ZyEdge receives coveted PCI validation certification
Reston, VA; July 1, 2006 – ZyEdge LLC, a leading managed service provider specializing in security and IP telephony, has received MasterCard Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance certification. MasterCard merchants around the world can now turn to ZyEdge as a reliable, trusted source to help meet PCI compliance and validation regulations.
PCI Compliance rules are designed to protect the private information of employers and employees during a credit-card transaction. The rules require a scanning process to ensure merchants meet strict PCI security standards.
“Properly certified scanning companies go through a rigorous process to be certified with the credit card companies,” according to the PCI Compliance Guide. ZyEdge joins an elite group of companies that have successfully completed this process and received PCI certification from MasterCard.
Talk America Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TALK) is already using ZyEdge PCI compliance scanning services. “We receive credit-card payments from our customers, so certain security standards have to be met,” says Don Sewell, direction of communications and networks at Talk America, in Reston, VA. “ZyEdge helps us ensure that our customer information is secure and cannot be attacked.”
Security has always been a focus at ZyEdge, according to Ben Gerenstein, president and CEO of the company. “Offering our customers security auditing and validation services is something we’ve always done,” Gerenstein says. “MasterCard PCI compliance scanning is a natural addition to our family of security offerings.”
