Internal and External PCI Security Scans (ASV)

To prove PCI DSS compliance, companies that process, store or forward credit card data must regularly scan their IT systems for vulnerabilities.

As an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), we are accredited by the PCI Security Standards Council and thus qualified to perform external PCI security scans (ASV scans). Our external and internal security scans enable you to meet PCI DSS requirements 11.3.1 and 11.3.2 (PCI DSS v4.0), or 11.2.1 and 11.2.2 (PCI DSS v3.2.1).

External PCI Security Scan (ASV Scan)

Requirement 11.3.2 (v4.0) / 11.2.2 (v3.2.1)

With the external PCI DSS Security Scan, you check your IT systems for vulnerabilities on a quarterly basis and thus fulfill requirement 11.3.2 of the PCI DSS.

Important: New in PCI DSS v4.0

In version 4.0 of PCI DSS, organizations are now also required to have regular ASV scans performed, demonstrating compliance through a self-assessment with SAQ A.

Sign up. Scan. Compliant

Our usd PCI DSS platform effectively supports you in proving your PCI DSS compliance. Wizard-supported, you are guided here through all the steps you need for successful certification.

After successful completion of your ASV scan, you will receive the Attestation of Scan Compliance and a detailed technical and management report. In case of PCI-relevant findings, you can perform unlimited re-scans free of charge - until your scan result is PCI DSS compliant.
