comForte and Knightcraft Technology partner to provide Security Services

comForte 21 GmbH and Knightcraft Technology are pleased to announce that they are teaming up to deliver PCI DSS compliance and security services to HP NonStop customers.

In light of recent high profile payment card data breaches, it has become clear that being compliant is not enough to prevent theft of sensitive information. Often an organization will have been judged to be PCI DSS compliant but will have security vulnerabilities that were not detected by their QSA. In some cases, compensating controls used to protect sensitive data are inadequate, even though they have been accepted by the auditor. This can leave an organization’s system and sensitive data potentially vulnerable to theft or misuse.
Very few QSAs have the expertise on the HP NonStop platform to really know whether an organization’s HP NonStop servers are secure. Compliance tends to be judged based on “ticks in the box” rather than an in-depth analysis.
To assist organizations in both achieving compliance and making sure that their systems are secured in accordance with industry best practices, comForte is offering the following services in partnership with Knightcraft Technology: 

  • HP NonStop server deep dive security review
  • PCI DSS readiness assessment
  • Internal penetration testing and vulnerability assessment


Combining comForte’s deep HP NonStop experience, unique product offering and global reach with Knighcraft’s security and PCI DSS expertise and extensive experience with a wide range of HP partner security products ensures that HP NonStop customers are provided with thorough security review services.
