MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2012) - ControlCase, a leading provider of compliance, information security and risk management solutions, announced that IQ Information Quality has licensed ControlCase Data Discovery (CDD) to help clients achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) by finding unauthorized or undocumented credit and debit card data within their systems.
IQ Information Quality, located in Bogota, Colombia, provides electronic information security services in the areas of ITIL, ISO 27001, Cobit and PCI DSS. The company was the first Colombian organization to be certified by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) as a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). IQ Information Quality is authorized to assess whether organizations that process, store or transmit sensitive payment card data comply with PCI DSS requirements.
The PCI SSC developed the PCI DSS as a means to reduce the risk of credit card fraud via exposure of sensitive cardholder information. The presence of unknown, unencrypted or prohibited credit card data is the leading cause of card data loss, disclosure and identity theft. Finding and removing this unauthorized or undocumented data is required for businesses to comply with the PCI DSS.
IQ Information Quality will use the CDD product to help clients achieve PCI DSS compliance. CDD is one of the first comprehensive scanners to not only search for credit card data in file systems, but also in commercial and open-source databases. CDD searches for credit card data, including PAN, track data, PINs and CVVs, in file systems, shared drives, databases and removable drives across the user's network, eliminating the need to run separate scans on each computer. The scans can also be set to run on a continuous schedule, providing peace of mind to organizations that they will remain PCI DSS compliant.
"We are thrilled with the broad functionality of CDD," says David Guillermo Angarita of IQ Information Quality. "We can conduct searches quickly and easily. We can search the most popular databases like Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. And we can do it all from one central location, without having to install and maintain agents on each computer our clients may have in their network. CDD allows us to provide an extremely high level of service and value to our clients."
