SSH Communications Security Joins PCI Security Standards Council to Expand Global PCI-DSS Adoption and Ease Compliance
SSH Provides Robust Encryption and End-to-End Communications Security Solutions to Help Organizations Cost-Effectively Protect Cardholder Data
The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity.
As a Participating Organization, SSH Communication Security will now have access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, be able to provide feedback on the standards, and become part of this key growing community. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entity's best protection against data criminals.
"The PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data," said Bob Russo, General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. "By participating in the standards setting process, SSH Communications Security demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal."
"For the past two years we have helped major global financial and retail organizations become PCI DSS compliant," said Arto Vainio, CEO of SSH Communications Security. "Our SSH Tectia Solution enables organizations to quickly and cost-effectively protect cardholder data in transit without modifications to applications, scripts or infrastructure. Our proven expertise in encryption and multi-platform end-to-end security solutions will enable us to make valuable contributions to the Council. We look forward to working with the Council and the retail industry to improve cardholder data security"
