Improve payment security in-line with PCI DSS
NNT launched version 5 of its Change Tracker and Log Tracker Enterprise software suite. The software is specifically designed to improve payment security and protect against network threats and data breaches in-line with the PCI DSS, which requires organizations that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to information security controls and processes that ensure data protection.
NNT Change Tracker manages the file integrity monitoring (FIM), system hardening and configuration change monitoring aspects of the PCI DSS, enabling organizations to audit IT systems for vulnerabilities and then set a baseline to monitor changes to configurations, file systems, registries and settings, with an easy to use and secure dashboard that ensures systems are, and remain, compliant.
The core strength of NNT Change Tracker version 5 is its analytical capabilities, which are designed to cater for both real-time and historic summary reporting including:
- Real-time alerting on any file integrity changes. FIM is driven by precisely targeted templates designed for mixed application environments, these templates hone in on only the file changes pertinent to PCI DSS, cutting out the “background noise’ that makes other FIM solutions difficult to use.
- File and configuration changes are delivered to the users Inbox with “at a glance’ summarized reports, to easily and effectively identify device compliance. Detailed drill-down and high-level reporting is also available for specific aspects of PCI DSS compliance such as File Integrity or Configuration Vulnerabilities.
NNT Log Tracker deals with event log management for Requirement 10 of the regulations, by providing real-time SIEM that will immediately flag any compliance breach. NNT’s multi-platform security correlation enables organizations to safely gather and review logs daily from all devices, including network devices, Unix and windows servers, as well as applications and databases.
A key feature of NNT Log Tracker version 5 is the pre-defined audit trails for PCI Requirement 10, which NNT provide for all common device-types. These pre-defined audit trails are used in conjunction with intelligent “self-learning’ technology to identify and automate alert thresholds, meaning that PCI Compliance can be achieved in just hours.
