ABC Financial Streamlined Their PCI DSS Key Management Audits with Clear Documentation

By August 1, 2019 No Comments


ABC Financial is the nation’s leading software and payment processing provider for the health and fitness industry. For over 6 years, they’ve been using StrongKey’s software and appliances to encrypt and tokenize credit card data to keep their customers’ data secure. As a payment processor, ABC Financial must follow Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI DSS) regulations to ensure that payment data is protected during processing, storage and transmission. The ABC Financial systems are monitored through regular audits performed by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) company; these audits generate a Report on Compliance (ROC), which is ultimately sent to the card issuers for compliance verification. StrongKey’s technology, documentation, and support helps ABC Financial comply with data protection and encryption key management industry standards as well as regulatory requirements.

According to their Senior Compliance Officer (and a former QSA),

“StrongKey provides detailed, straightforward documentation that is approachable for even a non-technical manager. It’s clear that the configurations of the StrongKey appliance are designed to satisfy the PCI DSS requirements directly, which streamlines the audit process for key management to less than 15 minutes.”

·       Streamlined key management audits, down to 15 minutes or less

·       Clear documentation for new administrators

·       A self-contained, scalable security system

·       Reliable, approachable, and responsive support—from installation and training to continued maintenance and upgrades

·       Confidence in the security of their payment data
