Approved Scan Vendors, commonly known as ASV, is a PCI SSC notified body that provides a range of data security services to evaluate how an organization’s PCI DSS meets specific scanning requirements.
Approved Scan Vendors, commonly known as ASV, is a PCI SSC notified body that provides a range of data security services to evaluate how an organization’s PCI DSS meets specific scanning requirements. A PCI ASV scan is essential for an external vulnerability coming from outside an organization’s network or website.
ASV (Approved Scan Providers) scan is an external vulnerability scan performed to verify that organizations comply with PCI DSS Requirement 11.2.2. PCI SSC adds a vendor to its list of Approved Scan Vendors after testing the vendor’s set of security services and tools, called an ASV scan solution.
Perhaps the most controversial of all Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requirements is #11, where all payment accepting organizations must perform quarterly internal and external scans by an approved scan vendor. These scans are also known together as ASV vulnerability scans. But that’s not all. If your organization accepts payment cards regardless of your level:
- Perform ASV scans,
- Must use an approved PCI scan vendor,
- It should fix any problems that the scans find, and
- It must send the approved reports to the relevant bank.
Your website needs ASV (Approved Scan Vendor) scans at least quarterly to meet (Data Security Standard) DSS requirements. PCI scan tests are essential for known vulnerabilities or security vulnerabilities. If any negative grades are found, your scan will let you know where your security is weak and what to do to fix the issues.
Quarterly scans are mandatory, but you can use your account licensed to you to scan your website more often (as well as daily). There is no extra charge for more frequent scanning and may be scanned more often than once every three months, depending entirely on how you feel about your organization’s security needs.
CertBy will do your ASV scans in quarters that are mandatory for PCI DSS. It is even possible to scan your system with your ASV account provided to you if you wish.
