Gilt Groupe needed to move to a cloud environment to boost scalability and cope with peaks in demand.
This case study explores how Brocade technology simplified this process, enabling a multitiered, service-oriented architecture that would satisfy PCI DSS compliance.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored on premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where you may have less immediate control, you must still control your sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) audit can be passed by complying with the bare minimum requirements, but that falls short of the purpose of it: to secure and protect cardholder data.
Meeting compliance is about passing an audit at a specific point in time and also maintaining it after the audit. The real challenge is sustaining continuous compliance to avoid costly breaches at the hands of motivated and skilled adversaries.
Indeed, as detailed in Verizon's "2017 Payment Security Report," nearly half (45%) of the companies examined between 2015 and 2016 were not fully PCI DSS compliant.
An organization that excels at automating, standardizing and monitoring its systems and access controls can comply not only with PCI DSS, but with many other state and federal regulations that have similar mandates. Download this paper to learn more.

New report issued by Fortrex, Emagined Security and Solidcore reveals the cost of PCI compliance is justified. Fortrex, in conjunction with Solidcore and Emagined Security have compiled a PCI compliance report that reveals the cost of a breach can easily be 20 times the cost of PCI compliance, more than justifying the up-front investment.
If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

Information security has undergone a sea change in the past 10 years. Compliance mandates in the form of industry standards and Federal rules like NERC, FFIEC, HIPAA/HITECH and PCI-DSS are the new norm. To stay in compliance, IT teams need to be able to keep up with updatesand changes to existing mandates while also being prepared for new ones. To maximize efficiency, manage risk and reduce potential violations due to compliance failure, organizations need to implement security tools whose features support multiple specifications within and across different compliance frameworks.
This paper explores the subject of continuous compliance versus audit-driven compliance, as well as how an ongoing approach to compliance makes compliance a positive force for securing data and systems.
Recent surveys of IT managers revealed two commonly held beliefs: database regulations are the most challenging to comply with, and of all regulatory standards, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) the toughest.
NPMD solutions are typically not directly involved in the actual card cardholder transaction. However, given that many can potentially capture and transmit cardholder data they must be viewed as an integral part of a business’ PCI DSS compliance strategy, especially when investigating data breaches for the purposes of reporting or remediation.
Therefore, beyond satisfying your service delivery monitoring and troubleshooting requirements, be sure to verify your NPMD solution protects cardholder data and aids your efforts in PCI DSS compliance.

Fraud preventative solutions are designed to avert new accounts fraud before it occurs. The strategic advantage of fraud prevention therefore lies in the ability avoid losses to institutions and consumers.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) establishes standard requirements protecting cardholder information. It applies to all entities that store, process, or transmit cardholder data, such as retail merchants, payment processors, and banks.
This white paper examines the necessary requirements to adhere to PCI DSS, the implications of non-compliance as well as how effective event log management and network vulnerability management play a key role in achieving compliance.
Working together, the major payment card providers have developed a set of data security standards and created a council for enforcing them. Although the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has become a global requirement, many organizations are lagging in compliance.
