Get PA-DSS compliant on time and on budget

Comprehensive PA QSA Audits Done Right, The First Time.

You have a great payment application-we'll help you secure it. The goal of SecurityMetrics' Payment Application Qualified Security Assessor (PA-QSA) team isn't just to perform an assessment, but help your business reach compliance with cardholder data security requirements.


QSA Gap Analysis And PA-QSA Remediation Checklist

Our friendly and knowledgeable PA-QSAs review installation network diagrams, cardflow descriptions, and other processes to complete an initial gap analysis of your payment application. Once the possible problem areas have been identified, we provide a detailed checklist of issues that must be addressed before final testing can take place. SecurityMetrics PA-QSA team helps you:

  • Understand PA DSS requirements
  • Meet compliance deadlines to avoid fines
  • Remediate system compliance breakdowns
  • Test processes, software, and documentation for weaknesses
  • Develop secure practices through advice from an experienced PA QSA
  • Validate compliance with PA DSS requirements

Payment Application Assessment

Our innovative audit process combines technical analysis, procedural evaluation, and employee interviews to complete a thorough and comprehensive payment application assessment. A post-test summary report identifies every action item that must be completed before the PA-DSS report can be finalized.

PA DSS Remediation Assistance

We understand that every day your application is stuck in remediation is another day of lost revenue. Our PA-QSAs work with you to fix areas of noncompliance and expedite the retesting process to ensure a timely assessment.

PA DSS Report On Validation (ROV) Review And Submission

Once compliance requirements have been met, SecurityMetrics PA-QSAs write and submit the ROV to the PCI Council. Our PA-QSAs act as your advocate and work directly with the Council to clarify any issues or provide additional information required by the evaluation staff.
