Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

ASV Scanning

What is PCI DSS ASV Scanning?

A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Approved Scanning Vendor Scan (PCI DSS ASV Scanning) is a mandated vulnerability scanning required to be conducted by banks, merchants, and payment card-related service providers.

Why Conduct PCI DSS ASV Scanning?

All companies that process and store client’s payment card transaction details are required to maintain their network security by the detailed specifications stated under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Failure to demonstrate compliance can result in severe restrictions being placed on merchants by the card issuers, including the ultimate sanction of withdrawal of card authorization facilities.

The table below is the overview of merchant validation requirement that requires PCI DSS ASV scanning:







Level 1
