Free Online Service Helps Software Developers Gauge Payment Application Security Vulnerabilities

Online tool at www.freePCIscore.com generates a Payment Application Risk Score
NEWARK, Calif., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Payment Processing, Inc. (PPI), the industry leader for integrated payments, today announced a new online tool at www.freePCIscore.com. A component of the PPI Education Series, the site permits software developers to conduct a short survey, resulting in the generation of a Payment Application Risk Score. The score's meaning is explained for the developer, and potential next steps are provided. The site is particularly timely, given the July 1, 2010 mandates stating that acquirers must ensure their merchants, VNPs and agents use only compliant applications.
