PCI DSS Success: Achieving Compliance and Increasing Web Application Availability - Protecting Web Applications and Cardholder Information
Source: Citrix Systems
Introduced in 2004 - but with roots dating back to 2001 as part of the Visa Cardholder Information Security Program - the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) can hardly be described as new. What is relatively new, however, is the mounting pressure to achieve compliance with it, along with a shift in its status from "Best Practice" to "Requirement" for guidelines applicable to Web-facing applications. This paper elaborates on the changing nature of the PCI DSS landscape and its requirements. It then identifies applicable application networking compliance solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc., and provides recommendations to help ensure that organizations achieve PCI DSS compliance relative to their business-critical Web applications and accompanying information resources.
