Tevora Announces Visa QPASC Certification
LOS ANGELES, CA – April 19, 2007 –Tevora Business Solutions, Inc., a leading IT security consulting firm, announced today their recent certification as a Qualified Payment Application Security Company (QPASC).
The QPASC certification by Visa authorizes Tevora to perform Payment Application Best Practices (PABP) audits. The specialized audits are required by Visa from payment application vendors because they validate that the payment application complies with industry best practices.
“This elite certification is a perfect fit for Tevora and a given addition to our security practice aimed at the Payment Card Industry,” said Nazy Fouladirad, Marketing Director for Tevora Business Solutions. “This certification qualifies our company to perform PAPB audits for various application vendors ensuring that they are in full compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard.”
As a Qualified Payment Application Security Company in good standing with Visa, Tevora can help vendors achieve and demonstrate compliance. The certification, which is incorporated into the Cardholder Information Security Program, is intended to protect Visa cardholder data and ensure that secure payment applications minimize the potential for security breaches and the damaging fraud resulting from these breaches.
“When companies buy software applications that store, process, or transmit cardholder data, they want assurance that their customers personal and account information is safe,” Ray Zadjmool, President and CEO of Tevora Business Solutions, Inc. explained. “We work closely with application vendors from around the world and are able to analyze, remediate, and assess adherence to the PCI Data Security Standards in an efficient cost-effective manner.”
Compliance validation must be provided by payment application vendors to Visa as a means of ensuring that the company has adhered to the PCI Data Security Standards.
“By complying with the PCI Data Security Standards payment application vendors not only meet their obligations but also build a culture of security that benefits everyone,” Zadjmool said. “We are happy to be able to add this elite certification to our roster of services.”
