WHAT IS PCI APPLICATION?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of widely followed security requirements agreed upon by members of the PCI Security Standards Council. PCI compliance includes things such as: protecting all systems against malware; developing and maintaining secure systems and applications; tracking and monitoring access to network resources and cardholder data; running regular vulnerability scans; and implementing an incident response plan. The PCI standard has one overarching goal – to protect consumer payment and account information from theft and misuse.
PCI applications are designed to help companies meet these stringent PCI compliance standards, avoiding hacks, penalties, and more. With continuous security and compliance monitoring across all of your environments, PCI software can align your controls with industry best practices and ensure that your systems and processes remain compliant over time.
