Application validation and consulting services.

Demonstrate the security of your payment application.

The PCI PA-DSS program was launched in 2008 to aid merchants in selecting, installing, and operating applications that securely handle cardholder data. As the PA-DSS program transitions to retirement in 2022, the new Software Security Framework (SSF) program has now launched, which will support additional application types as well as separate assessments for software lifecycle (Secure SLC) and code (Secure Software).

As a PA-QSA and SSF Assessor company, ControlScan performs application validation services for software vendors and eligible applications: Point-of-sale (POS) platforms; payment switches and gateway software; back office; middleware; automated fuel dispensers; forecourt controllers; kiosk applications; online shopping carts; ATM software; and more.

Our security consulting team is equipped to provide advisory and assessment services to help your organization address the challenges of PCI PA-DSS and SSF. This includes application validation and consulting services to list your payment application with PCI and/or to communicate your security—and corresponding compliance scope impact—to your market.
