MegaPath Lends Voice to PCI Security Standards Council

MegaPath Inc., a provider of managed IP data, voice and security services in North America, has joined the PCI Security Standards Council. As a participating organization, MegaPath will work with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.

As a participating organization, MegaPath will now have access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, be able to provide feedback on the standards and become part of a growing community that now includes more than 500 organizations.

MegaPath's retail network provides security for credit card transactions and supports data communications for essential retail applications, including point-of-sale (POS), back office systems, training and digital video surveillance. The company's retail solutions leverage its all-optical, nationwide MPLS backbone to connect stores and remote locations with headquarters. With MegaPath's comprehensive suite of Managed Security Services, which includes Managed Firewal and Digital Certificates/PKI, as well as the expertise of its engineers, the company can customize a secure, flexible IP virtual private network (VPN) solution tailored to a retailer's specific requirements.

The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity.
