Qualys PCI Compliance

Qualys PCI Compliance (PCI) provides businesses, online merchants and Member Service Providers the easiest, most cost-effective and highly-automated way to achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Known as PCI DSS, the standard provides organizations the guidance they need to ensure that credit cardholder information is kept secure from possible security breaches.


Qualys PCI draws upon the same highly accurate scanning infrastructure and technology as Qualys' flagship solution, Qualys - used by thousands of organizations around the world to protect their networks from the security vulnerabilities that make attacks against networks possible.


Qualys is an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV)

Delivered via our cloud platform, Qualys PCI is the most accurate, easiest to use solution for PCI compliance testing, reporting and submission. Qualys PCI enables merchants and Member Service Providers to promptly complete the PCI self-assessment questionnaire, and conduct network and web application security scans to efficiently identify and eliminate security vulnerabilities. The Qualys PCI "auto submission" feature completes the compliance process, allowing users to submit compliance status to one or multiple acquiring banks.

Qualys PCI works smoothly. We didn't realise that it was possible for us to scan and assess ourselves for compliance, but that's exactly what we do with Qualys PCI.

Quickly Eliminate Security Threats with
Detailed Remediation Instructions

PCI DSS also requires businesses to perform a network security scan every 90 days on all Internet facing networks and systems. To achieve compliance, businesses must identify and remediate all critical vulnerabilities detected during the scan. Qualys PCI automates and greatly simplifies this daunting process by providing easy-to-use reporting and identification of vulnerabilities that will cause you to fail PCI DSS. Like Qualys' other solutions, Qualys PCI uses the Qualys Cloud Platform for accurately scanning vulnerabilities. For each vulnerability discovered, Qualys PCI provides detailed instructions with links to verified patches, so that you can quickly eliminate each vulnerability.
