The PCI SSC developed the PA-DSS based upon the Visa Payment Application Best Practices (PABP) to direct software vendors to create and maintain secure payment applications to reduce vulnerability of merchants and minimize data breaches. Compliance with the PA-DSS is determined based upon data and information developed by an evaluation of the application by a Payment Application Qualified Security Assessor approved by the PCI SSC. Today the adherence to PCI DSS is mandatory for banks, processing centers, financial organizations and merchants working with payment brands.
