Cybersecurity solution for PCI DSS compliance

How to protect your business while securing your customers’ payment data

Payment card data is very sensitive. Theft must to be avoided at all costs as it not only leads to enormous financial losses but to long-term damage to the corporate image. Data security dovetails information security and is therefore essential for payment card providers and merchants.

To secure credit card transactions, reduce fraud and identify security issues, payment card standard was created by an independent group of major international payment card providers like American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard and Visa.

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) created the first Data Security Standard (DSS) in 2004. Its compliance is mandatory to each enterprise that processes, stores and transmits cardholder and transactional information. Being compliant is crucial for enterprises processing payment card data and more generally for enterprises aiming to maintain a very high level of security of their web applications.

Your challenges

Software is most often vulnerable in one way or another and web applications are no exception. Web applications are often related to many parts of the corporate information system. On the contrary, several factors tend to make them more vulnerable. They are often developed with short timelines, by very heterogeneous teams not always aware of some basic security coding principles, and tend to be very complex. They integrate many components, often from third-parties, and interact with several internal servers and databases.

The number of attacks targeted towards web applications with components that have not been updated or misconfigured are increasing. Applications have become more interactive and an attacker can use many tricks to submit specifically crafted data in various places to access sensitive information.
