    As an integral part of the approval process, Beanstream scans an online
merchant's network for vulnerabilities and other potential sources of
intrusions using the nCircle Certified PCI Scan Service.  Using the certified
PCI report which indicates the merchant's level of security and PCI compliance
status, Beanstream approves the merchant to join its payment network if
compliant, or the merchant can address any identified security risks before
being granted a merchant account to enable e-commerce.
    "It is important for us to ensure that none of our merchants introduce
any security risks that could adversely affect our payment network's
availability when they join our payment network," said Craig Thomson, CEO of
Beanstream. "We are pleased to be working with nCircle, a market leader who
delivers a certified, automated scan service to help us maintain the highest
levels of security and PCI compliance while at the same time accelerating
business growth."
    The nCircle Certified PCI Scan Service, among the first to be certified
under the PCI Data Security Standard v1.1, is a fully automated solution that
enables merchants and service providers of all sizes to cost-effectively
demonstrate compliance with the standard on a quarterly basis.  It is based on
nCircle's enterprise-class, market-leading security risk and compliance
management technology used by more than 3500 customers worldwide to identify,
measure, manage and reduce security risk and automate compliance on their
networks.
    "Beanstream is a payment solutions provider reputed in the industry for
its one-stop delivery of a full suite of e-commerce solutions.  We are excited
to be working with them to ensure the highest levels of security and PCI
compliance as they continue to add more online merchants to their payment
network," said Karl Hutter, Vice President of Business Development at nCircle.
