Breach Upgrades Appliance To Target PCI Compliance

Carlsbad-based Breach Security said earlier this week that it has updated its WebDefend web application security appliance, to make it easier for companies to meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. PCI standards are the new requirements that the credit card industry is rolling out to secure e-commerce providers, to ensure that card numbers are not stolen or compromised. According to Breach Security, the upgraded software now ensures that credit card numbers and data cannot be displayed anywhere within the software, including in audit logs or management console. Breach also said the upgraded software now detects phishing attacks on websites, as well as prevention of "image leeching" used to steal images or in phishing attacks.
