Virtualisation software firm Parallels has partnered with Trustwave to provide cloud services providers with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance validation solutions.
PCI DSS is the payment card industry security requirement for entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and has been endorsed by all the major card brands – Visa, MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB.
Trustwave will provide PCI DSS services and solutions to Parallels’ customers, including TrustKeeper on-demand compliance management program, which provides customers with the automated tools necessary to validate PCI DSS compliance including the required quarterly network vulnerability scans.
“With the PCI DSS and beyond, it was critical that security be a primary focus to ensure the integrity and privacy of our cloud services providers. Working with a trusted and strategic partner like Trustwave was extremely beneficial to address PCI DSS compliance,” said Soeren von Varchmin, vice president software-as-a-service (SaaS), Parallels.
