Trustwave Garners Security Award

March 7, 2011

Trustwave, a London-based provider of information security and compliance solutions, has received the Data Security Award from the European Card Acquiring Forum (ECAF) for TrustKeeper, Trustwave’s security and compliance web portal. The Data Security Award recognizes the acquirer, processor, network services provider, payment services provider, payment scheme or solution provider that has the best performing security system, as expressed by merchant satisfaction, fraud rates or security breaches. Trustwave’s TrustKeeper is a web portal that supports merchants’ compliance efforts by moving them more efficiently through the complex compliance process by making the tasks achievable by non-technical users. “Smaller merchants are the least aware of their risk and the most in need of assistance in understanding and navigating the complex security requirements of the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS),” said Leon Dhaene, chairman of the Guiding Hand Awards, which issued the awards on behalf of the European Card Acquiring Forum. “The Trustwave solution supports a wide variety of merchant types, ranging from a small e-commerce store, a restaurant chain with multiple locations, a retailer with both physical presence and web sales, etc. The challenge was to create one-size-fits-all program for PCI DSS compliance.”
