/PRNewswire/ -- .conf2012 --
(NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading provider of software for real-time operational intelligence, today announced the general availability of the
Splunk App for PCI Compliance 2.0
Splunk App for PCI Compliance is for any organization looking for a simple, intuitive reporting and analysis solution that satisfies the requirements for Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. Together, the Splunk App for PCI Compliance and Splunk Enterprise
combine to create a highly scalable investigation and forensics platform as an integral part of an overall security strategy.
"The Splunk App for PCI Compliance was developed to make PCI compliance as easy as possible for businesses," said
, senior director of security and compliance marketing, Splunk. "Collecting and retaining data for audits is a daunting task, particularly since most PCI solutions require significant data normalization to deal with the wide variety of operational and security data formats. The Splunk App for PCI Compliance solves this challenge with out-of-the-box content for reporting and real-time monitoring of the enterprise."
PCI compliance is a requirement for any organization that accepts credit cards. The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) is the gold standard in the industry for securing this sensitive data and reducing credit card fraud.
The Splunk App for PCI Compliance 2.0 includes:
- High-level scorecards and reports for each PCI requirement
- Simple visualizations for indicating PCI compliance issues
- Prioritization of in-scope assets
- Operational, security and incident review and workflow capabilities
- Audit trail for log review and report accesses
Unlike most security and information event management (SIEM) products that supply their PCI solution as a stack of additional reports on top of their SIEM, the Splunk App and the core Splunk Enterprise software can be a complete stand-alone solution for PCI compliance provided as a powerful yet simple to use solution with incident review workflow, asset threat prioritization and requirement scorecards for PCI compliance.
