Network Segmentation Pentesting (PCI DSS)

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) mandates that organizations handling payment card data implement robust network segmentation. This practice involves dividing the network into smaller, secure sections to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data. Our assessment verifies the effectiveness of these segmentation controls, ensuring compliance with PCI DSS requirements.

PCI DSS - Network Segmentation Penetration Testing is a thorough evaluation of your network's segmentation controls. We identify and address any flaws or misconfigurations that could expose your cardholder data environment (CDE) to unauthorized access.

Approach

Our proactive approach to network segmentation testing includes:

  • img

    Segmentation Analysis

    Evaluating your network's segmentation architecture and controls.

  • img

    Traffic Analysis

    Monitoring traffic flow between segments for any anomalies.

  • img

    Access Control Testing

    Assessing the effectiveness of access controls and boundary protections.

  • img

    Logging and Monitoring

    Reviewing mechanisms for detecting segmentation-related events.

  • img

    Reporting

    Providing comprehensive reports with identified issues and recommendations for improvement.

By engaging in our PCI DSS - Network Segmentation Penetration Testing, you ensure a proactivestance in protecting your cardholder data and maintaining compliance with industry standards.

Benefits

• PCI DSS Compliance: Our testing verifies that your network segmentation controls are
effective and compliant with PCI DSS requirements, helping you avoid regulatory
penalties.
• Reduced PCI Audit Scope: Effective network segmentation can limit the scope of your PCI
audits, making the compliance process more manageable and less time-consuming.
