McAfee PCI Certification Service - Simple, reliable, affordable PCI compliance from the world's largest PCI scan vendor

 

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was instituted by the payment card industry as a means to protect card shoppers from joining the enormous number of victims of credit card data theft by hackers. Every organization that captures, processes or stores credit card data must be able to demonstrate proof of compliance with the PCI DSS. The PCI DSS is a global standard, with PCI compliance expected of any entity that stores, processes or transmits card-holder data, regardless of its geographic location.

 

McAfee is trusted by tens of thousands of clients around the world (government agencies, on-line retailers, manufacturers, non-profit organizations) to audit their initial and on-going PCI compliance status. The McAfee PCI Certification Service offers step-by-step guidance and real-time analysis of your compliance status, so that you can navigate and complete the PCI DSS requirements quickly, easily, confidently and successfully.

PCI compliance validation and certification

 

Distinct and separate from compliance with the PCI DSS are its validation and certification, whereby entities actually demonstrate and verify their compliance status. PCI compliance validation requirements are based on the number of transactions annually, the potential risk, and the degree of exposure brought into the payment system by merchants and payment service providers.
