ControlScan is the managed security service provider that delivers single-source cybersecurity solutions to the small and medium enterprise (SME). With more than 15 years serving SMEs, we understand the challenge of maintaining IT security and PCI compliance when that’s not the company’s core business. Therefore, we cultivate the very best people, processes and technology partnerships and pass along their benefits to our customer base.

Our mission is to ensure that each of our customers is thoroughly equipped to protect their business from cybercrime. To accomplish this, we provide traditional managed security services such as UTM firewall, vulnerability scanning, etc., as well as advanced services for 24×7 security threat detection and response. Our security-as-a-service (SECaaS) delivery model gives the SME cost-effective access to the same cybersecurity services and technologies as their larger counterparts.

ControlScan is also well known for our ability to expertly guide businesses of every size through the PCI compliance process. More than 155 merchant services partners and 1.8 million businesses rely on our efficient, user-friendly PCI 1-2-3 program to manage risk and compliance. In addition, the ControlScan Security Consulting Services team provides a range of PCI-related services such as qualified security assessments, gap analyses, penetration and web app testing, P2PE and PIN security services, and more.

At ControlScan, we have our customers’ backs by practicing these core operating values: 1. Drive Customer Success (customers are first, help them win, commit to success and quality), 2. Put Team First (make every decision for the greater good, trust in and empower others, look for the win-win), 3. Move Fast (act with urgency, be nimble, focus on what’s important), 4. Be Transparent (communicate openly and honestly, be accessible and respectful, act with integrity), 5. Have Fun (celebrate success, have a positive attitude, be yourself).

How we are different

• ControlScan focuses on the small and medium enterprise (SME) because this is an underserved market that needs the most assistance with people, processes and technology for better cybersecurity. We are the SME champion, focusing on cybersecurity so our customers can focus on running their business, not securing it.
• ControlScan is the only managed security service provider that takes a holistic approach to cybersecurity and compliance, helping businesses avoid siloed processes that can negatively impact overall security posture. This year, ControlScan achieved multiple new industry certifications to further serve our customer base. New certifications include Verifone Managed Network Service Provider (MNSP), to reduce convenience retailers’ breach risk; QSA(P2PE), to validate point-to-point encryption solutions and components for PCI compliance; and Qualified PIN Assessor (QPA), for performing security assessments against PIN payment environments. In addition, a growing number of ControlScan employees earned CISSP, Network+ and Security+ certifications.
• The ControlScan team is consistently developing new services to bolster our technology stack and ensure that our customers’ needs are holistically met. Recent enhancements include offering our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services to businesses using Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, and other cloud-based SaaS and PaaS applications/services; introducing PaySafe PumpConnect, to increase security and payment transaction speeds at fuel pumps; and advancing our Endpoint Security Service, to provide even greater detection and response capabilities.
