SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — June 6, 2012
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions for small and midsize businesses, announced today that it will offer online merchants the ability to obtain Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance.
PCI Compliance is a security requirement created by major credit card brands in an attempt to reduce fraud and bring all companies who accept credit cards up to a standard level of security. Online businesses are now able to achieve compliance with SiteLock PCI, a software solution that guides merchants through a very simple online application process, including the completion of the PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and network vulnerability scanning.
SiteLock's PCI program includes a user-friendly, streamlined version of the Self-Assessment Questionnaire; a dynamically created security policy; a remediation plan; and guides for setup on businesses' network environments.
The challenge faced by many small business owners to achieve compliance is the time and complexity of the traditional application process. The SiteLock PCI process is designed specifically to help business owners complete the process in four guided online steps.
"PCI compliance is a natural extension to SiteLock's existing line of website security technology and services," explains Neill Feather, President of SiteLock. "We are well aware of the costly penalties that companies can face when they are found to be out of compliance with PCI regulations, so we want to make it easy for online businesses to manage all of their security solutions in one place for a fraction of the standard price. When companies become compliant, they not only prevent fines, but also provide their customers with trust in their business - which is one of our primary goals at SiteLock."
SiteLock protects small businesses. The rapid acceleration of malware development and malicious attacks on business websites is making this a near epidemic challenge that puts small and midsize companies at the greatest risk for website security threats.
