ManageEngine Security Manager Plus Provides Support for Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance Audits
Enables Merchant Establishments & Service Providers to Protect Cardholder Data and Adhere to PCI Compliance Guidelines
PLEASANTON, California, November 20, 2007
AdventNet Inc., the leading provider of affordable Enterprise IT management & IT security software, today announced an upgrade to ManageEngine Security Manager Plus 5, a network security scanner that proactively reports on network vulnerabilities and helps to remediate them and ensure compliance. This update offers support for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. A PCI Audit report provided by Security Manager Plus presents the compliance status of a network asset by verifying if frequent vulnerability scans are performed, encrypted data transfer is enabled, default passwords are tracked, etc. This helps payment service providers and merchants to safeguard their network resources and cardholder data.
With credit card fraud on the rise, credit card companies are very stringent with organizations that handle cardholder data, to adhere to compliance requirements governed by the PCI DSS. Non-compliance to the standard would automatically lead to heavy fines being levied on these organizations and eventual loss of business if there is a security breach. Therefore it becomes imperative to use a combination of security procedures and software products to meet these compliance requirements.
"After an extensive search of network security scanning products to complement our PCI security audit process we chose ManageEngine Security Manager Plus," said Hans Nottehed -- CTO, Info24 AB, a leading, neutral, international Telematics Information Broker for exchange, trading, processing and presentation of M2M and location-based information within and between organizations. "AdventNet showed a firm commitment towards providing and updating features for handling the PCI security scanning requirements as well as providing us with a great customer support," he added.
"ManageEngine Security Manager Plus automates the process of PCI DSS Compliance by scanning your network for vulnerabilities, determining if your network security is compromised and reporting whether the systems are compliant or not-compliant to the PCI DSS," said G. Rajesh, Director of Product Management at AdventNet Inc. "It generates a PCI Compliance report that presents the violations in your network from the PCI DSS requirements and can help you weigh the effectiveness of your organization's compliance efforts. Security Manager Plus is an efficient business enabler for companies dealing with cardholder data & helps secure sensitive information," he added.
With Security Manager Plus and other products like EventLog Analyzer (www.eventloganalyzer.com) a system log (syslog & event log) management solution that also helps adhere to demands of regulatory compliance requirements likes HIPAA, SOX, PCI, and GLBA -- and DeviceExpert (www.deviceexpert.com) a multi-vendor network configuration, change and compliance management solution for switches, routers and firewalls -- AdventNet offers customers a comprehensive solution to meet complete enterprise compliance requirements.
