Recent data breaches have resulted in hundreds of millions of data records being compromised and have reinforced the need for better testing of applications and services surrounding PCI data. According to Laney Dale, Managing Partner of NuOpus LLC, “Our clients are asking for solutions that better protect their data and applications and at the same time reduce costs. This has created a terrific demand for remote penetration testing services and compliance automation tools. Our tools and experienced staff can deliver these solutions to our clients”.
North Star from NuOpus provides constant testing and monitoring of compliance internally in addition to available remote testing services provided by NuOpus. We can help companies ensure that all applications are protected against attacks and that they comply with the requirements of the PCI-DSS.
Our remote testing services include:
1. Penetration Testing- The PCI-DSS requires that internal and external (public facing) applications that process "sensitive" data should be penetration tested at least annually and whenever they undergo significant revision.
2. Application Security Testing – We test applications to ensure they are not subject to various attacks.
3. Regular Vulnerability Scans – PCI-DSS section 11.2 requires that companies perform internal and external network vulnerability scans at least quarterly and after any significant change in the network (such as new system component installations, changes in network topology, firewall rule modifications, product upgrades).
Any organization that processes credit card data must comply with the PCI requirements and the risks associated with failing to comply can end a company’s ability to accept credit card payments.
