App Helps Secure Mobile Devices, Reports Security Status To Processor

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Acquirers and ISOs now have a simple way to check merchants' mobile processing security: SecurityMetrics MobileScan, an app created for merchants to identify potential security threats and protect devices through scanning and remediation. Through a quick mobile vulnerability scan, the app inspects many issues known to cause mobile insecurity such as a lack of password polices, Wi-Fi weaknesses, unauthorized peripherals, and known operating system vulnerabilities that may allow cybercriminals access to a merchant's processing device.

SecurityMetrics MobileScan includes acquirer/ISO access to a Merchant Compliance Console that aggregates mobile device compliance results, tracks when vulnerability scans have run, and reports each merchant's mobile device scan status.

The app was built based on a foundation of Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) requirements in order to help mobile Point-of-Sale (mPOS) merchants follow PCI mobile payment acceptance security best practices.

"Though convenient, mobile processing increases liability for both merchants and processing parties," said Wen Free, SecurityMetrics VP of Business Development. "It's only a matter of time before hackers target insecure mobile devices for profitable payment card data."

SecurityMetrics MobileScan, powered by MokiMobility (mokimobility.com), is available today in both Android and iOS app stores. For more information on a MobileScan program for your merchants, or if you're interested in referral program opportunities, please call 801-995-6860.
