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.
