Your PassPort to Compliance

CSP PassPort® and PCI-DSS Compliance

CSP PassPort provides important security features for NonStop servers (with or without Safeguard) and greatly expands the Guardian security package.

While Safeguard provides a range of authorization and authentication controls, additional controls are required to manage how users logon to TACL and/or OSH, and what privileged commands can then be used. At the same time, once logged on, it is critical to control what activities may then be carried out.

CSP PassPort addresses some of the following PCI-DSS requirements:

Requirement 7 Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know
Requirement 8 Identify and authenticate access to system components
Requirement 10 Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data
Requirement 12 Maintain a policy that addresses information security for all personnel
