Lists of frequently asked questions
Does your anti-virus have a PCI DSS certificate of compliance?
PCI DSS standards require only the fact that an anti-virus is being used and don’t make any claims about the functionality and features of the solution being used. Moreover, these standards stipulate the requirements for protecting devices in general, not their separate components. Therefore, the certificate isn’t provided for anti-viruses.
‘But Symantec has a PCI DSS certificate of compliance!’
Symantec has more than just anti-viruses in its portfolio. And the certificate you mentioned doesn’t belong to anti-virus software.
