nCircle Enriches Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) Program With PCI Compliance Solution

    Expanded program enables MSSP partners to cost-effectively monitor
    compliance with the PCI standard using nCircle's certified technology

    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22 /CNW/ -- nCircle, the leading provider of
agentless security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced
that it has expanded its nAble MSSP Partner Program to include Payment Card
Industry (PCI) compliance solutions.  The expanded program enables MSSP
partners to increase their revenue by offering a number of managed services to
help their customers cost-effectively monitor and comply with the industry
standard using certified, best-of-breed technology.
    Using nCircle's certified PCI scanning technology -- one of the first to
be certified under the updated PCI standard, version 1.1 -- MSSPs can offer
their customers an easy-to-use, fully automated scan service to help meet the
quarterly compliance validation requirements of the standard.  Basing their
PCI scanning service on nCircle's proven, certified technology provides MSSPs
with multiple options to address merchant compliance. MSSPs may either advise
their merchant customers to use the nCircle Certified PCI Scan Service(TM) or
operate nCircle's PCI scanning technology from their own network operations
center to offer a branded certified service.
    Additionally, MSSP partners may deploy and integrate other nCircle PCI
solutions in their network operations center to profile, report on and
prioritize remediation of a customer's entire payment network in preparation
for an audit, saving customers ongoing operational and audit costs while
improving network security risk and compliance.
    "The expansion of nCircle's nAble Partner Program enables MSSPs to take
advantage of a market that presents a significant growth opportunity," said
Robert McGowan, Director of Business Development at nCircle. "Using nCircle's
PCI solutions, our MSSP partners can offer a simple, cost-effective quarterly
compliance validation service to merchants or combine them with continuous
security risk monitoring and remediation to deliver a robust range of services
to ensure comprehensive compliance with the PCI standard."
    The nCircle nAble Partner Program offers MSSPs the leading security risk
and compliance management solutions used by more than 4000 customers worldwide
to improve network security risk and compliance.  nCircle also provides
enterprise-class support offering as part of the program. Additionally, MSSP
partners benefit from nCircle's investment in the industry's largest security
research and development team -- currently providing the most comprehensive
coverage with over 14,000 distinct operating system, application,
configuration conditions and vulnerabilities.
    "nCircle uniquely enables MSSPs to offer complete customer lifecycle
management -- including managed services, onsite audit capability and various
configurations of data-at-customer solutions," said Gus Malezis, Vice
President of Worldwide Sales at nCircle. "Combined with unmatched deployment
and integration flexibility, nCircle is the only vendor with this breadth of
offerings equipping MSSPs to deliver security risk and compliance management
solutions to their customers, to cost-effectively improve network security
risk and compliance."
