The Trust Mark
This trust mark is based on the idea that we can show documentation from an ASV that the network has been scanned by an ASV and deemed compliant. If you feel that you have a reputable host and you have a PCI scan within the last 30 days that has documentation of your compliance, you may apply for our TrustMark Only service. This service will allow you to display our trust mark on your website to build credibility and trust with your website users. Hacker Tested is a mark that has credibility with the minds of consumers and as such merchants must follow guidelines to prove their compliance before this mark can be displayed.
The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol has become the universal standard for authenticating websites and for encrypting communications between consumers and Web servers. SSL is built into all major browsers and Web servers. SSL Certificates provide consumers with peace of mind in that a reputable digital certificate company has validated the authenticity of the online company and secured relevant information.

Is it for me?
To put it simply, if you handle credit card data on any level on your website (i.e. your domain name), you will need the security offered by the HACKER TESTED™ service.
What about Hosting?
If your website is hosted with HACKER TESTED™, you will receive all security vulnerability fixes for free as part of the service. If you have your website hosted elsewhere, then you will be given scanning results but cannot receive vulnerability fixes, as we do not have root access to your server to make server changes.
Why the trust mark?
HACKER TESTED™ helps convert your website visitors into buyers by giving them the assurance that your website has been tested for security vulnerabilities. If your website passes PCI DSS compliance, then your website can bear the HACKER TESTED™ logo. This logo will communicate to your users that your website is in compliance with the secuirty standards set by the major credit card companies.
