RSA Launches PCI Compliance Packages
By Stefanie Hoffman, ChannelWeb
7:13 PM EDT Wed. Oct. 08, 2008 Concluding the SecurWorld Partner Conference, RSA, the Security Division of EMC (NYSE:EMC), announced the release of two packages aimed at helping retailers make their Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard deadlines.
The packages address tightening deadlines imposed on all of MasterCard’s Level 2 retailers and 282 of Visa’s, which process between one and six million credit card transactions per year. Level 2 retailers are required to be PCI compliant by the end of the calendar year. Subsequently, retailers who fail to meet deadlines will face steep fines and fees, and ultimately run the risk of losing their credit card processing rights.
