Continuous compliance at scale

PCI DSS Compliance

Assure CDEs are effectively segmented with automated pass/fail reporting of PCI DSS compliance

Configuration Security: Evidence-based PCI DSS Compliance

Complex networks, large customer bases, and long supply chains have made commercial CNI organizations – and particularly their cardholder data environments - highly susceptible to attacks in recent years.

To reflect the increase in risk, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 4.0 now recommends continuous monitoring of all network devices to ensure a regular cadence of assessment to detect and mitigate vulnerabilities (both software and misconfigurations), before they can be exploited.

The ability to accurately prioritize the remediation of non-compliances based on risk is fundamental to improving PCI DSS compliance posture – and why Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) and Internal Security Assessors (ISAs) globally champion Nipper solutions.

ICON - Segmentation - Enterprise

Assure effective network segmentation

Prevent unauthorized access to the CDE (Cardholder Data Environment) and other critical network segments by hardening from the inside-out, inhibiting lateral movement and making it as difficult as possible for intruders to gain entry and progress towards their goal.

ICON - Proactive Audits - Enterprise

Automate security as a continuous process

Abandon sampling by automating the process of regularly assessing network infrastructure and prioritizing remediation based on PCI DSS risk.

ICON - Software Vulnerability Management - Enterprise

Analyze exposure due to misconfiguration risks

Automate audits against STIGs, CCI, NIST 800-53 and/or the MITRE ATT&CK framework to understand the extent to which the network is exposed due to misconfigurations.

Research Report

Report reveals less than 40% of senior cybersecurity decision makers can effectively prioritize risks to PCI DSS 4.0 compliance.


Prevent Unauthorized Access to CDE

Validate ‘deny all’/’permit by exception’ access to the CDE and mitigate the risk of lateral movement from advanced persistent threat, by continuously verifying networks remain adequately segmented.
