Simplifying PCI Compliance for Multi-site Retailers
The ability to accept credit and debit cards is fundamental to a retailer’s business. And achieving compliance with the Payment Card Industry‘s Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Program is a prerequisite and ongoing condition to that ability. Failure to comply may result in fines, restrictions, and ultimately, the permanent revocation of card acceptance privileges. Unfortunately, compliance can be complicated, and internal corporate IT staff are already overworked just keeping pace with day-to-day business demands. That’s why more and more retailers are turning to Spacenet’s PCI AccelTM to simplify PCI compliance at the franchise/store-level.
Using Spacenet PCI AccelTM, retailers can painlessly roll-out a PCI compliance program enterprise-wide. We work with you to determine the PCI-specific SAQs (Self-Assessment Questionnaires) required and pre-fill the questionnaires for individual stores to review, complete, and submit. All these activities are performed via a simple web-based portal, significantly reducing the time and effort needed to complete the PCI SAQ
Spacenet also integrates a PCI-certified Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) into the process to scan customer devices and produce PCI-compliant reports. And unlike other comparable services which merely perform scans and report problems, Spacenet fixes any vulnerabilities on Spacenet managed devices. This remediation is standard with the PCI AccelTM service, significantly reducing the cost and complexities of achieving compliance.
Greater Peace of Mind
What’s more, using Spacenet’s portal dashboard, you can view reports and track the progress of the compliance program in real-time, and every store in your enterprise receives PCI training materials and 24/7 helpdesk support through Spacenet’s Network Operations Center.
