London, United Kingdom, 2011/02/23 - Trustwave, a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions, has been selected as a finalist by the European Card Acquiring Forum (ECAF) for TrustKeeper, Trustwave's innovative security and compliance web portal.
TrustKeeper is one of only two technologies to make the award short list.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is the payment card industry security requirement for entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and has been endorsed by all the major card brands - Visa, MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB.
TrustKeeper facilitates PCI DSS compliance validation in an easy and efficient manner for European merchants or acquirers, ISOs and processors with large merchant population. Trustwave offers the only PCI Wizard that simplifies the complex PCI DSS compliance process. Additionally, TrustKeeper Agent ensures merchants aren't storing unencrypted cardholder data or track data, reducing the merchants' risk of card data theft. TrustKeeper for PCI also helps merchants complete required vulnerability scans and receive their PCI DSS compliance certificate.
Trustwave's TrustKeeper is available in eight European languages, including English, Spanish, French, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, German, and Polish, with more coming soon. TrustKeeper is a revolutionary approach to supporting merchants' compliance efforts. Trustwave's ground-breaking web portal moves merchants through the complex compliance process with ease and efficiency by making the tasks achievable by non-technical users.
"We're excited to be honored with this nomination," said Andy Bokor, executive director, EMEA and APAC at Trustwave. "Smaller merchants often don't have an internal IT team to guide them through the PCI DSS process. Our technology facilitates the merchant compliance experience to ensure even the most non-technical merchant can validate their compliance with the PCI DSS, lowering the risk and potential financial burden on the acquirer, ISO or processor."
