BHMI Completes Certification for Latest PCI PA-DSS Updates

March 18, 2019

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 18, 2019--As part of its ongoing commitment to security for its clients, Baldwin Hackett & Meeks, Inc. (BHMI), a leading provider of enterprise software applications and creator of the Concourse Financial Software Suite™, announced it has completed certification for the latest version of the PCI PA-DSS v3.2 compliance requirements set forth by the PCI Security Standards Council.

The PCI PA-DSS program provides payment software developers with a data standard for creating payment applications that are compliant with the PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Backed and recognized by each of the Payment Card Brands, PCI PA-DSS validated applications, like Concourse, must be designed so that they are in step with the PCI DSS v3.2 guidelines for data centers, thus assuring those data centers will also remain in compliance while using the software. In turn, these standards include such protections as prohibiting vendors from tracking and storing card holder data after authorized transactions, preventing applications from forcing customers to disable security features (like anti-malware software or firewalls), and ensuring vendors use only approved, secure methods when connecting with customers to provide support.

BHMI undergoes this validation each year to ensure its Concourse Financial Software Suite continues to meet the highest level of security compliance. This level of compliance not only protects individual user data, but also helps minimize the potential for security breaches that could ultimately lead to larger, more impactful fraud damage across payment networks and databases.

“BHMI is committed to providing the most powerful, up-to-date and secure back office transaction processing software solution in the industry, tested thoroughly to the highest standards,” stated Dr. Lynne Baldwin, President of BHMI. “We are dedicated to ensuring the Concourse Financial Software Suite will always offer our clients a smooth, flexible solution that will pass the most rigorous compliance scrutiny.”
