Press release from the issuing company
Toronto ON - Crawford Technologies Inc., the award-winning provider of business solutions to high-volume printing and mailing operations around the world, now provides a PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant archive solution for credit card merchants and the service bureaus that print and mail credit card statements. This addresses the PCI Security Standards Council's Data Security Standard (DSS), which establishes guidelines for not only cardholder data transfer, but also for the static data that exists elsewhere in these organizations' print streams.
Per the standards outlined in the PCI DSS (version 1.2), CrawfordTech has added AES 256 encryption to its Dynamic Document Archive (DDA) product. Once implemented, all key management functions are external to the system and users specify the encryption of archived pages and other resources. CrawfordTech's DDA is the basis for its leading archive solution that is designed expressly for the storage and retrieval of bills, statements and other transactional customer communications. DDA supports statements in AFP, Xerox Metacode, PCL and PDF formats and provides cross system portability between Unix, Windows and z/OS systems.
"We are pleased to be able to work with our PCI clients to ensure that our Archive solution protects the credit cardholder data per the PCI DSS standard", said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies Inc, "We recognize that PCI compliance is relevant not only as the transactions themselves occur, but also in the print stream data itself. PCI compliance is another way, in which our DDA product helps our clients serve their customers better, and further reinforces DDA's position as the leading transaction document industry-specific archive solution."
