How Can SafeNet/i Address PCI Compliance Issues?
SafeNet/i can help you meet many PCI requirements for your company or organization. Based on the Payment Card
Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard document, the following areas are directly addressed by SafeNet/i:
- Requirement 3: Protect stored cardholder data
SafeNet/i lets you build a network application firewall around your credit card data. Only authorized
users are allowed access. This is controlled in a multi-level approach which controls access method
authorization in combination with object level controls. Violations of access rules can be immediately reported
in real time when they occur.
- Requirement 7: Restrict access to cardholder data by business need to know
Using the same multi-level approach, access to cardholder data can be effectively restricted by SafeNet/i for
network users to specific authorized individuals while keeping all others away from the data.
- Requirement 10: Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data
SafeNet/i maintains a comprehensive log recording all network accesses to cardholder data, both authorized and
rejected unauthorized attempts. This log can be kept for historical analysis and reporting and provides proof
of access controls.
This is just a brief overview of how SafeNet/i can help address the requirements of PCI security requirements.
We recommend that customers study the Data Security Standard in detail to make sure that they are meeting all
requirements. SafeNet/i is an important tool that you can use to become fully compliant.
