Finding credit card data is one of the key and initial steps needed for compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). The standard clearly prohibits storage of card holder data (CHD) in an unencrypted manner.
ControlCase Data Discovery (CDD) addresses this key need of Credit Card Data Discovery and was one of the first comprehensive scanners that not only searches for credit and debit card data on file systems, but also in most commercial and open source databases, and all this searching is done WITHOUT installing any agents on any scanned system. We scan the whole enterprise from one location.
Our Credit Card Data Discovery software very rapidly helps define the scope of a PCI assessment or certification and helps concentrate the efforts of the assessment. It usually is an eye-opener for many organizations that are surprised by the unintended proliferation of credit card data within organizations once CDD scans their environment. This Credit Card Data Discovery helps organizations control the storage of the data or implement means to encrypt the data.
ControlCase Data Discovery has been used to scan PETABYTES of data on hundreds of thousands of servers, desktops and enterprise databases globally. It is reliable, has an extremely low impact on system resources and has been used globally for 5 years now by thousands of organizations to meet PCI DSS compliance.
