MWR InfoSecurity validated as Payment Application Qualified Security Assessor
The company is now able to build on its proven research skills to develop more secure payment processes and validate applications that will support merchant compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Ben Downton, Head of Payment Security at MWR InfoSecurity, said: "We have vast experience in working with software vendors in reporting and resolving serious security vulnerabilities that could affect millions of users. The PA-QSA validation is another step forward for us and a logical progression."
