AccuCode Partners with Trustwave to Offer Security Solutions to Help Merchants Meet Compliance Requirements

CHICAGO AND CENTENNIAL, COLO (November 17, 2010) -   AccuCode, Inc., a software developer, integrator and value added reseller, has selected Trustwave's industry-leading security and compliance solutions to help its merchants validate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and protect critical assets. Trustwave is a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions.

Trustwave security and compliance solutions will be bundled into AO:Compliance™, AccuCode's PCI Compliance solution set designed to help its merchants become, and stay compliant with the PCI DSS. AO:Compliance was specifically designed with a single point of contact strategy for the retail merchant. AO:Compliance is a PCI compliance eco-system of hardware, software, services and support which will get and keep the merchant PCI compliant.

Through this partnership, AccuCode will provide its merchants Trustwave's PCI DSS compliance validation solutions. Included in this bundle is access to TrustKeeper®, Trustwave's on-demand compliance management service, which detects and alerts customers to security flaws at their network perimeter and provides guidance to address these exploits. It also provides the necessary tools to support on-going PCI DSS compliance including external vulnerability scanning.

For those merchants needing additional security services, AccuCode will provide them with Trustwave's managed security services including Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). These complimentary security services help protect a merchant's network environment, as well as mitigate vulnerabilities. Additionally, merchants will have access to Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to find and protect sensitive information and then implement the appropriate measures to meet compliance requirements.

Merchants looking to further secure their network environment and Web applications can engage SpiderLabs, the advanced security team at Trustwave, to perform Penetration Testing, or ethical hacking, which will help determine if any vulnerability exists in the network or application layer that needs to be secured.

"This is an exciting partnership that brings together the necessary security services to help grocery retailers protect a distributed environment and validate compliance with the PCI DSS," said Frank DiPasquale, Executive Vice President of the National Grocer's Association, an AccuCode partner.

"The combination of Trustwave's award-winning security and compliance solutions and their level of expertise is unmatched in the industry," said Kevin Price, CEO of AccuCode. "Working with a leader helps ensure that we're bringing the best solutions to our merchants to help them protect their data and solve security concerns."

"AccuCode understands the importance of PCI DSS compliance validation as evident by their commitment to providing their merchants with leading security and compliance solutions," said Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. "This partnership will provide AccuCode's merchants with the resources necessary to validate and maintain their compliance."
