Determine in-scope networks

To maintain business network security and to comply with PCI requirements, you should conduct external vulnerability scanning at least quarterly. The first step is determining where your business network hosts sensitive data. We walk you through this process and make sure you understand things like what it really means to store, handle, and process card data.

Schedule network scans

We make it easy to schedule and conduct scans to test your network. Using your SecurityMetrics online account you can schedule scan frequency on appropriate IP addresses and domain names. You may also initiate a network scan to run as often as desired for retesting purposes. Scans will automatically run quarterly if frequency is not adjusted.

Monitor scan status

Once a network scan completes, it is given a passing or failing status. A report is generated explaining the vulnerabilities found, level of risk, and remediation methods to secure the network. We want to make sure you pass your scans and won’t nickel and dime you until a passing status is achieved.

Here's what our customers are saying

Premiere Sports Travel engaged with a new partner in early 2009. PCI compliance was a major component of ensuring this partnership was possible. We started our account with SecurityMetrics in September 2009, and quickly realized we had a lot of work ahead of us. The relevance of ensuring proper ecommerce website security and protecting card holder data continues to be paramount for our organization, and we could not manage this process better without the reporting tools and excellent technical expertise provided by SecurityMetrics.

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.

PCI seems daunting - regardless of who you are - SecurityMetrics deployed professional, reliable and trustworthy people who enabled us to not only get through the process with ease, but also to educate us how to manage, control, and implement our strategy in the future.
