PCI Compliance

How Does PCI Compliance Make Internet Transactions More Secure?

PCI DSS work together to provide your business with the highest level of security. The DSS component offers external vulnerability scanning to ensure there are no weak areas where potential threats can occur from outside hackers. When accurately implemented, the 12 requirements that must be satisfied before the PCI DSS is enabled creates a multi- layer security shield that makes it more difficult for a hacker to gain access to your customers’ sensitive data. Building trust via a secure platform with your clients can assure you higher conversion rates and positive reviews.

Self-Managed Security Testing

  • Penetration Testing (PEN Test) is a unique tool offered with the purchase of any PCI DDS service. This tool mimics an experienced computer hacker in order to discover if your system can be compromised. A PEN test allows you to schedule network penetration by request and later manage the finding within your portal. Knowing whether your system passed or failed allows you to build a stronger defense and optimal protection for your customers.

Vulnerability Scanning

  • With the new network vulnerability scanning technology, possible threats are made visible inside and outside of your network. Knowing your vulnerability status allows you to take the necessary precautions to stop an attack before it happens.

Around the Clock Monitoring

  • An agent is constantly monitoring your environment to ensure there are no possible security breaches using your external IP address. The system looks for prohibited data such as credit card numbers and tracking data to act on better protecting the data, or deleting it.
