StillSecure Announces Support For New PCI Wireless Guidelines

StillSecure's products, services and managed security solutions help organizations comply with the PCI DSS wireless guidelines in a number of key areas

(Superior, Colo. - July 21, 2009) - StillSecure', provider of secure network infrastructure solutions, today outlined its support for the recently released PCI DSS wireless guidelines, prepared by the PCI SSC Wireless Special Interest Group (SIG) Implementation Team. Using StillSecure's suite of security products, services and managed security solutions, organizations comply with 8 of the 12 top-level PCI requirements and dozens of specific sub-requirements.

The goal of the recent "Information Supplement: PCI DSS Wireless Guideline" is "to help organizations understand how PCI DSS applies to wireless environments, how to limit the PCI DSS scope as it pertains to wireless, and practical methods and concepts for deployment of secure wireless in payment card transaction environments."

StillSecure's products, services and managed security solutions help organizations comply with the PCI DSS wireless guidelines in a number of key areas. For example, StillSecure implements and manages firewalls between wireless networks and the cardholder data environment (CDE), and deploys and manages network intrusion detection/prevention systems (IDS/IPS) to monitor wireless traffic. In addition, the company helps safeguard sensitive data being transmitted over open, public networks, and ensures that vendor default passwords have been changed and security settings are enabled. For additional detail on how StillSecure helps organizations meet PCI DSS wireless guidelines, please download the whitepaper, "PCI compliance: A technology overview," at http://www2.stillsecure.com/go/stillsecure/PCICompliance?tp=400759987.

"Wireless networking is a tremendous enabler for mobility and increased productivity, but it can represent a serious threat to the cardholder data environment (CDE) unless properly secured. Even if an organization doesn't utilize wireless technology, PCI requires constant vigilance for rogue wireless access points and networks," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. "By deploying products and services that help isolate and securely manage wireless components, StillSecure helps protect organizations while reducing the risk and liability of fraud and non-compliance."

StillSecure solutions are available as hardware appliances, managed services, or software. All solutions directly address many critical requirements within the PCI Data Security Standard. For more information about StillSecure's PCI support, see http://www.stillsecure.com/pci.
