Solution Ensures that PCI Compliance is Made Easier
Dallas, TX (September 26, 2017). At ASIS 2017 (Booth 3133), Viakoo, the security industry’s only provider of a proven means to proactively automate surveillance and access systems verification, is showcasing the ability to help ensure compliance with physical security controls in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) using the company’s Viakoo Predictive solution. PCI DSS compliance is required for any organization that stores, processes or transmits cardholder’s data.
Working in conjunction with Coalfire, a leading cyber risk management and compliance firm, the Viakoo Predictive product was found to fully automate the audit process for 22 specific controls around physical security, and partially fulfills the audit requirements for an additional 14 controls.
“Viakoo offers the only proactive and automated solution assessed by auditors for meeting controls in the PCI DSS” said Bud Broomhead, Chief Executive Officer of Viakoo. “This makes proving PCI compliance less costly to document by providing users with a comprehensive tool that validates the performance and length of data retention of their physical security systems.”
Many organizations that employ surveillance systems are required by regulations, industry standards or internal compliance standards to retain video evidence for a period of time (typically 30 to 90 days). Auditors for industry standards such as PCI, NERC, NIST, TIA-942, FedRAMP and others are now required to confirm that organizations systematically retain video data for the required retention period in order to achieve compliance certification. Viakoo provides the only patented solution available to prove data retention compliance.
Viakoo automatically verifies performance of physical security systems and delivers automated proof of networked physical security system compliance. Leveraging purpose-built technology Viakoo quickly and automatically detects physical security system failures, diagnoses problems, alerts users with repair information, and maintains historical records on operations. With Viakoo users improve physical surveillance and security reliability and performance, gain critical insight into physical security systems, capture valuable operational performance information, eliminate lapses in security coverage and automate reporting for compliance and auditing.
