PCI Module Offers Continuum’s MSP Partners New Revenue Stream with PCI Assessment, Remediation and Compliance Services for SMBs

BOSTON – Nov. 2, 2015 – Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, has added a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance Module to its Network Assessment Tool that allows MSPs to easily produce comprehensive PCI risk assessments and offer additional services ranging from one-time to on-going compliance and remediation. As PCI compliance becomes a growing concern among SMBs, MSPs are able to save time and money, performing assessments in a matter of hours as opposed to spending days on-site. Continuum provides network assessment services via RapidFire Tools, Inc., provider of the popular Network Detective technology assessment tool for MSPs.

“There is an opportunity for MSPs to help businesses become PCI compliant, delivering a new revenue opportunity for our MSP partners,” said Mary Crogan, Director, Product Marketing at Continuum. “The PCI Module provides a comprehensive set of reports that demonstrate to clients the depth and quality of MSPs’ services and helps clients to understand their risks. Unlimited use and a low price point mean an opportunity for significant bottom line impact for MSP partners.”

The PCI Compliance Module, from Continuum, provides a “turn-key” solution, differentiated from other solutions because it provides methods, tools and automation that can simplify the process, minimize errors and significantly reduce time and cost. Because much of the network and system data needed is collected automatically, the PCI Module is the fastest and easiest way to perform a PCI compliance assessment and IT audit. But more than just documentation to satisfy a compliance requirement, the assessment provides factual evidence, expert advice and a methodology to help minimize or eliminate the risk of a data breach. Assessment reports can be branded and customized, used to ensure that MSPs and their clients adhere to all PCI Data Security Standards.

Continuum is hosting the webinar, “The Next Big Thing for MSPs - PCI Compliance,” on Thursday, November 5, 2015, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. To register, visit:
