Cigital Secures Marriott International

Cigital develops data encryption solution for Marriott International

DULLES, Va. -- Cigital, Inc., a consulting firm specializing in software risk management and data security has developed an enterprise-level credit card encryption solution that solves some of the toughest, most complex PCI data protection requirements.

To avoid serious financial penalties many companies that process credit cards are trying to find the best ways to solve the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) for protecting customer data. The challenge for many organizations has been meeting these new requirements without serious disruption of legacy systems, while being able to serve thousands of remote or distributed locations that can include partners, customers and affiliates.

Companies must consider many possible options to attain a truly cost-effective, yet enterprise-wide solution. It's a matter of balancing careful investment against the right level of business risk. Cigital has a long and successful track record in assessing complex IT situations and testing for issues related to data security. For Marriott International, a leading lodging company, a Secure Credit Card Proxy was recommended to provide a strong security framework.

"We set an aggressive goal of reaching full PCI compliance and sought out a trusted partner with a holistic approach to securing enterprise systems," says Kathy Memenza, Vice President of Enterprise Security for Marriott International. "Cigital's Secure Proxy Solution had exactly the right combination of software components and processes to help us reach our goal at considerably less expense than we would have incurred doing it alone."
