PCI Compliance.

One Platform. One Agent. Complete Compliance for PCI DSS 4.0.

The most complete, accurate, and efficient solution to achieve PCI compliance

In today’s world, data is power. As an information security leader, I can’t drive accountability without data, and specifically data with a high level of integrity. The Enterprise TruRisk Platform along with its sensors, in particular cloud agents and cloud connectors, give me the single view to manage end-to-end PCI compliance and data security in my organization.

PCI compliance solution highlights

Full coverage of PCI requirements

Qualys covers more than 97% of PCI requirements across asset management, external & internal vulnerability management, payment web app security, secure configuration management, and PCI ASV questionnaires. With Qualys unified dashboard, organizations can visualize in their environment the top 20 control gaps as reported by the Verizon Payment Security Report (PSR), so that they can address them for better security and greater PCI compliance.

A single unified compliance solution

Using separate tools for individual PCI requirements adds operational overhead in the form of data fragmentation and infrastructure complexity. As a single solution, Qualys collects telemetry required for all PCI requirements into a highly scalable cloud platform, helping security practitioners identify and remediate issues efficiently, manage their PCI posture through dashboards, and generate audit-friendly reports. With its single cloud agent and PCI-approved scanning, Qualys eliminates the need to deploy multiple sensors and correlate disparate data.

Time-saving compliance automation and templates

Building a successful PCI compliance program typically requires significant manual work. Qualys’ automated discovery and classification of in-scope assets along with PCI-specific out-of-the-box compliance policies, file integrity monitoring profiles, self-assessment templates and vulnerability scan profiles enable customers to start assessing their card holder data environment within 15 minutes of provisioning. PCI-centric reporting templates make it easy to produce reports just the way your auditors need.

Achieve PCI DSS 4.0 compliance with a single platform and agent

Included is a PCI Compliance Unified View dashboard highlights compliance gaps and provides pre-built templates, profiles, and policies that can help you achieve full compliance. Automated workflows allow you to always know about every active asset across your global hybrid-IT environment. You can gain visibility across the top 20 control gaps with a single pane of glass, and leverage PCI-centric reporting templates, automated documentation, and robust reporting.

Vulnerability Management Detection and Response (VMDR) | Qualys

Perform continuous vulnerability management

Qualys Vulnerability Management, Detection, and Response (VMDR) is not included with TotalCompliance and is recommended as a pre-requisite foundational solution to manage CDE cyber risks (Req. 2, 5, 6, 11). It addresses the third goal for a CDE vulnerability management program, and Requirement 11’s need for regularly testing security of CDE systems and networks. VMDR excels at detecting internal and external risks, and efficiently responding to vulnerabilities. It even performs authenticated scans, such as for certificate inventory, which other scanners are unable to do.

  • Performs continuous vulnerability management using cloud agents or network scanners

  • Prioritizes vulnerabilities based on real-time threat indicators and your attack surface

  • Gives your security teams and auditors assurance that your network is completely secured.
