PCI 31

Improve PCI 3 compliance with help from Veracode.

For software organizations, complying with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 3.0 (PCI 3) can be a significant burden.

PCI 3 mandates that organizations meet strict guidelines for security when developing applications, and that third-party custom code can be scanned for vulnerabilities. Compliance with PCI 3.0 requires organizations to have a robust testing program in place, with tools for evaluating third-party software.

But managing PCI security can be costly and time-consuming, adding unacceptable delays to timelines for developing new applications. And organizations that have thousands of web applications – some which they may not even know about – faced serious hurdles to ensuring that every piece of software has been adequately scanned for vulnerabilities.

As a leading provider of application security testing solutions, Veracode can help with PCI 3 compliance by providing dev ops tools that integrate testing throughout the SDLC and provide an easy way to evaluate third-party code.

PCI 3 security solutions from Veracode.

Veracode application security solutions help organizations protect business-critical software. Built on a unified platform, Veracode’s comprehensive testing tools include static analysis,unit testing, software composition analysis, black box testing techniques, vendor application security testing and other technologies for scanning code as it is built, purchased and assembled to rid it of flaws and vulnerabilities.

With Veracode’s automated testing solutions, software development teams can ensure PCI 3 compliance by testing for flaws at multiple points in the software development lifecycle. From scanning code as it is being written to analyzing binaries of applications already in production, Veracode delivers the solutions that make application security easier, faster and less costly

How Veracode makes it easier to comply with PCI 3 requirements.

To ensure compliance with PCI 3 guidelines, IT administrators can assign predefined policy for Veracode solutions to each application and authorize automated scans. Once this is done, the Veracode platform will:

  • Perform automatic tests of designated applications in development and in production.
  • Analyze the results, provide detailed findings and categorize issues based on severity.
  • Deliver remediation recommendations that enable developers to fix vulnerabilities more quickly.
  • Retest software and provide data on the effectiveness of remediation as well as progress against target timelines.
  • Provide proof of compliance with PCI 3, including documentation that applications have been tested and that remediation has been accomplished.
