PCI Scan

PCI DSS ASV Scanning Service

The IT Governance PCI ASV HackerGuardian Scanning Service is a vulnerability assessment scanning solution that can help your organisation achieve and maintain PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance.

Designed to identify website vulnerabilities, the service gives website and network administrators a secure online console to run scheduled scans (up to ten) per quarter across a maximum of five externally facing IP addresses that connect to the credit card acceptance, transmission and storage process or are on key websites. Additional IP packs are available.

Why do I need PCI ASV scans?

For compliance  

Any organisation that accepts or otherwise processes payment card information must comply with the PCI DSS. Regular scans are necessary in order to comply with the Standard’s requirements. 

For increased sales  

PCI DSS-compliant websites that show customers their card details are protected from criminal hackers boost shopper confidence and improve sales. 

To avoid penalties  

Organisations processing payment card data that fail to implement the PCI DSS will be automatically assumed negligent in the event of a payment card data breach, leading to heftier fines and restrictions, and even permanent expulsion from card acceptance programmes.
