Automate PCI DSS Compliance

Continuous visibility into your entire infrastructure (on-premise, cloud, and containers) assessing security posture to industry standards and customized benchmarks, further providing prescriptive remediation guidance to meet PCI compliance requirements.

the struggle

Regardless of your organization's infrastructure if you store, process, or transmit credit card data, you are required to meet current Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance regulations. The challenge becomes even more taxing when trying to meet AWS PCI or Azure PCI compliance.  When you think that you have met all of your requirements, you may still end up failing your audit or be open to a serious breach. Here are the top reasons why companies fall short:

  • You have an segmented view of all your credit and debit card customers’ personally identifiable information because it's dispersed in the cloud and on-premise
  • You don’t realize that PCI compliance standards are necessary for data in the cloud
  • PCI DSS and other requirements evolve and you might not be meeting these new requirements
  • Systems get modified and aren’t updated to meet today's compliance standards
  • Improper security settings, incorrect configurations, low levels of encryption, and/or poor policies and procedures

PCI Hybrid Cloud Compliance Model

We group Cavirin’s adaptive security analytics capabilities into a grid, with predictive and preventative analytics a potential game-changer for the CISO.

Cavirin’s continuous security solution first ensures that your organization’s servers, either on-premise or in the cloud, are conforming to the different CIS, NIST, ISO/IEC, and SOC2 frameworks as well as PCI DSS 3.2 to meet IT compliance requirements.  

The platform then recommends necessary remediation if the system is out of compliance.   Once you establish this security baseline, the system continuously checks for drift, alerting you and setting the stage for corrective action. 

Cavirin totally automates this process, and is complementary to network segmentation approaches that seek to limit the network attack service - it does the same for the servers.  And, if deploying in the cloud, it also supports cloud hardening and security benchmarks.  In fact, Cavirin was the first company to implement the AWS PCI DSS 3.2 Quick Start, facilitating AWS PCI compliance.


PCI DSS Challenges and Solutions for Small Financial Institutions

There are twelve basic PCI DSS requirements that every organization handling credit card data must meet. Meeting all of these requirements can be a challenge, especially in a hybrid cloud environment, but there are ways to make it a lot easier.  This whitepaper explores the PCI DSS requirements and highlights the top reasons why small financial institutions, who think they are complying, may still fail an audit.  It also goes through the PCI DSS 3.2 compliance implementation timeline and possible solutions for the small to mid-market financial institution.

outstanding features

A single unified view of assets, vulnerabilities and compliance status across the entire infrastructure.

Faster discovery and analysis time to address security threats/breaches.

Cloud-agnostic architecture enables AWS security, GCP security, Azure security, Docker security, as well as on-premise supporting VMware and KVM security.
Powerful 'group' function allows selection and analysis of workloads such as PCI DSS spanning on-premise and multiple cloud operators, creating a true end-to-end view of security posture.
On-premise or in the cloud, the rich set of preloaded CIS, NIST, PCI DSS (including PCI DSS 3.2 for AWS Quick Start), and cloud hardening benchmarks, plus the flexibility to create customizable benchmarks, help financial firms deliver a more secure experience.
API-first architecture that interworks with other security and automation solutions supporting areas as diverse as vulnerability management, threat intelligence, and remediation workflow automation.

An agentless and true next-generation architecture, delivering fastest times to baseline and analysis times that are independent of the number of policies tested.


Cavirin is taking a leadership role within AWS by supporting the PCI DSS 3.2 for AWS Quick Start.

Nemi George, Pacific Dental, on Cavirin

“Unlike other vendors, with the Cavirin platform you get the blueprints from various standards, so I can look at a portion of my network and see whether I’m HIPAA compliant or not, rather than just general security best practice compliance that a lot of the other tools give me."
