Due to the importance of the information they protect, Payment Card Industry (PCI) systems, from large servers processing thousands of transactions to small POS terminals and kiosks in the mall, are constantly under attack by cyber criminals. Adhering to a series of process and security tool requirements known as the Data Security Standard (DSS) is critical to curbing these threats and maintaining the integrity of your computer systems.
CoreTrace provides advanced threat protection solutions that help IT and security professionals secure and manage POS terminals, physical and virtual Windows servers, desktops and laptops, as well as Linux enterprise servers. CoreTrace Bouncer and the CoreTrace Reputation Service provide retail companies with the ability to protect valuable information, secure critical systems and achieve compliance.
Securing PCI-Related Systems
CoreTrace helps ensure that critical transaction systems such as POS terminals and kiosks are fully protected and operating normally at all times. Given the importance of the business information and confidential cardholder data they handle, these systems are often prime targets for hackers.
CoreTrace’s advanced threat protection is based upon adaptive application whitelisting to prevent the execution of all unauthorized code, memory protection to stop attackers from exploiting whitelisted applications and risk-profiling of all applications via cloud-based reputation services. Unlike systems that are running traditional security approaches, CoreTrace-protected systems are more secure, higher performing and utilize significantly less bandwidth.
Meeting PCI DSS Requirements
Bouncer not only enables organizations to meet multiple DSS requirements around securing and controlling PCI-relevant systems and applications, it does so in a single solution that provides true advanced threat protection. Specifically, the DSS guidelines Bouncer helps address include:
- Requirement 05 – Use and maintain antivirus:
Since they are not on the whitelist, Bouncer stops all viruses and malware from executing, regardless of how the malicious code entered your PCI system. Bouncer takes it a step further by preventing any harmful effects of memory attacks like DLL injections.
- Requirement 06 – Develop and maintain secure systems
Bouncer-protected systems remain secure before, during and after security patches are implemented. By preventing vulnerability-leveraging malware from executing, Bouncer allows you to keep your PCI systems running until regularly scheduled maintenance windows, instead of requiring downtime for emergency vulnerability patches.
