Optiv Security Announces SecurePayment@Optiv to Drive Holistic and Risk-Centric Security Across the Entire Payment Lifecycle; Further Helps Organizations Rationalize and Optimize Cyber Security

— Enables Clients Across Retail, Travel, Financial, Healthcare and
Hospitality to Go Beyond PCI Compliance and Achieve Comprehensive
Payment Security —

, the world’s leading security solutions integrator, today
announced SecurePayment@Optiv, an integrated portfolio of services and
technologies that enables organizations to move beyond basic Payment
Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance so they can
implement comprehensive, risk-centric security across the entire payment
lifecycle. This new reference architecture brings together expert
services and leading-edge technologies across application security,
network segmentation, encryption, identity and access management, threat
intelligence, and incident response to deliver fully integrated payment
security solutions for clients. SecurePayment@Optiv
is the latest example of how Optiv helps clients build sustainable,
risk-centric foundations for implementing proactive and measurable
security programs.

“Payment security is the bedrock of today’s digital economy – buyers
need to feel confident their payment data will not be compromised,
regardless if they’re using a credit card, digital wallet, stored
transaction or money transfer,” said Chad Holmes, Optiv’s chief services
and operations officer. “This digital ecosystem requires an evolution in
how merchants think about payment security. As organizations digitally
transform and enable technologies such as mobile payment, they should be
striving for a secure payment lifecycle that tackles business risks,
activates program agility, and meets privacy and segmentation
requirements – while maintaining compliance and optimizing existing
technology investments.

“SecurePayment@Optiv goes beyond PCI compliance with a solution that
builds end-to-end payment security based on each client’s specific risk
profile. This risk-centric approach results in a holistic payment
security program that is designed to reduce risk of payment fraud and
data breaches, and deliver comprehensive security across the entire
payment lifecycle.”

is aligned to provide comprehensive solutions across four dimensions:

  • Risk Profile: The first step to moving beyond PCI is to
    understand the full extent of enterprise risk. Key to this is
    identifying who the most likely attackers are and which assets they
    are most likely to target, which regulations need to be addressed, and
    which systems and processes need to be rationalized and optimized to
    support a high-performance security operation. This information
    enables the creation of a strategic payment security strategy.
  • Point of Sale: Organizations historically have been focused on
    securing credit card transactions. Today’s new security requirements
    are broader and require securing data across the entire payment
    lifecycle, as well as customer loyalty data. Merchants now must
    protect a multitude of potential point-of-sale vulnerabilities across
    credit card readers, Square readers, online payments, digital wallets,
    and more.
  • Cyber Operations: Efficient cyber operations are critical to
    meeting breach disclosure windows and in minimizing the likelihood of
    breaches. These competencies are especially important as payments move
    between consumers, point-of-sale systems, credit card providers and
    issuing banks. A new focus on cyber resilience in addition to data
    protection requires a focus on DevSecOps and product security.
  • Merchant Networks: Protecting against external threats is only
    half of the solution for payment security. Merchants also must protect
    against deliberate and accidental insider threats through strong
    identity and access management, application security, training and
    awareness programs, and more.
