Alert Logic Achieves PCI DSS Compliance

PCI DSS Compliance is a worldwide information security standard defined by the PCI Security Standards Council made up of the world’s leading credit card companies including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. The Council was created to help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise.

Alert Logic helps organizations eliminate the burden of PCI compliance management as the security industry’s only cloud-powered vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and log management solution. Together with a 24×7 Security Operations Center that provides monitoring by certified security analysts as well as redundant data centers, Alert Logic provides organizations with the most affordable and easy means to secure their networks and comply with PCI DSS in ways traditional cyber security solutions cannot.

“More and more, organizations want to engage with business partners who meet data privacy and other regulatory requirements even if they’re not bound by the regulations. Being able to demonstrate PCI compliance is what sets us apart from our competition,” said Marty McGuffin, vice president of operations for Alert Logic. “When customers go through the time and expense of achieving compliance, they look for the same in their service providers to also prove they have implemented controls to safeguard their data in a secure fashion, consistent with regulations.”
