PCI-DSS Compliance Services

Comply with PCI-DSS requirements simply, efficiently, and with little overhead.

What is PCI-DSS?

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a minimum set of technical and organizational requirements designed to help businesses protect customers’ cardholder data against fraud through robust payment security measures. PCI-DSS is enforced by the founding members of the PCI Council: American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard and Visa Inc.

How we Can Help you Comply with PCI-DSS

A recurring security assessment of your systems and processes is one of the key controls mandated by PCI-DSS for card data protection. Requirement 11 of the standard emphasizes the need for organizations to perform internal and external penetration test at least once a year or following any major infrastructure changes.

Our PCI-DSS services help you meet PCI-DSS requirements by identifying vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Our PCI tests will reveal real opportunities that hackers could use to compromise payment terminals, payment software, firewalls, and much more.

6. Develop and maintain secure systems and applications.

Implement Secure Access Control Measures

7. Restrict access to cardholder data on a need-to-know basis.

8. Encrypt cardholder data that is transmitted across public networks.

9. Restrict physical access to cardholder data.

PCI-DSS Penetration Testing Requirements

PCI DSS Requirement 6.1
Meet the 6.1 requirement by establishing a process to identify security vulnerabilities in your internal and external applications, by using reputable outside sources for security vulnerability information, and assign a risk ranking (for example, as ‘high,’ ‘medium,’ or ‘low’) to newly discovered security vulnerabilities.
PCI DSS Requirement 6.2
In order to fulfill the 6.2 requirement, you must ensure that all software and system components are protected from known vulnerabilities by installing the applicable security patches provided by the supplier. You must install the patches within the first month following their release.
PCI DSS Requirement 11.3.1
The 11.3.1 requirement requires the realization of external penetration tests at least once a year and after any significant changes or upgrades to the infrastructure / application (for example, upgrading the system, adding a subnet or web server to the environment, etc.).
PCI DSS Requirement 11.3.2
The 11.3.2 requirement requires the completion of internal penetration tests at least once a year and after any change or upgrade significant infrastructure or the application (for example, upgrade of the operating system or adding a subnet or web server in the environment).
PCI DSS Requirement 11.3.3
The 11.3.3 requirement mandates that the vulnerabilities found during the tests are corrected and that additional testing are be performed until the vulnerabilities have been corrected.
PCI DSS Requirement 11.3.4
If segmentation is used to isolate the CDE from other networks, the 11.3.4 requirement mandates a penetration test at less once a year and following modification of the methods / controls of segmentation to verify that the Segmentation methods are operational and effective.

Frequently Asked Questions
About PCI-DSS Compliance

Do you have more questions?   Read our FAQ →

Absolutely! Our services will provide evidence, through a technical report and an official attestation, that you have identified and successfully fixed any exploitable vulnerabilities within card processing systems and your external infrastructure, allowing your organization to comply with the PCI-DSS 11.3.x requirements.

The PCI DSS security requirements apply to all system components included in or connected to an organization’s cardholder data environment (CDE). This encompasses all systems, networks, devices, applications and databases that handle, transmit and process sensitive data.

Data that needs to be protected includes Primary Account Number, Cardholder Name, expiration date and service code.

Sensitive authentication data includes full track data (magnetic stripe data or equivalent on a chip) and CAV, CVC, CVV and CID numbers, PINS and PIN blocks.

According to the PCI-DSS standards, merchants and providers are permitted to store cardholder data once they become compliant. Some acquirers may permit sensitive authentication data to be stored but only prior to payment authorization.
