SecurityMetrics Assurance Empowers Businesses to Operate Without Fear of Compromise
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — To combat the rise of financial debilitation by breach compromise fees, SecurityMetrics released SecurityMetrics Assurance, a customized merchant liability reduction program that provides businesses the confidence to meet financial penalties if compromised. The product includes payment card data discovery software, breach coverage, data protection policy, and security consulting.
In addition to unlimited use of PANscan®, a software that allows users to search a business network for unencrypted card data, SecurityMetrics Assurance also provides retroactive coverage up to $100,000 per merchant identification number (MID). Breach coverage may be used for costs associated with fines, notifications, forensic investigation, payment card replacement fees, regulatory fines, and penalties related to PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), GLBA (Gramm Leach Bliley Act) and more. The program also includes one hour of free consulting with a security specialist and a professionally written security policy to help companies implement secure card processing and handling practices.
“80% of small businesses that experience a data breach go bankrupt or have severe financial difficulties within two years(1),” said SecurityMetrics CEO Brad Caldwell. “Our goal is to protect and enable businesses with the option to reduce their own risk and liability so they can stop worrying about potential breaches and get back to nurturing their business.”
