CHICAGO AND HAMPTON, NJ (July 29, 2010) -United Bank Card, Inc. (UBC), a PCI DSS-compliant payment processing provider, has partnered with Trustwave to implement a Level 4 program to help merchants achieve and maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Trustwave is a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions.
The 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 Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB. Level 4 merchants are defined as those that process fewer than 20,000 e-commerce transactions and/or fewer than 1 million single card transactions per year.
In order to assist in the compliance efforts of merchants, UBC has engaged Trustwave to provide its merchants access to TrustKeeper, Trustwave's on-demand compliance management solution. This industry-leading Web portal includes access to quarterly network vulnerability scans to help make compliance validation easy and efficient for all United Bank Card merchants, including non-technical users.
"Most - if not all - small merchants often lack the resources to ensure their environment is properly secured and compliant," says Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. "TrustKeeper was designed with these users in mind so that compliance is easy to understand and implement, resulting in safe shopping for their customers."
"We're confident that this partnership with Trustwave will provide a perfect complement to our existing PCI compliance efforts," says Jared Isaacman, CEO of United Bank Card. "Maintaining the security of consumer data is of utmost importance to United Bank Card and this partnership illustrates our continued commitment to this objective."
