SecurityMetrics Helps Solution Providers Hurdle P2PE Implementation
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — In preparation to help service providers expand their product offering and securely validate end-to-end solutions through consulting, assessment, remediation, and support, SecurityMetrics, global provider of payment data security and compliance solutions, today announced its certification as a Point-to-Point Encryption Qualified Security Assessor (P2PE QSA). Not only did SecurityMetrics successfully meet all Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) requirements to perform P2PE solution audits, such as competence in cryptographic algorithms and hardware security module operations, but the company also aids service providers to weigh positive and negative P2PE implementation aspects through consulting.
As a QSA and P2PE implementation consultant, SecurityMetrics security and encryption experts biennially validate:
- Device management, security, and inventory control
- Third party application installation
- Encryption and decryption environments
- Device administration and PCI documentation
- Secure cryptographic key operations
“P2PE solutions are the logical next step for solution providers who wish to meet end-to-end customer demands, help merchants easily reach PCI DSS compliance requirements, and cut costs to advance overall security; but over 90% of solutions aren’t ready,” said SecurityMetrics Director of Security Assessment, Gary Glover. “Now SecurityMetrics can assist a service provider to securely implement and validate a complete point-to-point payment encryption solution.”
In addition to its P2PE QSA certification, SecurityMetrics also holds QSA (Qualified Security Assessor), ASV (Approved Scanning Vendor), PA-QSA (Payment Application Qualified Security Assessor), and PFI (PCI Forensic Investigator) security qualifications.
