Comodo Updates Painless PCI Partner Program
Program Designed to Help Produce New Revenue Streams for Merchants and ISOs and Simplify the PCI Compliance Process
Clifton, NJ, March 18, 2015 — The Comodo organization, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions, today launched a new Painless PCI Partner Program which makes the process for making merchants PCI DSS 3.0 compliant and protected easier, and helps create new revenue streams – all backed with the strength of Comodo security offerings.
The Comodo Painless PCI Partner Program is open to merchants, independent sales organizations (ISOs), acquirers, payment processors and other payment industry agents. The Program helps eliminate the risk and complexity of completing the PCI compliance process, saving merchants time and money while letting Comodo partners focus on their core competencies. Comodo is Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council certified and an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), uniquely positioned to help merchants attain PCI compliance.
“At Comodo, we do a lot of business with merchants to encrypt their online transactions with our highly secure and robust technology – so we understand how merchants operate and their pain points when it comes to PCI compliance,” said Robert Gersten, Principal Director, ISOs and Acquirers, Comodo. “Merchants, acquirers, ISOs are all looking for an affordable solution provider, dedicated service and a security brand they can truly trust. Our Painless PCI Program packages all of that value, passes it to the partners, who in turn retain more satisfied merchants, which is a win-win for all.”
How the Painless PCI Partner Program Works
Painless PCI includes a web-based registration with simple step-by-step merchant guidance for completing the PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), which is critical for achieving compliance. The partner program includes free access to the newly launched PCI Control Center, which lets partners keep track of their merchant’s compliance activities through a PCI management portal. The portal automatically displays SAQs and PCI vulnerability scan results in an easy-to-use dashboard.
The program also allows Comodo partners to outsource PCI compliance to a trusted third party saving time and money in addition to generous revenue sharing opportunities. Merchants will receive free live support, while partners will enjoy zero costs to join and access to discounts on the expansive Comodo security portfolio.
Partners can leverage Comodo’s security solutions to offer additional products and services at affordable discounts. These include penetration testing, SSL encryption, malware scanning, PCI scanning, secure DNS, email security, endpoint security, back-up breach coverage and merchant live PC support.
