Acuity releases free PCI DSS compliance analysis software

Acuity says that the PCI DSS compliance management tool is configured with the detailed PCI DSS requirements and security assessment procedures. When used with the firms STREAM Integrated Risk Manager software it will, the firm adds, help automate your PCI compliance management.

By taking this approach, Acuity claims that this will mitigate the risk of incidents resulting from non-compliance, meaning companies cab also save costs associated with crisis responses, direct losses and reputational damage.

This approach, he added, is based on easy-to-use, accessible tools that identify, log and report incidents or near misses - and use this information to continually improve the PCI compliance management process.
