Content Monitoring has been specifically tuned to meet the needs of standard card brand reporting. SecureTrust Content Monitoring supports specific standards, such as the Visa Global Brand Protection Program (GBPP) and the Mastercard Merchant Monitoring Program (MMP).

You can combine it with the Custom Monitoring service to search for your specific requirements.

The Content Monitoring process features a multi-tier analysis workflow that creates a special queue for any sites suspected of containing sensitive data. These sites are isolated for real-time review by Trustwave’s senior analysts. From there, the sites undergo detailed review and escalation for Quality Assurance (QA) of the results along with reporting back to you when necessary. This helps eliminate false positives and expedites timely alerts to you. You can also specify direct reporting to the card brand if you like for satisfaction of MMP and other programs.
