Press release date: February 27, 2014

HAUPPAUGE, N. Y. -- TransFirst®, a leading provider of transaction processing services and payment enabling technologies, announces that it now offers its merchant clients SmartSAQ, the intuitive, easy-to-use and customizable PCI compliance validation tool from ControlScan, an industry-leading payment security and compliance company.  

SmartSAQ is an interactive cloud-based application that simplifies completion of the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), an annual validation exercise that assists merchants and service providers who are not required to undergo an on-site data security assessment to self-evaluate their compliance with the PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). SmartSAQ guides merchants through a specifically-tailored set of questions that are relevant to their processing environment, which are accompanied by easy-to-understand help-text and pictures that clearly illustrate and explain key concepts.

"TransFirst is pleased to add SmartSAQ to the comprehensive list of products and services we provide to our merchants," says Craig Tieken, Executive Director-Product at TransFirst. "We believe that SmartSAQ will be a helpful PCI compliance tool and improve the merchant experience. The benefits to our merchants include a faster and more accurate completion and validation process that can help save them time and lessen frustration."

SmartSAQ is now fully functional on TransFirst's website, and merchant clients can log into their accounts to get started with their PCI compliance process.
