If you are in the retail or hospitality industries, it's important to know exactly how your network security solution maps to PCI DSS standards. This white paper presents a straight-forward review of PCI requirements and how the WatchGuard UTM platform delivers the capabilities you need to ensure mandates are met.

There are three ongoing steps for adhering to the PCI DSS:
Assess — identifying all locations of cardholder data, taking an inventory of your IT assets and business processes for payment card processing and analyzing them for vulnerabilities that could expose cardholder data.
Repair — fixing identified vulnerabilities, securely removing any unnecessary cardholder data storage, and implementing secure business processes.
Report — documenting assessment and remediation details, and submitting compliance reports to the acquiring bank and card brands you do business with (or other requesting entity if you’re a service provider).
PCI Security Standards are technical and operational requirements set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to protect cardholder data. The standards apply to all entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data – with requirements for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions. The Council is responsible for managing the security standards, while compliance with the PCI set of standards is enforced by the founding members of the Council: American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard and Visa Inc.
It's not only critical that organizations implement the PCI DSS prescribed security measures, they must also be able to clearly demonstrate that they are compliant. WatchGuard provides multilayered security solutions and reporting tools, including PCI DSS compliance reports, that help support an organization in achieving PCI DSS compliance and keeping networks and cardholder data secure.
