CHICAGO AND ROSWELL, Ga. (March 25, 2010) " Secure128, a value added wholesaler of name brand website security and marketing products catering to resellers, has partnered with Trustwave to provide e-commerce merchants with a single source data protection solution that combines SSL certificates with security services. The result is a solution bundle that enables e-commerce merchants to secure their information with Trustwave's 256-bit SSL certificates, validate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) through Trustwave's industry leading web portal, TrustKeeper', and demonstrate their compliance to consumers by displaying the Trusted Commercesm web site security seal.
"After surveying existing customers and partners for additional security services we could provide, we determined that solutions for validating compliance with the PCI DSS were at the top of their lists," says Anthony Ricci, CEO of Secure128. "We wanted to provide them with a solution second to none in the industry and Trustwave gives us just that. Their products and services compliment our current offerings and give our customers one more reason to partner with Secure128."
Through this new partnership, Secure128 will resell Trustwave's TrustKeeper SSL Plus package to customers and partners. Included in this package is access to the Trustwave SSL Control Center and TrustKeeper, Trustwave's on-demand compliance management service, which detects and alerts customers of security flaws at their network perimeter and provides guidance to address these exploits. It also provides the necessary tools to support on-going compliance including external vulnerability scanning for Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
TrustKeeper SSL Plus also includes an Enterprise SSL certificate to provide security for those merchants communicating sensitive information over the Internet such as credit card information. These certificates feature 256-Bit encryption and include a $250,000 identification guarantee, as well as free reissues for the life of the certificate.
Additionally, merchants will be able to display Trustwave's Trusted Commerce site security seal. The Trusted Commerce seal is the industry's only site seal to simultaneously display both an organization's compliance with the PCI DSS and their use of an SSL certificate within one seal. The Trusted Commerce seal is recognized as a mark of trust by millions of consumers every day.
TrustKeeper SSL Plus is available for purchase by Secure128 merchants and partners at www.secure128.com.
