Mako Merchant PCI Helps Merchants Satisfy Additional PCI Requirements

Merchant PCI Services Add Network Vulnerability Scanning, SAQ Tools, and More to Mako’s PCI-Compliance Offerings

ELGIN, IL, September 9, 2019 – In addition to providing secure equipment, encrypted data transmission and robust PCI DSS configuration options, Mako Networks now offers enhanced Merchant PCI services to assist merchants with their quarterly network vulnerability scans, semi-annual network configuration reviews, and annual Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) filings that are needed to demonstrate PCI compliance. New Mako Central Management System (CMS) features for Merchant PCI services include a PCI Dashboard, internal network scanning, external vulnerability scanning, automated SAQ tools for each merchant location and enterprise-wide security templates integrated with the SAQ automation tools.

The new PCI Dashboard illustrates a variety of status indicators for each merchant location on a single map. See at a glance which locations have deployed the PCI template, which have run network vulnerability scans, or which have filed an SAQ, for example.

Network vulnerability scans can be scheduled to run as often as needed, can check all devices on a payment network for PCI vulnerabilities, and can even suggest how to resolve identified issues. Results of each scan are available in the Mako CMS for review and later reference.

“The ultimate goal of Mako’s Merchant PCI services is to make compliance with PCI DSS more achievable and easier for merchants. Helping merchants accurately complete and timely file their annual merchant SAQ, is just one of the ways Mako helps merchants stay compliant,” said Simon Gamble, President of Mako Networks. “It simplifies the process for each location by pre-populating responses and settings from templates for the entire retail brand, franchise group, or any custom classification desired. With a step-by-step wizard interface and automatic reminders of when to complete and file SAQs, Mako’s Merchant PCI services make it easier than ever for merchants to maintain PCI compliance.”

All Mako customers have the option to add Merchant PCI services to their business. A dedicated vulnerability scanning appliance will be installed in the merchant’s network.
