TSI Receives Qualified Integrator & Reseller (QIR) Qualification from PCI Security Standards Council
By Roger Murray | September 22nd, 2016
The topic of retailer data breaches is a trending theme among businesses and customers, largely due in part to the attention it has received from the press and media reports. It is why TSI, a company committed to keeping our clients’ payment card data secure and protected, chose to become a Qualified Integrator & Reseller (QIR). The QIR program was designed to provide the guiding principles and procedures for a secure installation as well as continued maintenance of validated payment applications that support your PCI DSS compliance efforts.
The challenge most businesses who accept credit card payments encounter is finding a reliable provider that is qualified to help you reach optimal compliance. After all, most breaches are a direct result of incorrect installation and/or poor maintenance of payment application systems, which in turn creates easy opportunities for networks to be compromised.
What the certification means to you, a business owner, is that we adhere to the best practices under the PCI Data Security Standard for protecting important financial data as it passes through the Point of Sale (POS) system we install. It also provides confidence to the customers who are using your products or professional services, that you are working with a qualified and trusted company who is a distinguished solution provider.
