Get your software or encryption technology service validated and listed by PCI.
Do you want to seal off your software, applications, and/or technology components from attackers, all while achieving a PCI validation and listing on the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) website? Then you’ve come to the right place!
Our council-trained and validated assessors evaluate the effectiveness of implementing PCI controls and processes for a variety of business entities:
- P2PE solution providers and components that manage encryption devices or keys
- Organizations that process PIN data or perform key management
- Application developers and their payment software
How does validation differ from compliance?
There are numerous technologies that can support the secure and compliant processing of payment card transactions. The PCI SSC has established programs and guidance for authorized assessor companies to review certain technologies, such as encryption solutions or software applications, and have these reports reviewed—or “validated”—by the PCI SSC itself.
The biggest difference between a PCI compliance assessment, such as PCI DSS, and a PCI validation is that validated technologies and vendors can also appear on a searchable list on the PCI website (with the exception of PIN processors, which are listed on Visa’s website).
With a validation and listing, your current and future clients know that your service offering meets the highest standard of payment security, and that by using your product they will be able to achieve their own PCI compliance much more quickly and easily.
