Liability reduction

Avoid unforeseen expenses that result from data compromise with up to $100,000 of breach coverage for fines relating to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). SecurityMetrics Assurance includes data breach coverage to help you avoid expenses relating to:

  • Forensic investigations
  • Payment card brand fines
  • Customer payment card replacement fees
  • Customer notification costs
  • Regulatory fines/penalties

Card Data discovery

Based on a SecurityMetrics study , 71% of merchants store unencrypted payment card data on their business network. Unencrypted payment card data storage is in violation of the PCI DSS and leaves a business vulnerable to increased liability.

Assurance includes PANscan, software that helps you reduce liability by scanning for unencrypted payment card data on your business network. This makes it easy to find storage sources and securely delete the unwanted data.

To stay up-to-date with PCI requirements and network changes, regular use of PANscan is recommended. Once PANscan is downloaded, you may run scans to check for unwanted data as often as desired. A preventive approach to data breach protection is your first line of defense.

Security consulting

Business network security may not be your specialty. SecurityMetrics Assurance includes one hour of free consulting with a security expert to help you reduce risk, understand compliance regulations, and discuss technology to secure sensitive data.

Data protection policy

To help employees understand best practices for data security, SecurityMetrics Assurance provides businesses with a data protection policy template to create custom procedures for secure payment card processing.

Top reasons to use SecurityMetrics Assurance

Here's what our customers are saying

SecurityMetrics is the most retail friendly solution. At the small business level, frequently the person that has to interface with the tool is an owner or someone who has financial responsibility, but they may not necessary be technically savvy with using online tools. We believe SecurityMetrics meets that need better than anyone else we've seen.
