Fortisphere joins Payment Card Industry Security Vendor Alliance

Fortisphere continues to build a reputation as security-focused virtualization vendor: after joining the RSA Security Partner Program last month, the company now applies for the PCI Alliance.

These steps may give a hint about the overall strategy of Fortisphere to differentiate from the growing number of competitors.
