PCI DSS overview

HCL BigFix Compliance PCI Add-on provides checklists for PCI compliance. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a baseline of technical and organizational requirements that are related to the Payment Card Industry.

The PCI DSS states that you must establish a secure payments environment throughout your organization to achieve compliance. BigFix Compliance enforces security configurations for endpoints and servers in your organization. It can help your organization protect endpoints and assure assessors or regulators that you are meeting security compliance for PCI DSS.

By complying with the PCI DSS standards you ensure that cardholder data and sensitive authentication data are secure and well-protected from malicious users and attacks.

The PCI DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing and requires continuous compliance with the security standards and best practices set by the PCI Security Standards Council. For more information about PCI DSS, see the PCI Security Standards Council website.

When endpoints are protected, all entities that are involved in payment card processing are secure.
