Ensuring PCI DSS Compliance
Quarterly Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) Vulnerability Scanning of internet facing systems is a requirement to maintain PCI DSS compliance, for most companies. Even if it’s not a PCI DSS requirement for you, regular scanning is good security practice.
Vectra’s ASV Vulnerability Scanning is an automated process which validates the security of your internet facing systems and web applications. Throughout this process, Vectra will scan for weaknesses in your data security. Vectra’s ASV security services are conducted through our partner SecurityMetrics. You can rest assured they meet the stringent requirements of the PCI SSC for PCI DSS compliance.
Vectra’s ASV Vulnerability Scanning service is accessed by a web-based portal. The portal allows an organisation to easily configure automated quarterly scans as required by PCI DSS requirement 11.2.2. It also allows for scans to be run on an ad-hoc basis when required.
The portal provides easy access to the latest scan results and keeps all historical scan reports.
Vectra’s ASV Scanning Portal also provides an interface to facilitate investigation and resolution of any false positives.
The detailed reports provided as part of our ASV services are available for download on the portal.
These scans are comprehensive and will:
- Identify security weaknesses
- Provide a risk rating
- Remediation advice
The ASV scanning service is supported by a local Australian based Service Desk. Our Service Team are able to provide technical support and remote administration of the service and track and monitor any disputed scan results.
