PCI Compliance: You Can't Be the Big Cheese if Your Network is Full of Holes


A quick glance at the headlines these days reveals that the security infrastructures of retailers, merchants, and banks are as holey as Swiss cheese. With continuous PCI pressure on merchants of all sizes, companies are torn between the "bare minimum" approach to satisfy the auditors and an approach that provides full compliance with improved security.

Join us for this webcast and learn how customers have been able to shore up their networks and meet the specific monitoring requirements of the PCI standard as part of their overall security strategy:

  • Monitoring for unnecessary and insecure "holes" in your network like inappropriate services and protocols (PCI Requirement 2)
  • Monitoring all application layer traffic within the network to help meet PCI-driven policy (PCI Requirement 4)
  • Alerting and reporting on network resource access or access to card data (PCI Requirement 10)
  • Real-time network information and security alert monitoring (PCI Requirement 12)

Log onto this webcast and learn how an everyday Security Administrator can quickly become the "Big Cheese."
