  • Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) December 18, 2014 - Coalfire today announced that its PCI software solution Navis RapidSAQTM has been updated to include new Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) that will help large organizations manage their Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) process.

    The updates the PCI Council made to the PCI DSS 3.0 now require more in-depth information on the technologies and methods for the processing and handling of cardholder and payment transaction data. The scope changes include a growth from four to 11 SAQ types. It is also now possible for a merchant to qualify for more than one of the 11 SAQ types, making the self-assessment process challenging for large organizations. These annual SAQs are required by any organization that accepts credit cards to validate their compliance to the PCI Data Security Standard.

    In order to help merchants navigate this expanded compliance landscape, Coalfire developed a built-in wizard with its Navis RapidSAQ software to assist subscribing merchants to find the right categories and requirements for their company.

    Navis RapidSAQ 3.0 will guide subscribed merchants through this process using a dynamic environmental scoping survey that will determine SAQ type(s) that apply to their organization based on answering questions about their payment environment (completely hosted infrastructure, uses hosted payment page, virtual terminal processing, etc.). Once SAQ scoping is completed, Navis will then display applicable requirements and provide the tools to complete the appropriate SAQ types. RapidSAQ 3.0 will prepare all of the required information for submission to your acquiring bank to demonstrate compliance with the PCI DSS.

    With Navis RapidSAQ 3.0 Software, enterprises will now be able to:
    Conduct and generate SAQs for multiple point-of-interaction merchants (ecommerce, card present, etc.)
    Conduct multiple SAQs and track completion progress across multiple communities
    Identify non-compliant gaps and build a remediation plan
    Track and report on key assets that make up your cardholder data environment, such as service providers, terminals, applications and facilities
    Have access to a full suite of included templates and tools to address PCI DSS control requirements

    If merchants desire a greater level of assistance in assessing their compliance, clients have the option to upgrade their services and gain access to a certified Qualified Security Assessor to help facilitate the SAQ process.

    "The PCI council has introduced more stringent requirements to validate a merchant's compliance with data security standards as data breaches at high profile retailers continue to increase. The updates we implemented in Navis RapidSAQ are meant to streamline the new SAQ process for merchants and achieve a higher level of risk management. This process will allow merchants to be able to quickly assess their compliance approach, manage complex reporting organizations with ease and focus on completing the SAQ to demonstrate they are meeting the latest in PCI requirements," said Kennet Westby, president and cofounder of Coalfire.
