Achieving PCI Compliance with eDMZ Security
Though PCI compliance is not a government driven requirement such as Sarbanes Oxley and HIPAA, noncompliance under PCI can have a devastating impact on any enterprise that relies on credit card transactions. Your contract with credit card companies requires that as an organization you comply with PCI. Non-compliance with PCI can result in specific contractual penalties and/or revocation of your rights as an enterprise to process credit card transactions.
Like all compliance and regulatory requirements, there is no single product or policy/procedure that will assure your compliance. THERE IS NO SILVER BULLET for PCI COMPLIANCE. PCI compliance requires that your enterprise deploy many security technologies, and have specific policies and procedures in place. This white paper focuses on the unique issues and solutions associated with both privileged password management and remote vendor access in meeting PCI compliance requirements. Many of the requirements highlighted cannot be resolved or adequately addressed by existing enterprise security technologies such as firewalls, VPN and IDS solutions. Existing legacy policies and procedures are also unable to meet many of the requirements standards presented under PCI. Management, control and audit of both shared/privileged account passwords and critical remote third party and administrative level connections is mandatory in meeting PCI requirements and other growing regulatory, compliance and best practice security needs.
NetOptics For Banking:
In financial institutions, networks must be especially reliable because they not only facilitate business processes, but also determine financial outcomes. Strict government regulations and corporate governance rules make monitoring these networks even more critical.
Net Optics monitoring access solutions enable banks and financial institutions to deploy the security, performance monitoring, and compliance enforcement solutions they need to maintain network performance and satisfy regulatory requirements. Taps from Net Optics are guaranteed to pass 100 percent of network traffic, even in the highest load conditions, so no critical messages or micro-burst trade transactions are ever missed. TapFlow filtering technology enables financial institutions to zero in on network traffic using particular protocols that signal different types of financial transactions and IP addresses that relate to specific branch offices. Moreover, by regenerating traffic to multiple monitoring tools, compliance officers and security personnel can simultaneously access any traffic without disrupting network performance.
