Evolution partners with Foregenix to help companies achieve PCI DSS compliance
London, 7th March 2012 – Foregenix, the digital forensics specialist, has announced a partnership with Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) Evolution. Evolution will use Foregenix’s FScout cardholder data discovery software to help its customers achieve PCI DSS compliance. The tool will form part of the QSA’s own audit process, as well as being used directly by clients who want to monitor the cardholder data on their systems on an on-going basis.
Evolution is a leading QSA providing guidance to clients on a variety of data protection issues, from credit card details taken during payments, to names and addresses stored within ecommerce systems. The company also provides a managed service solution to customers across the UK and Asia. FScout will enable Evolution and its clients to detect any “rogue” cardholder data on their networks. Once found, the data can be quickly and easily secured and/or deleted, protecting companies from data breaches and helping them to achieve PCI DSS v2.0 compliance.
“Any data breach suffered after a PCI audit has taken place reflects badly on the QSA so it is crucial for us to feel confident that the cardholder data discovery tool we use goes far beyond basic scanning,” says Ritchie Jeune, Evolution’s Head of Compliance. “FScout’s level of granularity, the credibility of its results and its accurate reporting are second to none meaning we can offer the ultimate assurance to clients.”
“PCI DSS v2.0 requires merchants to be more vigilant about protecting any credit card data residing on their systems,” adds Benj Hosack, Director at Foregenix. “However, many companies are still unaware of the amount or location of this data which makes it impossible for them to protect themselves. We’re delighted to be working with Evolution to provide companies with FScout, an accurate and automated solution that can save them time and money in the compliance process and peace of mind that their businesses have another layer of defence against data breaches.”
