Aria Systems Offers New PCI Compliance Acceleration Program

December 15, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ServicesMEDIA, Pa. – Aria Systems, Inc., the leading provider of on demand billing and subscription management solutions, today announced a new program designed to provide outsourced credit card management services for merchants looking for a faster and less expensive way to achieve Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance for their online transactions. Utilizing the proven Aria Billing and Subscription Management Platform, the new Aria PCI Acceleration Program offers a pure SaaS solution that deploys quickly and integrates easily with merchants’ customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Ecommerce platforms.

Deployed in 30 days or less for $30,000 plus monthly fees based on credit card volumes as low as 1 cent per card, the new program helps merchants reduce the time and expense associated with achieving PCI compliance for online credit card processing. Research firm Gartner has reported that combined Level 1 and Level 2 merchant spending to protect cardholder data and become PCI-compliant increased nearly fivefold from 2006 to 2008, up to an average of $2.7 million among Level 1 merchants and $267,000 among Level 2 merchants.1 Those figures may rise with 2010 Visa and MasterCard deadlines imposing new PCI requirements including more frequent security reviews for many merchants.

The Aria PCI Acceleration Program – available through January 31, 2010 only – helps reduce the PCI burden by providing:

* Secure hosting of end user registration pages – including all pages where payment information is entered, branded and linked to integrate seamlessly with the customer’s branding and web look-and-feel
* Credit card management – providing PCI-compliant management of credit card information
* PCI-compliant bulk-loading of credit card information – to allow organizations to quickly and cost-effectively migrate to an outsourced card management solution
* Integration with major payment processors – including, Chase Paymentech, Cybersource, PayPal, TransFirst, RBS Worldpay, and many more. A complete list of supported processors is available at
* Collections and remittance – so that ongoing customer interactions involving payment card information remain secure and PCI-compliant
