G2 joins PCI Security Standards Council and announces its enhanced Service Provider Sentinel offering, which aims to improve payment data security among a growing landscape of largely unsecure service providers.
Bellevue, WA, July 18, 2012 – G2 Web Services, LLC, the recognized leader in e-commerce risk management, today announced its enhanced Service Provider Sentinel offering, a combination of technology, accelerated human analysis, and G2’s proprietary merchant map that enables acquiring banks to more quickly address and mitigate the growing risk of unregistered service providers. Service providers are entities that offer services to merchants that may control or impact the security of cardholder data. Acquiring banks often do not know which service providers their merchants are using, whether they are secure, or if they are properly registered with the card networks. All these factors pose great risk to acquiring banks for costly and brand-damaging data breaches and account data compromise.
