement timeframes.

"The merchants we serve build their business on the ability to collect online payments, but once they've established this process, they shouldn't become bogged down by the associated compliance standards," said Barry Deutsch, Vice President, eApps Hosting. "By giving our hosted service customers direct access to the experts at ControlScan, we offer a one-stop, no-nonsense solution to secure online hosting and PCI compliance validation."

"PCI compliance can be a real headache for online sellers, but they know that taking the proper steps to secure their payment data is critical to their business's health," said Greg Leos, vice president of North American sales, ControlScan. "Our partnership with eApps streamlines the data security and compliance process so that smaller online business owners don't have to spend a large amount of time and money jumping through hoops to protect themselves and their customers from cybercriminals."
