ExoIS and Xbridge Announce PCI Compliance Solution for AS400 Mainframe

Combined offering can de-scope mainframes and green screen applications for compliance with PCI DSS 2.0

Online PR News – 14-May-2012 – San Jose, CA – ExoIS Inc. and Xbridge Systems today announced the launch of a joint venture that will bring true PCI Compliance to mainframes for the first time, without a requirement for compensating controls to get organizations over the hurdle of mainframe compliance.

ExoIS’ Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, PeepSafe, allows organizations that store process or transmit cardholder information to descope internal functions (e-mail, fax, voice, order entry, etc.) and network segments from PCI compliance in a secure portal environment.

Xbridge’s DataSniff product is a patent-pending search technology that allows customers to search for specific and defined sensitive information on AS400 mainframes and other systems. As the world’s only mainframe data discovery solution, it allows automated discovery in both structured and unstructured datasets. DataSniff can be installed and fully functional in minutes, and in less than a week can enable organizations to quantify, qualify, identify, and mitigate the risk associated with all of their mainframe data.

‘We are very excited to be partnering with Xbridge on this initiative. These combined solutions enable any sized merchant to fully de-scope green screen applications whilst ensuring that no residual data remains on the corporate network” said Ruth Xovox, Chief Compliance Strategist at ExoIS and former PCI Board of Advisors member.

“ExoIS brings the best technologies to the data security market with an expertise that far exceeds their competition. Our combined technologies will provide an end to end PCI solution for Fortune 1000 companies that continue to leverage the power of the mainframe” says Patrick Nehrbass, VP of Sales and Marketing at Xbridge Systems.

“I have been involved with many PCI scope reduction solutions over the years,” said Marco Mabante, SVP of Product Development at Element Payment Services, and former member of the PCI Board of Advisors. “Securing a pure retail environment is relatively easy. As I got into more complex payment acceptance environments such as lodging, airlines or call centers, it was never clear how to take the majority of systems out of scope. PeepSafe is the first realistic and most comprehensive solution I’ve seen.”
