Managed Segmentation Validation
Segmentation is an essential control in limiting scope for PCI & other GRC compliance obligations. By conducting either regular scans from business networks against your payment card data environments, nGuard helps your organization to ensure that segmentation is properly implemented and in-scope systems are minimized.
What is Segmentation Validation?
Segmentation validation is one of the most important methods for limiting in scope PCI systems and networks.
In order to determine scope for PCI DSS compliance, many organizations choose to segment their internal network into smaller sections in order to separate payment card data from other business processes. nGuard performs this service with expert pen testers which are guided and directed by nGuard’s PCI QSA team.
nGuard provides professional deliverables that show what types of traffic are allowed into the PCI networks.
With each segmentation analysis, nGuard will publish a segmentation report that summarizes the traffic allowed from tested business networks into the targeted payment card data networks. These reports can be furnished to your PCI QSA auditor in support of the annual audit requirement.
Do you have limited internal staffing or network security expertise?
Regular segmentation validation is time intensive. Most organizations don’t have the staffing or expertise to perform consistent segmentation validation. nGuard’s Managed Segmentation Validation handles all aspects and ensures the reporting gets done on time, every time.
