Tenzing Partners with Alert Logic to Help Ecommerce Customers Comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)

Tenzing Managed IT Services (Tenzing), a leading provider of hosting solutions for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)providers and Ecommerce systems integrators, today announced it has partnered with Alert Logic to help Ecommerce customers address the intrusion detection and vulnerability scanning requirements within the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), a worldwide security standard designed to help control and prevent online credit card fraud.

By partnering with Alert Logic, Tenzing now offers Ecommerce companies a single solution for intrusion detection, vulnerability management and compliance reporting. By integrating Alert Logic’s IT compliant intrusion detection services with its integrated managed hosting offering, Tenzing enables Ecommerce customers to comply with PCI-DSS without having to invest in additional security infrastructure or monitoring resources.

“Tenzing has a proud history of working with best-of-breed partners to deliver optimal solutions that address an increasing number of challenges for our customers, including regulatory compliance,” said Kelly Beardmore, CTO at Tenzing. “The addition of Alert Logic’s intrusion detection and proactive threat management greatly complements our existing security services and together we provide customers with peace of mind.” “PCI compliance is a huge expense for customers and service providers alike,” said Gray Hall, president and CEO of Alert Logic.  “By partnering with Alert Logic, Tenzing adds an affordable security and compliance solution to their overall portfolio to help customers realize the full benefit of moving IT infrastructure to the cloud.”

Through Alert Logic, Tenzing now offers Payment Card Industry (PCI) vulnerability assessments for Tenzing customers that must adhere to PCI-DSS. Alert Logic is an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) by the PCI Security Standards Council, which allows Tenzing customers to evaluate the security of their systems and provide reports to prove compliance to auditors thereby helping them in achieving compliance with PCI-DSS. “Often our Ecommerce customers will look to us to help them comply with PCI-DSS,” said Simon Keogh, Tenzing’s VP of Marketing. “We can now go one step further and bring the strength of Alert Logic’s Threat Manager to a growing number of customers that must proactively confront their network vulnerabilities in order to comply with this multifaceted security standard.”
