WALTHAM, Mass. -- Ounce Labs, the industry leader in software risk management, today announced it has joined the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council as a Participating Organization. This announcement reinforces Ounce's commitment to help organizations create secure applications, protect confidential data and comply with the requirements of the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS), a major industry requirements document intended to improve security throughout the entire payment card transaction process.
As a member of the PCI Security Standards Council, Ounce Labs will play an active role in facilitating future refinements of the PCI Standard, as well as make ongoing contributions to the PCI community of practitioners, vendors, software developers and auditors through educational collateral, Webinars, and participation in specialized subcommittees.
"Our goal at Ounce is to eliminate the risk that customers' confidential information will be compromised by a security breach, resulting in identity theft," said Hugh Scandrett, president and CEO of Ounce Labs. "We look forward to working with the Council on future iterations of the standard, and ensuring that our application security solution continues to help organizations not just comply with PCI, but strengthen their overall application development and security processes."
