Achieving and maintaining compliance with PCI standards is complex and costly, and fines for non-compliance can be very large. PCI compliance is especially painful for companies that must provide high-risk users with access to critical IT infrastructure, because:

o Policies and controls put in place for common trusted users don’t address compliance requirements for high-risk users
o Deploying effective PCI controls has historically meant sacrificing operational efficiency
o Companies with legacy infrastructure (i.e., POS systems) have been forced to choose between building a custom solution and ripping out/replacing their infrastructure
o Remaining compliant between audits or self- assessments is elusive but essential, and requires an ongoing effort.

High-risk users - including internal or external IT administrators, outside application developers, vendors and mobile technical employees - present unique challenges in meeting PCI requirements because they are technically savvy, require elevated privileges, have access to sensitive data and work inside a complex IT infrastructure. Any security solution must enable these users to do their work with maximum efficiency. The Xceedium solution has been widely adopted by Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 organizations in the enterprise and middle markets because it is easy to install and maintain and provides an immediate solution that ensures PCI compliance.

The Xceedium GateKeeper™ appliance provides a cost-effective entitlement management solution for high-risk users that comprehensively addresses the requirements of the PCI Standard, including:

o An additional layer of centralized authentication for high-risk users with access to card data
o Access via a secure SSL channel for data in transit
o Centralized enforcement of authorization policy
o Complete monitoring and recording of user activity tied to a unique ID/source IP for accountability and audit
o Comprehensive, centralized reporting to validate compliance

The Xceedium GateKeeper integrates seamlessly with existing infrastructure without requiring rip-out or replacement of POS or other legacy systems, providing an automated way to meet PCI compliance requirements. Its restrictive security model implements and validates authorization controls, and compartmentalizes user access while containing users to their authorized areas. Xceedium GateKeeper enables businesses to meet PCI compliance requirements while increasing operational efficiency.
