Application security solutions provider Indusface has teamed up with Australian security firm Dragonfly Technologies to promote collaboration among PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) community in Asia-Pacific through DrivePCI initiative.
The DrivePCI initiative facilitates organisations in identifying PCI DSS gaps, remediation planning as well as remediation services.
The PCI DSS is a set of requirements that aims to improve and protect payment card data.
For adhering to these standards, merchants and service providers need to perform external vulnerability scans on their systems every quarter with the help of an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV).
The DrivePCI alliance will help businesses subscribe to continuous PCI ASV scanning and penetration testing services backed by leading and Gartner recognised cyber security firms, Indusface said.
The partnership will also deliver PCI DSS services in the areas of PCI DSS, IndusGuard PCI ASV, penetration testing along with application security services.
Indusface CEO Ashish Tandon said: "Being an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) for PCI Security Standards Council, Indusface will help organizations perform regular vulnerability checks to prevent exploits and misuse.
"In this alliance with Dragonfly, we also look to help companies comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 6.6 requirement with our Total Application Security solution that detects, protects and monitors. PCI DSS 6.6 mandates addressing vulnerabilities on public-facing web applications, which is an area of our expertise."
