Outsourced QSA program for worry-free PCI Compliance

As a company that accepts credit card payments for your products and services, you must adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). But becoming PCI compliant and maintaining that status can be expensive and complex.  Outsourcing a qualified security assessor (QSA) can help to make PCI compliance more simple and affordable.

Sword & Shield Enterprise Security partners with you through our Virtual Qualified Security Assessor (vQSA) program. The virtual QSA PCI compliance program takes the burden off you. We provide access to our team of expert PCI QSAs, security engineers, technical writers, and more. This comes at a fraction of the cost of hiring full time employees.

QSA Consulting Advantages

The vQSA PCI compliance program alleviates stress and chaos. It is designed to proactively work toward an “always compliant” state. By providing ongoing oversight, this program:

  • Simplifies the process around ROC or SAQ completion,
  • Alerts you to outdated documentation well before your annual review, and
  • Allows you to regularly ask questions and seek expert advice.
