BHI SecureConnect, a leading Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), offering the most comprehensive, turn-key solution for network security and PCI compliance, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Lighthouse Software Development.
As an established provider of development services within the payment processing industry, Lighthouse Software has designed and developed a PCI Merchant Management Program to monitor PCI compliance status among its clients. Assisting ISO’s, Acquirers and Processors, the PCI Merchant Management Program develops a streamline process to address the aspects of PCI including validation services such as vulnerability scanning.
With its newly formed partnership, Lighthouse will be utilizing SecureConnect Vulnerability Scanning services for the company’s PCI program. These scans help protect businesses by proactively identifying weaknesses in the network environment, looking for known vulnerabilities and configuration issues that could potentially be exploited by hackers, worms, or viruses. As an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), BHI SecureConnect has been certified by the PCI Security Standards Council to perform the scanning process necessary to validate PCI compliance and adhere to PCI DSS requirements.
Howard Falcon, Partner at Lighthouse Software, believes that the collaboration will offer Lighthouse customers a great source for a more secure service. “PCI has affected everyone pretty drastically,” said Falcon. The quarterly vulnerability scans are necessary to highlight security concerns and effectively minimize the risk of a security breach among merchants.
“It adds so much value to our program; no other company could offer cost-effective solutions that were easy to integrate with our customers,” said Falcon. “BHI SecureConnect is a perfect fit for Lighthouse.”
As Lighthouse and BHI SecureConnect move into the future with this partnership, additional SecureConnect service features may become available as clients see value in the program for themselves and their merchants.
“Another reason we chose BHI SecureConnect is because of the other comprehensive services that our customers may be able use in the future,” said Falcon. “It’s just a good fit working together.”
Understanding the importance of information security to merchants and customers alike, BHI SecureConnect has built solutions that look to address compliance, but also provide security beyond PCI.
