Establishing, maintaining, and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for everyone in payment card processing—including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as companies that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data. With approximately three hundred individual requirements to address, organizations subject to the standard have their work cut out for them.

This white paper will explain how Palo Alto Networks® Next Generation Security Platform allows PCI system operators to significantly enhance security and exceed PCI DSS requirements through segmentation and mitigating risks of malware and unpatched systems.
