RapidFire Tools Inc. launched its newest Network Detective module earlier this week in an effort to fill a market gap and offer additional profit opportunities for MSPs.
The Network Detective PCI Compliance module, as with all other RapidFire modules, fits within the Network Detective Framework and serves a unique part of the IT industry.
The PCI world is increasing in complexity and strength, CEO Mike Mittel said, and RapidFire’s product will allow MSPs to serve an estimated 95 percent of retailers subject to PCI compliance data security standards with its ability to non-invasively collect data, complete analysis and create holistic reports.
“As we move forward in the development of new modules for Network Detective, we are always in search of the most lucrative market opportunities for our MSP and IT service provider subscribers,” Mittel said. “The merchant services marketplace has undergone significant evolution since establishment of the PCI Data Security Standard. Many of the affected retailers need to leverage technology to catch up with these standards. If a merchant is found non-compliant, they could be subject to business-killing fines, or even lose their ability to accept credit and debit cards. There is a pent-up demand for PCI Compliance risk assessments as a service, and the Network Detective reports delivers concrete value. The new Network Detective PCI Compliance module opens a whole new avenue of profits for the managed service provider.”
MSPs will be able to provide PCI assessment, remediation and compliance services with the PCI Compliance module, and the yearly subscription fee means MSPs can run as many reports as needed, giving chances to offer free or reduced-price prospecting and audit preparation services.
