Sysnet Global Solutions and iScan Online Announce Partnership to Provide Acquiring Organizations with New Mobile Security Solutions
LAS VEGAS, DUBLIN and DALLAS, September 25, 2013 - Sysnet Global Solutions announced today that it has partnered with iScan Online to provide acquiring organizations, globally, with new mobile security solutions. Sysnet Global Solutions is a leading provider of Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance management services specializing in PCI DSS and merchant intelligence solutions. iScan Online is pioneering the use of opportunistic BYOD security scanning on any device, anytime, anywhere.
The solution will enable acquiring organizations to embed functionality into their existing mobile payment applications to search for stored payment card data and other vulnerabilities on their merchants' mobile devices. The solution is part of a range of scanning services that are provided as part of the partnership, including a multi-tenant cloud console that provides management of devices, reporting, analysis and visualization of each customer and location. The announcement coincides with iScan and Sysnet's participation in the 2013 PCI North American Community Meeting in Vegas where mobile security is expected to be heavily discussed.
"iScan's success with their mobile scanning solution for enterprises provides a perfect platform to address the rising concerns for the processing of payments on mobile devices. This partnership is a logical evolution of Sysnet's commitment to providing security to the merchant acquiring industry and brings a unique technology to help combat the new threat that mobile processing presents." says Gabriel Moynagh, CEO at Sysnet Global Solutions.
Billy Austin, President and co-founder of iScan Online said "Acquirers are flying blind when it comes to what their mobile merchants' are doing and how secure their mobile devices really are. The Bring Your Own Device paradigm has only made this risk more prevalent because most businesses use their devices for much more than just processing cards. We are excited to partner with Sysnet because they are an innovative security company with world class acquiring industry clients."
The PCI Security Standards Council's North American Community Meeting takes place in Las Vegas from 23rd - 26th September 2013 and provides an exclusive opportunity for attendees to learn firsthand about the upcoming new standards releases, as well as gain insight into other Council programs and standards.
