Approved scanning vendors

ASV scans are needed as a part of PCI DSS compliance. You just can’t do without them. So it’s good to know that we are approved by the PCI Security Standards Council to provide ASV scans. These are more in-depth than a standard VA scan, have strict requirements, and rely on the ingenuity and experience of our SOC staff.

Frequently asked questions

What is an ASV scan?

An ASV scan is essentially a more in-depth vulnerability scan that can only be performed by an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV). An ASV scan will scour your network and flag up any vulnerability found, allowing you to take action against them. Quarterly scans are mandatory under PCI DSS compliance.

Who needs an ASV scan?

ASV scans are a requirement for PCI DSS compliance. Any company handling credit card information needs to remain PCI compliant. Any company looking to become compliant and those looking to maintain compliance will need to undergo quarterly ASV PCI scans.

How much does an ASV scan cost?

Such scans are usually grouped in with a PCI compliance project. On their own, the price can vary depending on the scope. The larger the environment, the longer the scan will take. An approved scanning vendor will be able to give you an up-to-date quote.
