World-class technology and support services will increase merchants' compliance, reduce risk

ATLANTA, Oct. 14, 2014 -  ControlScan, a leading provider of security and compliance solutions for small and mid-sized businesses, and Amsterdam-based Payvision, an independent global card processor and one of the fastest-growing global acquiring networks in the payments industry, have formally launched a partnership to help payment service providers, independent sales organizations and their merchants efficiently yet thoroughly achieve and maintain cardholder data security as outlined in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The new partnership enables Payvision to leverage ControlScan's trusted processes and technologies, which simplify the PCI compliance process through easy-to-use solutions and merchant-friendly support services. With data security compromises on the rise, it is critical for every player in the payments industry to actively work toward ongoing compliance with the PCI DSS.

"We are pleased to partner with Payvision to deliver technology and services that simplify the data security and PCI compliance process," said Joan Herbig, CEO, ControlScan. "Our partnership will positively impact Payvision's global acquiring network by reducing risk and enhancing their PSP and ISO partners' merchant relationships."

Businesses that process, store or transmit cardholder data are required to comply with the PCI DSS on a continuous basis. The PCI compliance process is designed to ensure that merchants are following basic payment security best practices to reduce credit card fraud and security breach incidents. Through the partnership with ControlScan, Payvision helps simplify this process, by providing PSPs, ISOs and their merchants the advanced tools and expertise to become PCI compliant in a quick and easy way.

"As part of our commitment to grow the business of our partners and help them expand internationally by connecting to our secure and innovative global acquiring network, Payvision is pleased to partner with ControlScan and to allow our partners and their merchants to meet mandatory data security and compliance requirements in a smart and efficient way," said Gijs op de Weegh, COO Payvision.
