Vectra provides ASV (Approved Scanning Vendor) Vulnerability Scanning services accredited by the PCI SSC (Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council) through our partner SecurityMetrics. Quarterly ASV Vulnerability Scanning of internet facing systems is a requirement for many organisations to maintain PCI DSS compliance. Even if not required for PCI DSS compliance, regular vulnerability scanning is recommended as good security practice. ASV Vulnerability Scanning is an automated process which validates the security of your internet facing systems and web applications, by scanning for configuration and security weaknesses. The Vectra ASV Vulnerability Scanning service meets the stringent requirements of the PCI SSC (Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council) for PCI DSS compliance.
ASV Scanning Portal
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, or allows scans to be run on an ad-hoc basis when required. The portal provided easy access to the latest scan results as well as historical scan reports. The ASV Vulnerability Scanning Portal also provides an interface to facilitate investigation and resolution of any false positives.
The detailed reports provided as part of the ASV Vulnerability Scanning service are available for download on the portal. The report details any vulnerabilities identified, provide a risk rating together with remediation advice on how these vulnerabilities can be addressed.
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.
