BI.ZONE to scan banking infrastructures for compliance with PCI DSS cybersecurity requirement

BI.ZONE has become the official distributor of PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (PCI ASV) service from PCI Security Standards Council, PCI Data Security Standards Council
July 17, 2019

This will enable BI.ZONE to perform IT infrastructure vulnerability scanning services of financial organizations in accordance with the requirements of the international PCI DSS standard.

The data security standard for the payment card industry has been adopted in the financial sector to protect against fraudulent schemes. It was developed in 2004 by five key players in the payment processing market — Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. The standard is focused on organizations involved in the processing of payment cards, including trading and service enterprises (TSP), processing centers, acquirers, issuers, service providers and other companies that store, process or transmit data on cardholders.

The PCI Approved Scanning Vendor status makes BI.ZONE an official certified provider and gives it the ability to assess the security of the external network perimeter, identify vulnerabilities and incorrect configurations of financial organizations.

According to the cybersecurity requirements of PCI DSS for banks, scanning of IT infrastructure for vulnerabilities should be done at least once a quarter. At the same time, the standard specifies that such verification can be performed only by organizations certified by the PCI Security Standards Council. Our team has successfully completed testing under the PCI Scanning Vendor Program for compliance with ASV status, which now allows us to strengthen our expertise and expand the list of BI.ZONE services for security analysis
