-- A new online gateway for ISOs and Merchants aims to make complying with PCI DSS as simple as checking your email. Megaplan-IT has announced the launch of their groundbreaking Compliance as a Service (CaaS) Portal, a convenient browser-based service that takes the confusion out of PCI compliance. CaaS Portal streamlines the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) Report and Security Scan process, creating a database of complex information that is presented in an intuitive interface. This is the first portal in the industry to offer on-screen signatures for Attestations and a multi-lingual option will be available in the near future. Another industry first is the “opt-in” feature for multiple levels of breach protection.
If your company processes or handles credit card information, you’re already familiar with PCI DSS Compliance. For the uninitiated, every year thousands of ISOs, Merchants, and Banks must undergo a lengthy (and often expensive) audit process that ensures a minimum level of security is in place to protect sensitive cardholder data. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) has established 4 levels for Merchants that correspond to the number of credit cards they process each year. Level 1 Merchants are the most prolific processors, while Levels 2-4 Merchants handle a lower threshold of credit card information.
s CaaS Portal is designed for ISOs and Merchants that are classified as Level 2, 3, or 4. The elegant dashboard interface can be fully-branded with custom logos and colors for ISOs and sub-ISOs who would like merchants to see their specific brand. The portal easily guides the user step-by-step through the necessary certification process. Attestations and certificates can be emailed or printed directly from the portal. An “Auto-Pilot”
feature automatically pulls and sends Card Brand reports to designated emails on certain days of the month, as determined by the user. CaaS Portal keeps track of everything, so you can focus on winning new business while remaining confident that your compliance responsibilities are being met.
