Tenable strengthens payment card system security and enables faster threat response for retail operations, merchants and service providers
Tenable Network Security, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, announced today a new solution that continuously monitors Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance posture for improved visibility and enhanced security for retail operations, merchants and service providers.
“Organizations, from big retailers to credit card payment processors, are targeted daily by cybercriminals because of the large amount of sensitive data passing through their networks and point-of-sale systems,” said Dave Cole, chief product officer, Tenable Network Security. “Retailers can minimize the likelihood of a breach by integrating continuous PCI compliance monitoring into their overall security strategy, but too many organizations view PCI as a burden and treat compliance like a once-a-year project. The new Tenable Continuous PCI Compliance Monitoring solution eases that burden by transforming compliance from a once-a-year occurrence to a fundamental building block of a successful and continuous security program.”
Tenable delivers comprehensive security for retail organizations and service providers through continuous monitoring, centralized data intelligence and purpose-built PCI dashboards and Assurance Report Cards (ARCs) to help meet PCI requirements.
Through a combination of active vulnerability assessments, intelligent connectors, passive listening and host data logging, organizations gain increased visibility into all devices across enterprise-wide environments, including physical, virtual, mobile and cloud, to enhance compliance and more quickly identify threats. Additional automation and anomaly detection helps users track and manage the entire PCI security program from a central location.
“Simply demonstrating compliance doesn’t prevent breaches,” said Cole. “Tenable makes it easy for security teams to deploy a comprehensive security program to adhere to compliance requirements, but more importantly, to better protect customer data from breach and theft on an ongoing basis.”
