PA-DSS

PA-DSS Assessment

At MegaplanIT, we have a keen understanding of the challenge businesses face in passing compliance assessments and remaining compliant over time. Our PA-DSS assessment services are designed to keep your costs and level of effort down while making it easy to stay compliant year after year.

Your Path to Achieving PA-DSS Compliance

The Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) is a definitive standard for payment applications, including any software or hardware that stores, processes, or transmits electronic credit card data. POS devices (such as Verifone or Aloha) and e-commerce website apps (such as CRE Loaded or osCommerce) are all in scope for a PA-DSS assessment. Whatever form your payment applications take, safeguarding sensitive payment data is a top priority.

Our bundled compliance solution takes a streamlined approach—on and off-site—to get your business ready for its next assessment and keep you compliant all year round. Our expert QSAs ensure your payment applications and POS devices are fully secured and compliant with the PA-DSS framework.

With decades of experience, MegaplanIT has a proven record of excellence in developing accurate PA-DSS Compliance Reports that provide the best value in the industry. Contact us today to find out how our PCI-DSS Plus Program can help your business save time and reduce costs.
