It's Fast, Easy and Affordable
If you take credit cards in your store or on a website, PCI Compliance is now required by all the major credit card companies like; Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress, and others. It's required because the credit card companies know how vulnerable most websites and card readers are to hackers.
Our own statistics show that over 80% of all websites, and a high number of card readers, have security holes or vulnerabilities leaving them WIDE OPEN to attack.
The merchant bank that sent you here and your shoppers depend on you to protect their card data.
Don't wait until you get hacked and have recover lost time and funds. Don't wait until you get fined by the PCI Council and eventually lose your business.

PCI Compliance Made Easy?
PCI Compliance can be complicated, frustrating, and extremely boring. Trust Guard simplifies the process and makes compliance easy with our SAQ (Self Assessment Questionnaire) wizard. It's still boring, but the good news is, we can have your first scan going in 10-20 minutes. Yes, that fast!
So, in an effort to help you keep your sanity, I've put together the following information for every online business owner that's been told that they need PCI Scanning to make their website compliant, but don't ever get a straight answer as to what it is, why they need it, what to do about it, or how to get it. My goal here is to simplify PCI for you so that you can make a clear, educated decision and weigh your options on your terms. You won't find any other resource like this online, so be sure to bookmark it so you can easily access it again. I should also mention that while we go to great lengths to provide you with as accurate information as possible, we don't make the rules, laws and/or regulations that govern PCI, and the information below may change at any time. So, if your bank or acquirer (that's one of those ambiguous words I'll define for you below) tell you something different than what is stated below, we recommend you follow their instructions. This document is for information purposes only. For the official 'migraine-inducing' documentation, go to www.pcisecuritystandards.org.
Okay, here we go... First the basics...
PCI stands for Payment Card Industry. The official name is the PCI Security Standards Council (or PCI SSC but most people usually just say PCI or PCI Council). It is an organization that was founded by the five major credit card companies, (American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, and Visa) in order to create a uniform set of security standards for companies to follow when processing credit card transactions. Until the PCI Council was organized, each of these companies had their own standards that were similar to each other but not uniform, which created a lot of problems.
I'm a Level 4 Merchant and I heard that PCI Scanning was optional, is that right?
No. Here's what Bank of America states on their website... Effective October 1, 2008: PCI Level 4 merchants using third-party software are required to either use PA-DSS-validated payment applications or meet PCI-DSS compliance requirements in order to board as a new merchant with Bank of America.
What it really boils down to is your acquirer's (your merchant bank's) specific requirements, as each acquirers requirements are different. Your acquirer has a lot of influence on what you need to provide as far as PCI DSS compliance. If you are concerned about your liability or your responsibility as a merchant, contact your acquirer and ask them what they want from you in order for you to meet their requirements.
In my opinion, the true value of PCI compliance certification really boils down to two things; 1. Your peace of mind and 2. Your customers perception of your website's security. When your customers perceive that your website has advanced security measures in place to protect them, they have much more confidence and trust in your website, and are more likely to buy from you, which in turn increases your ROI. In nearly every case, the return is far more than it ever costs for the service. Click to see your ROI with our scanning and Trust Seals.
Well, I hope this information has helped you see PCI Scanning and compliance from a new, fresh perspective, and that you'll be able to make a better, more educated decision when it comes to protecting your website. Here's to your online success!
