ExoIS and Quarri Announce Strategic Partnership to Fully Address PCI Compliance

Quarri Technologies and ExoIS Inc. today announced that they have partnered to launch their complementary offerings, Protect On Q™ (POQ) and PeepSafe® in a single solution to the North American and European markets. This new, integrated solution provides secure browser technology access through the PeepSafe secure portal for simplified, end-to-end compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The combined PeepSafe and POQ solution can help organizations easily and cost-effectively reduce the scope of their PCI self-assessment requirements down to SAQ A, the level for organizations with no electronic storage, processing or transmission of cardholder data. The solution ensures that no cardholder data enters the corporate network and secures all data that is viewed via browsers from malware and malicious or unauthorized use and replication.

“Companies who accept, transmit or process payment cards are consistently looking for solutions that will reduce the scope of their PCI audit,” said Avivah Litan, distinguished analyst and vice president at Gartner Research. “Removing all electronic cardholder data from corporate networks and securing the payment card data processing has and will continue to be a successful strategy for achieving this goal.”

“We are very excited to partner with Quarri and offer a unique solution to completely de-scope any sized merchant at a fraction of the cost of traditional compliance,” said Ruth Xovox, chief compliance strategist at ExoIS and former PCI Board of Advisors member.

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.

“Based on its innovative portal approach to simplifying PCI compliance for organizations, ExoIS is an ideal partner for Quarri,” said Bill Morrow, CEO and executive chairman of Quarri Technologies. “We look forward to leveraging our partnership and shared commitment to protecting organizations’ most critical data to help companies more efficiently and effectively achieve PCI compliance.”

Quarri’s Protect On Q (POQ) is the only on demand web information security solution that controls and protects users’ browser session content from theft or data leakage by malware and end users. POQ is delivered on-the-fly when end users log in, providing zero-hour malware defense against keylogging, frame grabbing, cache mining and other attacks. POQ ensures privacy by encrypting session data and protects against session hijacking by controlling all browser networking.

ExoIS and Quarri will offer each other’s solutions effective immediately. For additional information and pricing, please contact ExoIS at [email protected] or Quarri at [email protected].
