Configuresoft Releases Free Utility to Help Ensure PCI DSS Standard v1.2 Compliance

Configuresoft, an enterprise server configuration management company, announces the limited availability of Configuresoft Compliance Checker for PCI DSS v1.2, the industry's first-ever free downloadable utility that helps organizations validate IT infrastructure compliance with the just-released Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) v1.2.

Configuresoft launched Compliance Checker for PCI DSS v1.2 at the National Retail Federation's 98th Annual Convention & Expo in New York as a must-have utility for delivering audit-quality reports that help organizations ensure the security and compliance of servers and desktops handling credit card data. Compliance Checker for PCI DSS v1.2 validates the security posture of each machine against the recommendations of PCI DSS v1.2 and identifies non-compliant configurations. To help organizations prepare for a successful PCI audit, the utility also includes the ability to complete the appropriate self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ).

Many of the world's leading companies use Configuresoft solutions to maintain PCI-DSS compliance. Its flagship Enterprise Configuration Manager (ECM) enables full visibility into IT infrastructure to help enterprises automate IT tasks to reduce errors, improve operational efficiency, manage virtual sprawl, and understand the impact of both planned and unplanned changes.

Configuresoft's Compliance Checker for PCI DSS v1.2 is based upon the PCI DSS templates developed by Configuresoft's Center for Policy and Compliance (CP&C). The utility is built upon the same successful platform of the previously released Compliance Checker for VMware ESX, which provides compliance checks against VMware hardening guidelines and Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks for thousands of VMware customers.

Compliance Checker for PCI DSS v1.2 will be available for free download from Configuresoft on January 19, 2009 at
