Comodo's Painless PCI Compliance Program

by CXOtoday Staff    Jul 11, 2008

Comodo, the certification authority and security company, announced a new information risk and compliance solution called Painless PCI. This program is a free and intuitive web-based wizard that offers customized stepwise guidance of the PCI Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), a key element of the compliance process.

The Painless PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) program was developed for Level 3 and 4 merchants who conduct up to a million annual transactions. With this offer, eMerchants can attain compliance with a personalized guide that will aid them during the often tricky PCI questionnaire and DSS (Data Security Standard).

The needs of smaller merchants are often overlooked when it comes to risk management and compliance solutions, even though they comprise over 90 % of all merchants (Source: Greensheet).

PCI compliance solutions are typically designed for the larger enterprise with the expectation that they will need to be “sized down” for the smaller merchant. This move reverses the business model with a specially designed tool to meet large group merchants needs.

The integrated program delivers PCI compliance expertise on security solutions and processes needed to efficiently achieve compliance. It is delivered within a web-based guide that creates and manages a remediation plan based on each merchant’s individual situation.

It includes Hacker Guardian PCI compliance a web base application guides merchants about the PCI compliance process. This helps eMerchants verify if they are PCI compliant and, if not, how to attain PCI compliance.

“Issues around compliancy and risk mitigation are rapidly becoming more critical for e-businesses to address”, said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect for Comodo.

“Comodo has changed the model of how merchants can be supported in their critical compliancy and risk mitigation needs with our Painless PCI program. As a certification authority, it is important we actively support improving the compliance and security levels within the e-business community. The program makes PCI compliancy achievable and painless for virtually any online business,” added Abdulhayoglu.
