New free PCI DSS compliance tool from Acuity
November 2011 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Acuity launches free application to measure, monitor and report on PCI-DSS compliance. Available for download from the Acuity website, the compliance software monitors progress against the six milestones in the PCI-DSS Prioritized Approach and will identify, assess, manage and report on risks to cardholder data. It will also track residual risk status in relation to performance of PCI controls and key metrics and provide visibility of information for auditors.
The free, single-user license of the PCI compliance tool is configured with detailed PCI DSS requirements and security assessment procedures. Used with a free version of Acuity’s STREAM Integrated Risk Manager software, it can be used to fully automate PCI compliance management functions, recording and maintaining the current status against PCI DSS and using sophisticated management reporting to view current and historical status with trend analysis. STREAM can be implemented as an Enterprise GRC solution for specific management systems, such as information risk, IT governance and business continuity.
