The solution integrates a profiling tool that users must answer to ensure they stay on track with PCI DSS requirements.
Barclaycard has teamed up with security assessor and a scanning vendor Sysnet Global Solutions to help its UK clients comply with new card payment regulations.
The Data Security Manager is supposed to help Barclaycard’s customers comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) regulations designed to enhance the security of payment data and transactions.
Barclaycard and Sysnet said the solution integrates a profiling tool that users must answer to ensure they stay on track with PCI DSS requirements.
Features include a Barclaycard-branded online portal that guides merchants through the compliance process, a help programme and a data security helpdesk to assist businesses with questions on the validation process and PCI DSS.
Cheryl Morgan, payment security manager at Barclaycard, said: "This has been a collaborative process and we’re delighted that Barclaycard Data Security Manager is leading the way in providing all the tools and support necessary to help smaller businesses manage their PCI DSS compliance and help us to achieve our goal as being the ‘go to’ bank for payment acceptance."
Gabriel Moynagh, CEO at Sysnet Global Solutions, added: "The solution we have delivered makes it easy for merchants to understand and meet their PCI requirements, but also ensures that they take the steps necessary to protect their business."
Sysnet, which launched its first compliance management solution programme in 2008, helps organisations around the world to manage their PCI compliance requirements.
