NYC-based eMazzanti Technologies has completed high-level retail data security training to prevent retail point-of-sale (POS) data theft. eMazzanti is currently one of only seven companies worldwide to be qualified as a PCI Qualified Integrator under the stringent certification standards of the PCI Security Standards Council Qualified Integrators and Resellers (QIR) program.
In the wake of numerous merchant POS breaches, the QIR program was launched in late 2012 to strengthen point-of-sale security. Stephen W Orfei, General Manager of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, said the QIR Program takes aim at one of the most vulnerable security points in the payments chain, the point of sale.
To earn the QIR qualification, two eMazzanti Technologies employees received specialized training and qualification on the secure installation and maintenance of validated payment applications into merchant environments with an emphasis on supporting client’s PCI DSS compliance efforts. Successful completion of the training and testing at a certified testing center earned eMazzanti a place on the PCI SSC global list of QIR Companies, a trusted resource for merchants to select PCI approved partners.
Earlier this year, eMazzanti was named as the first WatchGuardOne Platinum Partner and joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a Participating Organization. The IT consulting firm will work with the Council to improve payment data security worldwide through the ongoing development of the PCI Security Standards.
