PCI website scanning is an extremely important part of operating an eCommerce website and also PCI Compliance. PCI scanning is not only important to show your credit card processors that you operate your eCommerce site in a secure environment, it is useful to show potential customers that they can trust their credit card information with you. Face it, almost anyone can setup an eCommerce site, but not everyone can show their customers that they run a secure operation. Utropicmedia has reviewed several PCI scanning vendors and think Trust Guard is the best choice. They sell PCI scanning services like other companies but what sets them apart, besides their lower prices, is that they have other products to show your customers that you are serious about security.
Trust Guard gives you site seals to display your website’s compliance with the strict “PCI server security” requirements. Other site seals verify your business operations, & privacy policies all of which help to earn your customers’ trust and help with conversion rates.
The true value of PCI really boils down to two things; your customers perception of your website’s security, and your Return on Investment (ROI). When your customers see that your website has advanced security measures in place to protect them, they have much more confidence and trust in your website, and are more likely to buy from you, which in turn increases your ROI. In nearly every case, the return is far more than it ever costs for the service.
So whether you have been directed by your credit card processing company to become PCI compliant or you are looking to increase salse by giving your customer’s a secure shopping environment, we recommend Trust Guard PCI vulnerability analysis. The service scans for over 30,000 vulnerabilities. If you are starting a new eCommerce website or run an existing site you can save time by not having to fix your server or setup a PCI compliant server by using one of Utropicmedia’s PCI-compliant VAS platform: managed & dedicated servers.
[...] SAQ validation type 1 does not require PCI compliant web hosting, however it may be necessary to complete the SAQ-A if your credit card processor requires it. Additionally, if you qualify for type 1 validation you will not be required to obtain quarterly PCI vulnerability scans. [...]
