Managing data security requires having the right tools. Protocol is dedicated to providing innovative technology. Protocol Nexus helps you maneuver and manage your compliance requirements with ease and efficiency.
Nexus eliminates silos of data by providing a single secure repository for all associated compliance documentation and evidence needed for PCI DSS validation. Validation of third party Service Provider compliance can be intergrated as well on demand or via a customized API schedule.
With PCI DSS requirements now passing a decade since inception, many organizations still rely on the same standard SAQ documents and formats developed over a decade ago for their annual PCI compliance validation. These redundant compliance formats and solutions leave mearchants dependent on unsecure spreadsheets or disjointed security point solutions to manage compliance initiatives and tasks.
While some compliance managment solutions are simply repackaged versions of the same "check-box" focused compliance, Protocol Nexus is different. Nexus is built to provide a smart and innovative framework for organizations of all sizes to effeciently organize, manage and measure all organizational PCI compliance tasks and initiatives.
Just as online tax services changed the tax return industry, Protocol’s Compliance as a Service has revolutionized PCI compliance.
