SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE (AMEX: GSB), leading the market in the integration of Managed File Transfer and Wide Area File Services technologies, today announced the company has been accepted as a Participating Organization of the PCI Security Standards Council.
The PCI Security Standards Council develops, maintains and promotes the adoption of the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) - a set of best practices for the payment industry. The PCI DSS enhances data security and proactively protects customer account information at all points in the payment process - processing, transmission and storage.
"The PCI Data Security Standards provides necessary steps for companies to safeguard their customers' data," said Bob Russo, general manager of the PCI Security Standards Council. "Security is everyone's responsibility, and organizations recognize that protecting consumers' personal information is the right thing to do. Organizations that join and participate in the Council can help us to get the message out in the market and drive further adoption."
"We view our acceptance as a member of the PCI Standards Council in the highest regard; we see it as a natural extension of our core strength and mission of protecting private and confidential data," said Ellen Ohlenbusch, VP of Marketing at GlobalSCAPE.
