StillSecure Joins PCI Security Standards Council as Newest Participating Organization

StillSecure to Participate in Key Standards Setting Body Protecting Payment Cardholder Data

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - November 19, 2007) - StillSecure®, creator of secure network infrastructure software, announced today that it has joined the PCI Security Standards Council as a new participating organization. As a Participating Organization, StillSecure will work with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.

The PCI DSS, endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc., requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data integrity. More information on the council and the standard can be found at www.pcisecuritystandards.org.

As a Participating Organization, StillSecure will now have access to the latest payment card security standards from the Council, be able to provide feedback on the standards, and become part of a growing community that now includes more than 345 organizations. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, adhering to the PCI DSS represents an entity's best protection against data criminals. By joining as a Participating Organization, StillSecure is adding its voice to the process.

"As a PCI Security Standards Council Participating Organization, StillSecure is playing a key role in helping protect cardholder data," said Bob Russo, General Manager, PCI Security Standards Council. "Data security is an increasingly important component of any business plan and we are delighted to welcome those organizations dedicated to card payment security."

"Many of StillSecure's customers come to us because they're faced with PCI DSS compliance yet they are unsure of the kinds of security measures to put in place," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. "Our work with the PCI Security Standards Council helps us gain additional expertise so that we can become a trusted security advisor and help our customers build a holistic approach to becoming and remaining PCI compliant."
