Secure Payments is a Revolutionary New Channel Approach to PCI Compliance and Data Protection
FARGO, ND / ACCESSWIRE / October 21, 2021 / ConnectBooster, the provider of secure, world-class payment solutions for IT services firms, introduces an innovative new solution to help MSPs manage a growing threat for the businesses they support. Designed specifically for the channel, Secure Payments includes a robust platform and assessment for businesses that accept electronic payments.
More than 88% of businesses have unencrypted payment card data on company-controlled devices and systems, according to the latest PANscan report, which can result in fines of up to $500,000 per security incident. PCI DSS (the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) requirement 3 requires organizations to protect the primary account numbers (PAN) they store for payment processing. Non-compliance with these critical industry standards creates a major liability for SMBs.
Secure Payments by ConnectBooster is a payment solution that empowers MSPs to easily guide their customers in reducing the security risk and financial threat of non-compliance. “If a business experiences a breach today, any credit card data stored in those systems could be compromised,” says Ryan Goodman, President of ConnectBooster. “Secure Payments removes that information from the clients’ IT environment and provides MSPs with new recurring revenue streams.”
Secure Payments provides a simple assessment, based on PCI DSS best practices and other cybersecurity and industry standards, that allows IT services professionals to quickly evaluate and address the security, compliance, and optimization of their clients’ payment landscapes.
Examples of assessment criteria include the use of point-to-point encryption tools, tokenization, EMV chip acceptance, PCI DSS Compliance, and other methods for protecting PII (Personal Identifiable Information).
“MSPs typically take the blame for cybersecurity incidents, so they deserve to be paid for managing these threats. Secure Payments gives the IT services community the tools and support to make that happen,” adds Goodman. “MSPs finally have a channel-optimized solution to facilitate and protect payments for their clients that adds recurring revenue for their own businesses.”
