Assist Cornerstone teams with Fortrex Technologies for Security and Compliance Solutions
Sandy, UT – January 2007 - Assist Cornerstone, the leading provider of cross-channel, real-time enterprise software solutions and Fortrex Technologies, a market leader in providing IT security, operational risk and compliance solutions, announced today that Assist Cornerstone is working toward compliance with the Payment Application Best Practices (PABP) in accordance with Visa USA’s Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP).
The requirements for the PABP are derived from the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS, which can be found at www.pcisecuritystandards.org, details the requirements for PCI compliance (and therefore what a payment application must support to facilitate an application user’s PCI compliance).
Utilizing secure payment applications in a PCI DSS compliant environment minimizes the potential for security breaches and compromises of full magnetic stripe data, card validation codes and values (CAV2, CID, CVC2, CVV2), PINs and PIN blocks. Consequently, deployment of secure payment applications will significantly reduce the potential for brand-damaging fraud.
“By taking a proactive approach to PABP compliance, Assist Cornerstone’s executive management has demonstrated their dedication and commitment to ensuring the privacy of their clients’ data”, says Joshua Lyons Director of Client Services, Sales for Fortrex.
