Accuvant Launches PCI Portal Suite

Denver, September 10, 2007 - Accuvant today announced the launch of their new PCI Portal Suite - a comprehensive online knowledge base of PCI information that helps organizations efficiently and effectively mitigate risk to cardholder data.

Accuvant's online, searchable PCI Portal Suite provides users with immediate access to quality, in-depth data that addresses credit card data security standards. The portal is structured into four key categories:

PCI DSS Support Portal. An online knowledge base of PCI information including definitions of 216 PCI requirements, test procedures, compensating controls, remediation steps, risk analysis templates, industry news, helpful links, and more.

PCI On-Demand Consulting. Clients have direct access to Accuvant's knowledgeable staff of PCI QSAs for immediate advice surrounding PCI interpretation, security control sets, and remediation strategies.

Compliance Task Management. Identify, assign, track, and report on PCI compliance tasks and remediation steps throughout the year.

e-Learning. Online training covering PCI requirements and security best practices.

"Complying with PCI security standards is no trivial task," stated Brian Serra, PCI Program Manager for Accuvant. "Our PCI Portal Suite provides a wealth of information for all users - from those requiring help with the basics to the savvy security professional who may need a little extra assistance in interpreting a mandate. Users are able to quickly navigate a single online source for information, or make a direct inquiry to Accuvant's PCI compliance consulting staff.

Accuvant's PCI compliance approach to assessing and managing compliancy is unique, and the PCI Portal Suite is just one example of how Accuvant helps clients meet their PCI initiatives efficiently. Traditionally, organizations have addressed compliance as project-based, requiring labor intensive efforts on a regular basis. Accuvant's strength lies in helping its customers develop a comprehensive program to achieve compliant status, to adapt to ongoing changes, and to do so through a cost-effective, scalable process. The PCI Portal Suite provides the necessary information to help organizations cultivate a long term PCI compliance strategy.
