PCI ASV Compliance App Highlights

User-friendly, guided approach

PCI ASV streamlines and walks you through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliance process. With tips, a friendly, intuitive interface, online help and 24/7 Qualys email and phone support, PCI ASV lets you protect cardholder information from breaches. No need to hire costly experts to achieve compliance.

Streamlined scanning and remediation

PCI ASV scans all Internet-facing networks and systems with Six Sigma (99.9996%) accuracy, generates easy to use reports and provides detailed patching instructions for each vulnerability discovered. That way, you’ll make sure you’re meeting the PCI DSS requirements for protecting the collection, storage, processing and transmission of cardholder data.

Support for web app requirement

PCI ASV also covers the standard’s requirement for maintaining secure web applications. Its Web Application Scanning module automates the evaluation of web apps during and after development, ensuring they’re built and maintained securely. The module conducts authenticated and unauthenticated scans within any web app type — custom-built in house, or commercial.

Automated report submission

An auto-submission feature completes the compliance process once you’re finished with remediation. Enter your bank and merchant IDs in your account settings to activate this feature. PCI ASV will send the compliance status report directly to the acquiring banks. You can also download PCI ASV compliance reports in PDF.

Quickly eliminate security threats with detailed remediation instructions

PCI DSS requires businesses to perform a network security scan every 90 days on all Internet-facing networks and systems in accordance with a defined set of procedures. To achieve compliance, businesses must identify and remediate all critical vulnerabilities detected during the scan. Qualys PCI ASV app:

  • Automates and greatly simplifies scanning and remediation

  • Provides easy-to-use reporting of vulnerabilities that will cause you to fail PCI DSS

  • Uses the Enterprise TruRisk Platform to accurately scan vulnerabilities

  • Provides detailed instructions for each detected vulnerability, with links to verified patches for rapid remediation

Generate PCI network reports

Qualys PCI ASV generates two PCI network reports that are similar but intended for different purposes: One designed to offer proof of compliance, and the other to serve as a remediation guide.

  • Generates PCI Executive Report for submitting to the acquiring bank to document PCI compliance. This report provides summary level information only

  • Generates PCI Technical Report for identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing remediation. This report includes technical details to assist with remediation

  • Includes in the reports an overall PCI compliance status of “passed” or “failed”

    • An overall PCI compliance status of “passed” indicates that all hosts in the report passed the PCI DSS compliance standards set by the PCI Council. A host compliance status is provided for each host. A PCI compliance status of “passed” for a single host/IP indicates that no vulnerabilities or potential vulnerabilities were detected on the host.
    • If you fail the assessment, you can view a list of detected vulnerabilities and potential vulnerabilities, including those that must be fixed to obtain compliance as well as vulnerabilities that we recommend that you fix. View detailed remediation information.
