Accelerating PCI Data Security Standard projects with Deep Security as a Service

Does your organization need to meet PCI DSS requirements? Are you struggling with multiple security tools? Or stretching your already overstretched team to prepare for an audit? Time to hit the accelerator with Trend Micro!

If your applications deal with credit or payment card data, you need to go through a long and cumbersome certification process outlined by the Payment Card Industry (PCI).


The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requires annual audits to ensure appropriate security controls and processes are being used for any applications that deal with sensitive customer data. 

If your applications are in the cloud, PCI compliance can be easier – as long as you choose the right service provider.

Trend Micro is happy to announce that the 2018 PCI re-certification for Deep Security as a Service (DSaaS) has completed successfully and the Attestation of Compliance (AOC) is now available for distribution to customers and partners.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers like AWS and Microsoft Azure have Level 1 PCI DSS certification. This means they have validated their security controls, people and processes with auditors and take care of many aspects that you would be responsible for if your application was in a physical data center.

If you also use third party Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings, they are included in the scope of your PCI audit! (as of the latest version 3 of the standard)

This means if you are using SaaS offerings for log management, automation, monitoring or security, they also need to be PCI DSS certified, even if the service doesn’t directly deal with cardholder data.

“Trend Micro™ Deep Security as a Service™ continues to be a PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider with its 2018/2019 re-certification! This means you can streamline your PCI DSS certification process and take more items off of your to do list.”
