TriSource Solutions Announces Strategic Partnership With ControlScan

PCI Compliance Offerings Available Through ControlScan Provide TriSource Solutions' ISOs and Agents With Comprehensive Program for PCI Compliance Management

DAVENPORT, IA and ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - TriSource Solutions (, a full-service merchant processing company for Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs), Independent Sales Agents (Agents), Merchant Level Salespeople (MLS) and Agent Banks, has joined with ControlScan (, an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) certified by the Payment Card Industry, to help its customers manage PCI Compliance programs for retail and e-commerce merchants.

"ControlScan's comprehensive PCI Compliance solution makes it easier for our merchants to work through the PCI compliance process," said Michael Cottrell, vice president, business development, TriSource Solutions. "By resolving confusion around meeting PCI compliance standards at the merchant level, and simplifying the compliance process, our partnership with ControlScan enables our ISOs and agents to focus on new merchant acquisition, instead of managing a cumbersome PCI process."

Through TriSource Solutions' ISOs and agents, merchants now have access to ControlScan's leading PCI compliance solution, which includes on-demand security scanning and the PCI Toolkit. The PCI Toolkit takes merchants through an automated Self-Assessment Questionnaire, answering only the questions relevant to them, in easy to understand language. And since smaller merchants have limited resources, ControlScan provides a personal level of service, working with merchants every step of the way so that it's easy for them to get the help they need.

"We are excited to be working with TriSource Solutions in this partnership. TriSource's commitment to providing its ISOs and agents with ControlScan's PCI compliance solution will undoubtedly reduce their risk and help their businesses grow, as they are providing a service-based approach to assist merchants," said Jethro Felton, executive vice president, sales and business development, ControlScan. "Our collective goal is to help the TriSource merchant community become secure, thereby assuring that they meet all private and public regulatory requirements."
