First Data and Trustwave to Join Force on Information Security Services

23/06/2014 by


Trustwave and First Data are working together to offer information security services.

In a release, the Company noted businesses that use First Data payment processing services will have access to a new solution delivered through Trustwave’s cloud-based TrustKeeper platform.

The service will provide access to information security services.

“Our collaboration demonstrates that PCI compliance is the ground floor for security and businesses need additional security services that help them go beyond PCI compliance and protect customer and payment card data from a compromise,” said Doug Klotnia, General Manager of Compliance and Risk Management at Trustwave. “This entirely new approach emphasizes security and protection of sensitive data while simplifying the complex compliance process.”

Trustwave and First Data plan to offer:

-Malware and Anti-Virus Protection – uses a combination of signatures and behavioral analysis to help protect systems from viruses and other malware.

-File Integrity Monitoring – scans critical systems and components for changes that may be caused by a data breach or malware.

-Unauthorised Device Alerting – informs businesses about unauthorised devices, workstations and servers connected to their network.

-Payment Card Data Storage Scanning – verifies that payment card data is not being stored unencrypted.

-Security Configuration Monitoring – verifies that basic security controls are configured properly.
