Encore Payment Systems has partnered with ControlScan to ensure merchants are meeting the new PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). The standards, established by the PCI Security Standards Council, must be met by all organizations that deal with cardholder information and was established to protect sensitive data. The partnership will provide training and certification for merchants using the Encore platform.
Jethro Felton, executive vice president of sales and business development, ControlScan, sees the partnership as a huge plus for Encore and its merchants. "By utilizing ControlScan's PCI compliance solutions as part of their overall offering, Encore Payments will help their merchant community become secure, thereby ensuring that they meet all private and public regulatory requirements by protecting all cardholder data," Felton was quoted in the release.
In October, Website Magazine reported that each lead generated to Encore provides a $20 commission, and utilizes credit/debit processing. So, protecting all data is a good idea.
