pci-compliance-scanWeb sites have never been more under attack by hackers and E-commerce sites are a prime target.  Right now,  do you know if your web site is infected with malware?

PCI Vulnerability Scanning is designed for Website owners and E-commerce Merchants to secure transactions, in accordance with PCI Standards. PCI standards on their externally facing IP addresses require regular vulnerability assessments on their IP addresses that touch the credit card acceptance, transmission, and storage process.

Why Do You Need PCI Compliance Scanning?

If you accept credit/debit cards you must comply with PCI Data Security Standards.

  • For PCI Compliance: Any organization that accepts, processes, or stores credit/debit card information needs to comply with the standards set by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council.
  • To avoid penalties: Failure to comply with the PCI security standards may result in heavy fines, restrictions, or permanent expulsion from card acceptance programs.
  • To increase sales: Increase shopper confidence by displaying a Credit Card logo.
