ProPay® Partners with ControlScan® to Increase Merchants' Payment Security, Compliance

PCI Compliance partnership reduces complexity and stimulates secure behavior

ATLANTA, July 23, 2014 – ControlScan® announced today that ProPay®, a TSYS® company, has partnered with the payment security and compliance solution provider to execute a comprehensive PCI program. The new partnership gives small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) a simple, easy-to-adopt solution that helps them navigate the maze of understanding and complying with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

PCI compliance can be a daunting task for any merchant, but it can be especially frustrating for SMBs with limited budgets and IT resources. ControlScan's payments industry studies have found that small business owners want to protect customers' credit card information, yet they don't have access to the information and tools that stimulate secure behavior.

Under their new partnership, ControlScan and ProPay will deliver the following:

  • A PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) that includes step-by-step instructions;
  • A thorough scan of the merchant's network, if applicable;
  • Reporting and attestation that the merchant is compliant; and
  • Breach Protection Program.

"ProPay is well positioned to help eliminate friction in the way its merchants make payments, receive payments and secure payments," said Joan Herbig, CEO, ControlScan. "ControlScan's payment security and compliance solutions align well with the ProPay business model, because they adapt to fit individual merchant scenarios."

"ProPay is pleased to partner with ControlScan to provide compliance solutions to our merchants and partners," said Greg Pesci, President of ProPay. "For years we've been helping our customers achieve compliance with our ProtectPay solution. Our partnership with ControlScan will provide additional tools that will simplify and guide our merchants through the compliance process so they can focus more energy on their business."
