Pre Onsite Gap Analysis

Our friendly and knowledgeable QSAs complete an initial gap analysis of your organization's compliance status. After the gap analysis is completed, feedback and remediation checklist items will be shared with you in our online project management tool. The tool helps you stay organized, communicate and track assignments, and guides your efforts to close your compliance gaps and prepare for your onsite compliance validation assessment.

Onsite assessment

PCI DSS Onsite Assessments determine the data security posture of your organization. Your QSA will make an in-person visit to your location to assess and collect evidence of compliance to the PCI DSS. Businesses must demonstrate compliance with all PCI DSS requirements annually. SecurityMetrics onsite assessments help you:

  • Secure your card data environment
  • Finish your assessment on time
  • Reach compliance goals to avoid fines
  • Build long-lasting security policies and practices
  • Manage and track compliance efforts throughout the year
  • Reduce overall compliance costs

Remediation Assistance

We understand that PCI validation absorbs time, money, and other resources that could be used to grow your business. Our QSAs work with you to fix areas of non-compliance and expedite the retesting process to ensure a timely assessment.

PCI Report on Compliance (ROC)

Once your PCI audit is complete and compliance requirements have been met, SecurityMetrics QSAs write and submit the ROC to the PCI Council. Our QSAs act as your advocate and work directly with the Council to clarify any issues or provide additional information to complete your PCI compliance certification.

Top Reasons to use SecurityMetrics for PCI Compliance

  • Keep your PCI project organized and on schedule

    When you’re on a tight deadline, it’s easy to want to rush through things. This causes for a disorganized process. With our project management tool, Suralink, you can upload documents, make comments, and receive feedback from QSAs in one place. So instead of stressing out about what to do next, you can rest assured that your project will stay organized and your compliance will be validated on time.
  • Satisfaction that will make you return year after year

    Because our assessors are accurate, experienced, easy to work with, and responsive to your needs, the majority of our clients renew with us for compliance certification.
  • Conduct an Accurate Risk Assessment

    Conducting a risk assessment is required as part of your PCI DSS Audit. To ensure an accurate assessment of your security, our assessments are based on industry standards such as the standard laid out by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
  • A partner in compliance

    Feel confident in your compliance assessment knowing that our security-minded QSAs are up to date on the latest trends and have completed thousands of PCI audits over the years. Our assessors work as members of your team to create the shortest path possible to an accurate and complete PCI audit.
  • Complete PCI audit solution

    A thorough and accurate PCI audit consists of many individual components and activities. When these individual pieces aren't designed to work together, deadlines are missed, and vulnerabilities are overlooked. Our consulting services, gap analysis, penetration tests, external vulnerability scans and other tools are designed to work together to provide a fluid and accurate solution to PCI audit requirements, and to close the gaps in both your security and compliance efforts.
  • Improve Security And Increase Value

    By analyzing your unique workflows and data paths, SecurityMetrics assessors help to establish more efficient arrangements for your data environment to improve payment card security and remove costly, unnecessary steps from the process.

Here's what our customers are saying

We’ve been using SecurityMetrics for our onsite PCI audits for more than 10 years now. We have continued to come back and return to SecurityMetrics due to the value that has been supplied by them. SecurityMetrics has been around long enough now and they’ve been one of the top providers when it comes to PCI compliance, that I know they’re in it for the long haul.

Dawn Martinez, SVP, NewTek Merchant Solutions

We were impressed with every aspect of the experience. While audits are never fun, the experience was positive and educational for our entire organization. The QSA was clearly an expert in this field and conducted the entire engagement professionally. We’re quite happy to be publicly associated with a leader in the security industry.

Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, President and CEO, Groupize

SecurityMetrics is an integral part of the team in our PCI program. We depend on the assessors to make sure that we stay on the compliance track. They do it with developing relationships across campus, discussing upcoming projects or application changes, and being available to us for consulting. They are knowledgeable, helpful and help us keep the campus engaged by their friendly demeanors.

Robbyn Lennon, Sr. Program Coordinator, University of Arizona

Our experience with SecurityMetrics, from initial discussions, to planning, to implementation was very well organized, detailed, and ultimately achieved our PCI directive in the shortest timeframe possible. SecurityMetrics worked diligently and respectfully throughout the process – even working over what was expected to ensure SuitePay met its goals.

Matthew Hetland, SuitePay

You guys made our PCI audit as easy as pie for us and anytime we had any sort of issue or problem...My team and I had an amazing learning experience with this whole process and Dustin with the rest of the SecurityMetrics team made a potentially very stressful situation into a smoothly executed project. My most sincere thanks.


SecurityMetrics is the most retail friendly solution. At the small business level, frequently the person that has to interface with the tool is an owner or someone who has financial responsibility, but they may not necessary be technically savvy with using online tools. We believe SecurityMetrics meets that need better than anyone else we've seen.

Steve Methvin, Bozzutos

After dealing with a number of QSA auditors, we found SecurityMetrics offered the most helpful and practical PCI advisement. We are delighted to work with them as we continue to strengthen our PCI environment.
