MegaPath Launches New PCI 3.0 Compliance Solutions Providing Protection Against Cyber Attacks

Solutions Enable Merchants to Adhere to PCI DSS Requirements through Network Assessment, Continuous Monitoring and Management, and Compliance Assistance

Pleasanton, Calif. – January 12, 2015MegaPath, one of the leading providers of managed voice, data, security and cloud services in North America, today announced the launch of its PCI DSS 3.0 Compliance Solutions, enabling merchants to adhere to the Payment Card Industry’s latest Data Security Standards while protecting against data breaches. As part of its comprehensive new solution, MegaPath is offering network assessments, continuous monitoring and management, and compliance assistance to help customers attain and maintain compliance with PCI 3.0 requirements.

“High-profile data breaches seem to be occurring on a regular basis. However, companies today are still challenged to achieve and maintain PCI compliance,” said David Williams, President of Managed Services, MegaPath. “A key challenge is that many merchants lack the resources and personnel to consistently meet security standards. MegaPath’s Security-as-a-Service model addresses that challenge by offering trained and dedicated security personnel to continuously monitor and analyze customers’ networks to detect vulnerabilities and threats, reducing the burden on the retailer.”

To help retailers achieve and maintain PCI Compliance, MegaPath’s offerings include:

  • Network Assessment – MegaPath will review and evaluate customers’ networks and identify risks, and will develop risk profiles to determine the probability and cost of a data breach. Based on this information, MegaPath will work with customers to develop solutions that incorporate best practices and meet compliance requirements.
  • Continuous Monitoring – MegaPath’s Security Operations Center team of trained and reliable technicians will continuously monitor and analyze retailers’ networks, eliminating the need to hire additional security personnel. They will identify security threats as they arise and respond quickly to thwart the attack and ensure critical data is not compromised. They will also provide documentation to help merchants achieve PCI compliance.
  • Compliance Assistance – To help customers maintain compliance throughout the year, MegaPath will assist with quarterly security audits and external vulnerability scans, and provide thorough reports to document PCI DSS compliance.

MegaPath has a long history with PCI DSS and was the first communications service provider to achieve PCI/CISP compliance. More than 80,000 customer locations trust MegaPath and its Security Operations Center personnel to monitor their networks. In addition to these solutions, MegaPath offers Managed Broadband Access, Managed Security, Managed Remote Access and Managed WiFi to ensure strict levels of compliance are achieved.
