Managed PCI Validation

Many SMB owners don’t have the time and manpower to be solely responsible for remaining or becoming PCI compliant. SecurityMetrics offers additional managed PCI validation for an advisor driven compliance path. Merchants won’t need to stay up to date on PCI requirements or keep track of expiration. A proactive SecurityMetrics advisor will stay on top of keeping you PCI compliant. Managed PCI validation includes: 

  • Yearly outreach when it is time for initial enrollment and compliance validation renewal
  • Guided walkthrough of compliance questions and concerns
  • Assistance with questionnaires or other merchant requirements
  • Antivirus Essentials (antivirus and anti-malware software that protects against malware)

Key Product Features

Simplified Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ)

PCI compliance requires merchants to complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). SAQs can be tricky, and many small business owners and merchants don’t know which parts of the questionnaire apply to their business. SecurityMetrics guides you through the questionnaire, ensuring you complete all the applicable parts correctly.

Thorough PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) Scan

If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data online, you are required to have an external vulnerability scan performed by an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV). SecurityMetrics' ASV scan tool helps you understand and organize your results, send scan reports, and filter scan results.

Thorough Compliance Tracking And Account Management

See the status of your SAQ, vulnerability scan, and overall compliance in your online compliance console. You can also schedule scans and edit account information using the console.
