SonicWALL’s PCI offering
SonicWALL launched a solution set designed to help merchants meet the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard version 1.1 (PCI DSS) to protect their customer’s credit card data. SonicWALL’s PCI offering is an integrated suite of technology, scoping tools and educational materials aimed at enabling organizations accepting payment cards to create secure networks and inspire confidence among their customer base in the safety of their transactions.
As part of its PCI initiative, SonicWALL commissioned ControlCase, a Qualified Security Auditor for PCI, to undertake a comprehensive audit. This audit confirmed the PCI version 1.1 compliance capabilities of SonicWALL’s Global Management System (GMS), and standard and enhanced SonicOS, as available on TZ and PRO series security appliances. SonicWALL also worked with ControlCase to create a step-by-step guide for implementing best practices in the deployment of a GMS-managed SonicWALL network. The guide helps users put in place the necessary policies, control mechanisms and processes for introducing and enforcing security related to payment card transactions, without overlooking any of the details which the standard requires them to address.
“By following SonicWALL’s PCI implementation guidelines, organizations can quickly meet and maintain a majority of the network and policy requirements defined by the PCI Data Security Standard,” said Mark Mercer, chief executive officer at ControlCase. “SonicWALL is clearly providing a valuable service to their customers, and the market, by providing such guidance to a potentially confusing, complex issue.”
