United Merchant Processing Association Selects Conformance Technologies for PCI DSS Compliance Validation

LAS VEGAS–()–Conformance Technologies, a fast-growing provider of operating systems, education systems and expertise used in managing business compliance requirements, today announced that United Merchant Processing Association (UMPA) has selected its PCI ToolKit® solution for merchant portfolio PCI compliance validation. The patented PCI ToolKit solution fully conforms to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.0), tackling the increased complexity head-on for merchant acquirers, Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) and their merchant customers.

“Best-in-class functionality helps merchants easily become compliant and then maintain their compliance, plus best-in-class pricing with actionable sales and service data for portfolio operators makes PCI ToolKit a solution that can’t be beat”

“We chose the PCI ToolKit solution from Conformance Technologies because it makes the PCI compliance validation process quick and easy for our members,” said Dee Seltzer, UMPA president. “As an innovative merchant services provider, the Conformance product set ensures that UMPA can outrun our competition by ensuring that our members transact safely,” adds Seltzer.

“The Conformance PCI ToolKit is simply the best PCI DSS 3.0 compliance validation solution for both merchants and operators of merchant portfolios like UMPA,” states Darrel Anderson, president of Conformance Technologies. “Best-in-class functionality helps merchants easily become compliant and then maintain their compliance, plus best-in-class pricing with actionable sales and service data for portfolio operators makes PCI ToolKit a solution that can’t be beat,” adds Anderson. “We are delighted to welcome UMPA as a PCIToolKit customer and look forward to helping their members with compliance,” continues Anderson.

Unlike competing offers that simply copy the PCI Security Standards Council Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs) and present them online verbatim, PCI ToolKit translates complicated PCI rules, questions and forms into a merchant security experience that is simple, accurate and comprehensive. Visual wizard technology makes compliance validation fast and easy for small business owners. The number of questions asked during the merchant attestation process is often reduced by fifty percent. Intelligent field population capabilities yield greater merchant response accuracy and higher completion rates. PCI ToolKit is the only compliance validation solution that provides ready-made polices and an education portal for employee training and testing free as part of its core functionality. Interactive multimedia assistance, plus email and client contact center for validation and scanning related support, come standard with PCI ToolKit.
