American Bancard Protects Merchant Data With StillSecure's Suite for Layered Network Security

Safe Access, VAM and Strata Guard Help Secure Merchant Information and Comply With PCI Requirements

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure solutions, today announced that American Bancard, the fastest growing merchant services provider in the country, is using the StillSecure suite for layered network security. Deploying the StillSecure suite enables American Bancard to better secure and protect their business, and comply with the PCI Data Security Standard. The StillSecure suite includes Safe Access®, a network access control solution; VAM®, a vulnerability management platform; and Strata Guard®, a network-based IDS/IPS.

American Bancard processes nearly one billion dollars a year in merchant transactions. Merchants include retailers, restaurant operators, service providers, hotel and lodging businesses, Internet e-commerce marketers, and mail/phone order businesses. A lot of their data, including sensitive financial information, is housed by American Bancard.

"Security is a priority at American Bancard because our merchants rely on us to shield their data from attack, and the StillSecure suite provides the perfect combination of functionality and ease-of-use," said Steve Scop, CTO, American Bancard. "Our challenge is to provide the highest level of protection with the resources we have available. The StillSecure suite is one of the most intuitive set of products I've ever deployed; within hours we were up and running and protecting our systems."

"We're pleased that American Bancard has chosen to deploy the StillSecure suite because it includes a strong mix of proactive and reactive security measures to effectively lock down the entire network," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. "Customers who deploy the suite often benefit most because our products work together as well as with third party systems such as patch managers and trouble ticketing systems to share and act on data."
