PCI Compliance Overview

Businesses that handle cardholder data are required to comply with standards set by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council, an organization run by the largest credit card brands for the purpose of enhancing payment industry data security. Full compliance with PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) can’t be achieved using a single piece of hardware or software. Maintaining compliance requires a broad-based IT effort, encompassing a secure network, protection of critical data, strong access controls, and other best practices. But securing public-facing web application is a PCI compliance priority for businesses – and xyberShield can help.

  • Monitoring access
