PCI DSS certification is required by major credit card companies for all merchants who process, accept, or store credit card information.
The 12 security requirements in the PCI DSS certification help merchants to prevent hackers from exploiting security vulnerabilities to steal credit card data and negatively impact online retail businesses. Retailers ultimately benefit from the increased security with greater peace of mind by completing the PCI DSS certification.
McAfee announced an improved McAfee PCI Certification Service that includes scanning, remediation assistance, technical support, self-assessment, and validation of merchant compliance status.
The service is easy to use and specially designed for Level 2, 3 and 4 merchants to audit their initial and ongoing PCI compliance status. The improved McAfee PCI Certification Service includes everything a merchant needs for PCI DSS compliance, from start to finish, including a new PCI Wizard that simplifies the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) needed to comply with the PCI DSS certification.
