WiFi Owl Offers PCI Compliance Tool

Axensis introduces WiFi Owl version 3 enable organizations to ensure ongoing PCI compliance

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- Retailers and other businesses that depend on credit card purchases know that they have to comply with the PCI DSS standard according to Visa's deadline of September 30, 2007 or face severe fines. The greatest obstacle to achieving PCI compliance is cost. Organizations can spend millions of dollars to purchase security and encryption products. Many wireless security management companies offer products rich with features but very expensive. Some cost as much as $795 per Access Point, and when organizations have hundreds and even thousands of access points the cost of compliance is hard to swallow.

Starting today, companies have an alternative solution. Wifi-Owl wireless security audit and compliance software, version 3, gets the job done with ease and at a fraction of the cost without any hardware probes or lengthy deployment projects. It enables organizations to conduct a rapid compliance audit, generate reports which show when non-compliance exists, and continuously monitor wireless environments to ensure ongoing compliance.

"We have worked hard to make our reports thorough and yet immediately readable by every member of the Compliance team: Security Managers, QSAs, IT auditors and CSOs," declares Alex Bakman, founder and CEO of WIfi-Owl. "The product was designed by people who understand the complexities of wireless security and specifically addresses every wireless security requirement of PCI DSS 1.1".
