Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliance

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is an industry-established standard, which requires organizations that handle transactions from major credit card companies to protect payment card data. 

How EiQ Helps

EiQ’s SOCVue Security Monitoring service helps organizations address PCI DSS 3.2 Requirement 10 by providing 24/7/365 security monitoring and auditing for systems that are associated with payment card data.

EiQ’s SOCVue Vulnerability Management service provides vulnerability detection and remediation guidance designed to help address PCI DSS 3.2 Requirements 2, 6, and 11. Through a partnership with Qualys, EiQ is able to provide the necessary ASV-certified vulnerability scans required for PCI compliance.

With the Security Monitoring on-premise deployment option, EiQ’s SOC team can also proactively assess several additional network security controls, which are based on the SANS/CIS Critical Security Controls*, in order to reduce your compliance risk. The security controls are directly mapped to relevant sections of PCI DSS 3.2.

Our SOC team will work with your organization to enable the reporting you need to help meet your compliance objectives with ease.

How SOCVue Security Monitoring Addresses

How SOCVue Vulnerability Management Addresses

Critical Security Control #1: Inventory of Authorized and Unauthorized Devices


SOCVue security analysts can monitor DHCP event logs to track the identity of devices connecting to the network and help detect unauthorized devices.

SOCVue security analysts will conduct Qualys discovery scans in order to build an inventory of authorized and unauthorized devices.

Critical Security Control #4: Continuous Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation




SOCVue security analysts can help you correlate data from a wide variety of commercial vulnerability scanners with real-time security event data for enhanced alerting and reporting.

SOCVue Vulnerability Management includes Qualys vulnerability scanning along with our SOCVue security analysts to manage the tool and guide you with recommended action. New vulnerabilities can be quickly detected and appropriate staff notified.

Critical Security Control #6: Maintenance, Monitoring, and Analysis of Audit Logs








SOCVue Security Monitoring provides the people, process, and technology needed to collect, monitor, and analyze audit logs. Monitoring audit logs can provide valuable security insight and help detect advanced threats.

Critical Security Control #9: Limitation and Control of Network Ports


SOCVue security analysts will help you establish a whitelist/blacklist of ports and protocols and assess whether any unauthorized ports, protocols, and services are running on a network.

SOCVue Vulnerability Management provides vulnerability scanning technology from Qualys to help detect vulnerable port and protocol usage on your IT assets.
