Company Offers Industry’s Most Comprehensive PCI Vulnerability Analysis, Reporting and Consultation Masergy logoDALLAS – August 27, 2014 –  Masergy Communications Inc., a global leader in  managed networking, advanced  cyber  security and cloud services, announced today that the company has successfully completed the rigorous Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) lab certification. As a company on the cutting-edge of security, this certification enables Masergy to help organizations protect and harden their networks from advanced threats. The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS), endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adopt information security controls and processes to ensure data integrity. Participating payment brands require PCI DSS compliance reports by a certified third-party assessor for onsite audits of merchants and service providers that process payment card transactions. More information on the Council and the standard can be found at   www.pcisecuritystandards.org As an ASV for its ninth consecutive year, Masergy’s Professional Services team has been helping merchants manage data security risks, evaluate the security of their systems that store payment account data and assist them in achieving compliance with the PCI DSS. “The PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data,” said Bob Russo, General Manager, PCI Security Standards Council. “By participating in the ASV certification process, Masergy demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.” Recent headlines detailing data breaches in retail, financial and healthcare industries underscore the critical need for rigorous data security standards and certification, and the availability of advanced security systems that continually monitor all potential access points in corporate IT systems. Masergy provides the industry’s most comprehensive solution for PCI compliance assurance. The company’s detailed process includes network and application security assessments using a combination of multiple security scanning tools to discover vulnerabilities.  These automated processes are supplemented with industry-unique manual testing processes. The results are then cross referenced to ensure all potential system weaknesses are identified while maintaining an extremely low false positive rate.  After applicable system changes and software updates are applied, Masergy reassesses the customer’s infrastructure to ensure vulnerabilities have been eliminated, and the changes did not introduce new risks into the environment. “Masergy’s rigorous compliance assessment service provides in-depth consultation, end to end compliance testing and detailed technical and executive level reporting,” said the Chief Information Security Officer at a leading financial services firm.  “Masergy is the only company that provides this level of service.” Masergy’s complete set of Security Professional services include: “Masergy has offered these services for a decade and has developed a high level of expertise.
