Alert Logic joins PCI SVA

Company brings security expertise to payment card vendor coalition


HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alert Logic, an award-winning provider of on-demand IT compliance and security solutions, today announced that it has joined the Payment Card Industry Security Vendor Alliance (PCI SVA). The PCI SVA works with the retail and payment card industries to develop efficient and cost-effective ways to achieve compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a global benchmark intended to improve security throughout the entire payment card transaction process.

PCI SVA members, all with strong experience in delivering PCI compliance solutions to thousands of customers, leverage their combined knowledge to support the objectives of the PCI Security Standards Council -- securing sensitive data processed by merchant partners with best-of-breed PCI DSS solutions that address the needs of system integrators and business users.

Alert Logic also aids customers in achieving PCI DSS compliance by serving as a PCI Security Standards Council Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV). As an ASV, Alert Logic is certified to help merchants evaluate the security of their systems and assist them in achieving compliance with the PCI DSS.

In addition to providing assessments for PCI DSS compliance, Alert Logic offers technology that helps customers comply with the standard. Alert Logic Threat Manager helps organizations comply with Requirement 11 of the regulation by providing intrusion detection and vulnerability management solutions. With its Log Manager product, Alert Logic addresses Requirement 10 of the PCI DSS, which mandates the collection, regular review and archival of log data.

"Meeting PCI DSS requirements means that businesses are doing what is best for consumers by protecting cardholder data. By providing technology and best practices for PCI DSS, we are making it easier for our customers to achieve compliance with this important standard," said Michael Turner, Alert Logic's president and CEO. "We are excited to be part of the PCI SVA and look forward to working with our peers to educate the business community about the PCI DSS."
