StillSecure Promotes Managed PCI Compliance Solution

StillSecure is trying to help managed services providers cash in on the PCI security standard. Indeed, the company is promoting PCI Complete, a managed PCI compliance solution.

"The PC security standard is very complex and difficult to understand," asserts StillSecure VP of Business Development Steve Harper. "It's the most descriptive and prescriptive of all business standards." Not by coincidence, Harper says PCI Complete covers 165 of the 176 sub-requirements of the PCI Data Security Standard. Here's a list of the services included...

Fully managed compliance/security services included:

  • Firewall
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention System
  • SSL and IPSec VPN
  • Multi-Factor Authentication
  • Internal PCI Vulnerability Scanning
  • Internal Penetration Testing
  • External ASV Vulnerability Scanning
  • External ASV Penetration Testing
  • Web Application Firewall
  • File Integrity Monitoring
  • Log Management and Monitoring
PCI-specific policies and procedures Implemented and managed by StillSecure on your behalf:
  • Network segnationation
  • Change control management
  • Daily event review of all security event log files
  • 6 month firewall and Web app firewall rule configuration reviews
  • Alert escalation procedures
  • Incidence response procedures
  • 24x7x365 QSA Approved and SAS 70 type II audited security operations centers (SOCs)
Companies that want to use the service pay a recurring monthly fee that starts at $1,000 a month for small businesses. Harper says this is still a significant discount compared to the alternative of hiring several IT professionals to address security compliance issues. "Security professionals are in demand and they're paid very well," said Harper. "Most of their salaries are in the six-figure range."

Many SMB customers, he notes, don't have enough available budget to address PCI with full-time hires.
