ProPay Partners With ControlScan To Provide Compliance Tools To Its Merchants

ProPay®, a TSYS® company, announced today a new partnership with ControlScan ® to provide PCI compliance solutions for small- and medium-sized merchants. ControlScan is an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) of the PCI Council. Together, ProPay and ControlScan will provide merchants with a simple and easy to adopt solution that will help merchants navigate the maze of understanding and achieving PCI compliance.

Complying with PCI DSS can be a daunting task for any merchant — especially for small- to medium-sized merchants. While utilizing products such as ProPay’s ProtectPay ® encryption and tokenization solution can significantly reduce merchant’s PCI DSS burden, all merchants must still comply with the Standard. ProPay and ControlScan will provide the following:
  • PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) that includes step-by-step instructions
  • Thorough scan of merchant’s network if applicable
  • Reporting and Attestation that the merchant is compliant
  • Breach Protection coverage with no deductible

“ProPay is pleased to partner with ControlScan to provide compliance solutions to our merchants and partners," said Greg Pesci, president of ProPay. “For years we’ve been helping our customers achieve compliance with our ProtectPay solution. Our partnership with ControlScan will provide additional tools that will simplify and guide our merchants through the compliance process so they can focus more energy on growing their business.”

“ProPay is well-positioned to help eliminate friction in the way its merchants make payments, receive payments and secure payments," said Joan Herbig, chief executive officer of ControlScan. “ControlScan’s payment security and compliance solutions align well with the ProPay business model, because they adapt to fit individual merchant scenarios.”
