PCI-SSF is an updated version of PA-DSS, with better support for recent technologies and broader coverage of software and payment platforms. A big advantage of PCI-SSF is its flexibility. When it comes to meeting security requirements, PCI-SSF is flexible about how to satisfy those requirements. It offers various methods that organizations can choose from to suit their needs.
If you develop payment software, you will need to secure it for the sake of protecting your customers and your business. If you currently use PA-DSS, please note that it expires at the end of October 2022 and will be replaced by PCI-SSF. In such situations your business will need to transition from PA-DSS to PCI-SSF.
SD Elements provides the ability to integrate PCI-SSF compliance into your Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). SD Elements helps your team consider and apply the security best practices that PCI-SSF offers while they work on their development projects. This will allow you to meet all necessary payment security requirements by the time your project is complete.
