Prime Factors Rolls Out PCI Encryption Software

EncryptRIGHT comes bundled with management, secure audit logs, and predefined PCI reporting capabilities
Eugene, OR, September 7, 2010 – Prime Factors, Inc. is officially announcing EncryptRIGHT™, a suite of encryption and key management software designed to meet stringent data security and compliance requirements specified by the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards (PCI DSS or PCI).

EncryptRIGHT was designed to provide a more flexible way to meet PCI encryption requirements by simplifying key management and reducing the cost of deployment. It comes bundled with key management, secure audit logs and predefined PCI reporting capabilities; everything a company needs to achieve PCI encryption compliance.

“While the market is crowded with encryption vendors, there remains a need for complete encryption and key management solutions like EncryptRIGHT that are flexible, simple to use and which keep costs under control, said Patrick Riley, president of Prime Factors.

Since 1981, Prime Factors has provided flexible, cost-effective encryption software to more than 1,000 customers worldwide. Over the years, customers have expressed a need for flexibility, simplicity and cross-platform compatibility. EncryptRIGHT was developed to deliver all of these characteristics, allowing users to address many different use cases, thus delivering more value to customers.

EncryptRIGHT can be deployed in large scale environments consisting of IBM mainframes and AS400s, as well as in distributed environments running UNIX, Linux and PCs. Multi-platform support lets EncryptRIGHT users implement a single encryption solution across their enterprise.

EncryptRIGHT provides broad application development support and can be implemented by programmers and non-programmers alike. It has everything an organization needs to standardize on it across an enterprise. The first company to implement EncryptRIGHT is a long-time customer of Prime Factors and one of the largest financial institutions in the world.

“The customer point of contact – the vice president of encryption – reported that EncryptRIGHT is flexible enough to be a corporate-wide standard for encryption and key management,” Riley said.

The capabilities that make EncryptRIGHT flexible are:

* Secure sensitive data at the field or record level * Secure whole files without programming by using EncryptRIGHT as a utility * Manage keys and security settings for a large number of end points from a central point * Accommodate many new requirements without reprogramming (set up properly, of course) * Implement security without changing the application using numeric and alpha numeric encryption processes * Use almost any development tool with EncryptRIGHT’s API * Encrypt data across multiple platforms using a single solution

EncryptRIGHT can be integrated into existing solutions by a programmer using the API, or a non-programmer using the application interface. The software’s flexibility allows users to choose how best to encrypt data without disrupting operations.

EncryptRIGHT highlights:

* PCI approved cryptography and key management for one price * Reports and audit trails for assessment & verification processes * Broad platform support from PC to mainframe * A simple desktop application, or API for application integration * Wizards to help you get running quickly
