Turn Policies into Protection
Compliance guidelines such as PCI DSS, ISO, SOX, and NIST usually define desired outcomes, but don’t recommend any specific technical checks for actually achieving them. How can you "check the box" without knowing which specific tests are required for verifying the security configurations on any target asset?
For example, you may have to implement and validate technical policies and processes that ensure secure data transmission, limit access to information, or protect the integrity of customer and employee information. However, how you actually achieve these requirements is left up to you to work out.
For instance, consider this specific PCI DSS 3.0 requirement: PCI DSS 2.2.2—Enable only necessary services, protocols, daemons, etc., as required for the function of the system.
In this case, the requirement is clear, but how would you confirm that only secure services, protocols, and daemons are enabled and that all unnecessary and insecure services are disabled across your entire infrastructure according to PCI DSS requirements?
Take the Pain Out of Compliance
Many companies view compliance as a time-consuming and tiresome chore with numerous boxes to check. We can help you get on with your business. Positive Technologies takes an effective and efficient approach that actively strengthens your security while equipping you with the tools necessary to prove you meet the required standards.
We translate high-level security guidelines into actionable and verifiable operational security controls that can be automated to make compliance part of your everyday security processes. Translate high-level security guidelines.
We check each relevant technical parameter across all your systems against your designated compliance standards, identifying which areas are compliant and which require improvement. The more controls that can be automatically analyzed, the quicker risks can be eliminated, which minimizes the chance of nasty or expensive surprises during audits.
Since compliance verification is not a one-time event, but rather an ongoing process, we work to guarantee:
- Minimum security configurations within your existing infrastructure are implemented, and remain unchanged
- Rapid identification of new systems with default/insecure configurations
- Automatic updates to operating systems and applications have not altered the security posture
As a global authority on network security, Positive Technologies knows what it takes to comply with data security guidelines, including SOX, ISO, PCI DSS, 3GPP, NIST, NERC, and HIPAA.
In addition to global or industry-wide regulations, often companies must also comply with regional or internal corporate standards. Positive Technologies provides unique benchmarks and customized services to help you meet these specific individual requirements.
Get technical checks needed to prove compliance. Strengthen your security. Make compliance part of your everyday practice. See when changes compromise your defenses. And significantly accelerate your incident response and remediation times—all while drastically reducing your costs associated with compliance.
Now that’s a smarter approach to compliance management.
