ViaWest & Still Secure Announce PCI Complete Partnership

September 20, 2010 by  

Hosting ServicesLAS VEGAS – StillSecure, an enterprise network security solutions and service company, is today introducing at the Hosting Transformation Summit, PCI CompleteTM, the industry’s first Qualified Security Assessor (QSA)-certified, managed security solution that helps merchants and service providers comply with all managed Payment Card Industry (PCI) provisions. ViaWest is partnering with StillSecure to provide the PCI Complete solution, which will be available to customers in October.

PCI Complete is a single, fully managed solution built on the trusted StillSecure security platform and delivered through compliance certified data centers that delivers the people, processes and technology merchants need to achieve and maintain PCI compliance. Coalfire Systems, a leading Qualified Security Assessor (PCI auditor), IT audit and compliance firm for emerging data privacy legislation, has validated that StillSecure PCI Complete provides a comprehensive solution for all the managed sub-requirements currently defined in the PCI Data Security Standards.


“Too many existing solutions simply provide a hand-wave towards compliance,” said Rick Dakin, CEO and Senior Security Strategist, of Coalfire Systems. “We applaud StillSecure for providing precise, auditor-assured metrics that not only meet today’s stringent PCI requirements, but as a fully-managed solution, will evolve as requirements change in the future.”

“With so many merchants struggling to take the responsible steps towards PCI compliance, we were determined to provide a comprehensive, cost-effective PCI Compliance solution that finally frees you up to focus on your core business.” said Rajat Bhargava, Chairman and CEO of StillSecure. “As long as the organization is taking basic business security steps, PCI Complete will complete the compliance picture for you. PCI Complete packages StillSecure’s award-winning managed services and technology, delivered through approved data center partners to take care of all the compliance headaches that you spend too much time worrying about.”

“As a super-regional provider of colocation, and managed services, we focus heavily on finding solutions that allow our clients to spend less time managing their IT infrastructure and more time focusing on their core competencies as a business,” said Roy Dimoff, Chairman & CEO of ViaWest, Inc. “Bundling the StillSecure PCI Complete solution into our product suite will truly simplify our customer’s ability to achieve compliance in one of the toughest data security standards. That is a great differentiator that no other data center provider can offer today.”

Once a business ensures the following basic security requirements are in place, PCI Complete will complete the compliance picture:

1. Standard policies are in place for passwords, messaging, and hiring.
2. Anti-virus and personal firewall software are deployed.
3. WPA or WPA2 wireless security is implemented for all wireless access points.
4. The customer adheres to PCI coding standards for their custom code.
5. Any hosting providers used by the customer are PCI compliant.
6. All point of sales systems are PA-DSS compliant and store and display credit card information masked or encrypted.
7. The customer uses a unified authentication system like Active Directory or LDAP

For a low monthly subscription, StillSecure PCI Complete delivers the personnel, continuous monitoring, procedures, process implementation, as well as all the needed technologies (including the physical or virtual appliance) for completing the PCI compliance picture. It also includes simple, single-button access to the PCI-specific reports that prove to auditors and management that the IT environment is secure and compliant. StillSecure’s PCI Complete will be available through ViaWest in October 2010.
