Security experts help organizations meet new Payment Card Industry requirements by simulating attacks

Minneapolis, MN, October 27, 2015—HelpSystems, a leading provider of systems management, business intelligence, and security solutions, today announced the availability of penetration testing for IBM i. This new service helps businesses uncover security vulnerabilities that attackers could exploit to access sensitive data. Penetration testing is also required by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as of June 30, 2015.

Carol Woodbury, renowned security expert and Vice President of Global Security Services at HelpSystems, leads a team of professional ethical hackers in performing real-world attack simulations, revealing security risks that could result in a damaging data breach. This proactive approach to data threats allows vulnerabilities to be remedied before they’re exploited.

“IBM i has long enjoyed a reputation for first-class security, but many organizations—including ones affected by PCI—fail to fully utilize the security features included on the platform,” said Woodbury. “What’s unique about penetration testing is that it involves highly skilled security professionals examining your systems for security gaps and attempting to exploit them.”

“With the expansion of PCI DSS, demand for penetration testing services is growing. It’s a must-have for many organizations,” said Chris Heim, CEO, HelpSystems. “Our team of security professionals has the knowledge and expertise to provide great value to customers concerned with protecting their business-critical data, as well as passing compliance audits.”
