SAINT Scanner has Successfully Completed the PCI Scanning Vendor compliance Testing
SAINT scanner meets new PCI Requirements for Approved Scanning Vendors
September 20, 2010 (Bethesda, MD) – SAINT Corporation, a global leader in vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, announced that its SAINT vulnerability scanner has successfully completed the rigorous PCI Security Standards Council Approved Scanning Vendors (ASV) testing process for the "PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) Program Guide, v1.0" dated March 2010, of the PCI DSS standard v1.2. As an ASV, SAINT Corporation is able to help merchants manage data security risks, evaluate the security of their systems that store payment account data, and assist them in achieving compliance with the PCI DSS.
SAINT Corporation has achieved approved status by subjecting their SAINT network vulnerability scanner to rigorous testing on the Council’s infrastructure, which simulates the network of a typical security scan customer. In an era of increasingly sophisticated attacks on systems, the PCI DSS qualification reassures merchants that they are being assessed accurately and fairly against the most current payment industry requirements. Additionally, the vendors approved by the PCI Security Standards Council are the only entities qualified to perform scanning assessments.
“The PCI Security Standards Council is committed to helping everyone involved in the payment chain protect consumer payment data,” said Bob Russo, General Manager, PCI Security Standards Council. “By participating in the ASV certification process, SAINT demonstrates they are playing an active part in this important end goal.”
“Our top priority is to meet the needs of our customers by addressing the industry requirements for PCI auditing and compliance. We are happy to be able to provide the PCI solution they need,” said Donna Ruginski, CEO of SAINT Corporation.
