SAN FRANCISCO -- nCircle, the leading provider of agentless security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced that it has expanded its nAble MSSP Partner Program to include Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance solutions. The expanded program enables MSSP partners to increase their revenue by offering a number of managed services to help their customers cost-effectively monitor and comply with the industry standard using certified, best-of-breed technology.
Using nCircle's certified PCI scanning technology one of the first to be certified under the updated PCI standard, version 1.1 MSSPs can offer their customers an easy-to-use, fully automated scan service to help meet the quarterly compliance validation requirements of the standard. Basing their PCI scanning service on nCircle's proven, certified technology provides MSSPs with multiple options to address merchant compliance. MSSPs may either advise their merchant customers to use the nCircle Certified PCI Scan ServiceTM or operate nCircle's PCI scanning technology from their own network operations center to offer a branded certified service.
Additionally, MSSP partners may deploy and integrate other nCircle PCI solutions in their network operations center to profile, report on and prioritize remediation of a customer's entire payment network in preparation for an audit, saving customers ongoing operational and audit costs while improving network security risk and compliance.
"The expansion of nCircle's nAble Partner Program enables MSSPs to take advantage of a market that presents a significant growth opportunity," said Robert McGowan, Director of Business Development at nCircle. "Using nCircle's PCI solutions, our MSSP partners can offer a simple, cost-effective quarterly compliance validation service to merchants or combine them with continuous security risk monitoring and remediation to deliver a robust range of services to ensure comprehensive compliance with the PCI standard."
