Vermont Systems and Plug’n Pay Technologies partner on PCI solution

Hauppauge, NY – August 27, 2008

Vermont Systems, a leading provider of software and support services for Parks and Recreation Organizations and Plug’n Pay, a leading eCommerce gateway, have teamed up to provide a simple way for Vermont’s customers to comply with the PCI PABP requirements.

“We had initial consultations with PCI (Payment Card Industry) security auditors and determined that subjecting our customers to the PABP (Payment Application Best Practices) requirements would be difficult for them” said Giles Willey, President of Vermont Systems. “We started to look for a way to simplify the entry of sensitive cardholder data that would take the burden of PABP off of our customers and when we spoke with our long time partner Plug’n Pay they had just the solution for us. We found that a lot of gateways did not understand what we were looking for, but Plug’n Pay quickly determined that an ‘external redirect’ would satisfy our PCI needs.”

“The ‘external redirect’ allows the actual entry of the cardholder data to take place on the Plug’n Pay servers and not those where the Vermont Systems software is running,” said Randy Ridings, Vice President of Sales at Plug’n Pay. “Because the Vermont software does not handle or store the cardholder data, the PABP requirements for its customers are greatly reduced. This saves the Vermont customer time and money as they comply with PCI.”

“Plug’n Pay managed to do the coding for this solution in a manner of weeks so we were able to start presenting this simple solution to PABP for our customers as the third quarter of 2008 came to a close” said Mr. Willey. “We are strong supporters of the efforts of PCI to protect cardholder data and the solution we worked out with Plug’n Pay means that our customers will have the security of knowing they are compliant without the annual effort of going through the PABP process.”
