Using LepideAuditorTM for PCI Compliance

All server components, including Active Directory, Group Policy Objects, Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint and File Server, should meet the requirements of different sections of PCI compliance. Organisations must make sure they have records available to prove that they are compliant. These records can only be generated through in-depth auditing of these servers and putting together detailed reports. Native auditing has numerous drawbacks when it comes to this. In many cases, it is either too time consuming or too complex a process to be viable. LepideAuditor simplifies IT auditing tasks and provides a single platform with which to audit multiple instances of different servers. It also contains many pre-defined reports within a PCI compliance section that have been specifically tailored to help you meet these requirements.

Audit unauthorized access to payment data

Audit Access to Payments Data

Any access to payment data needs to be recorded in order to ensure that no unauthorized activities are taking place and that the sensitive data is safely stored. LepideAuditor contains in-depth auditing reports that enable you to monitor and report on every access made to files, folders and mailboxes. You can get real-time alerts on any access made to critical data or mailboxes delivered as emails to selected recipients or as push notifications to the LepideAuditor App.

Audit permissions changes of users who have access to payment data

Audit Users of Payments Data

Any Active Directory user that has the ability to create, delete or modify payment data must have their actions closely monitored and audited. Any changes in their permissions should be made clear to the administrators and other concerned persons in order to ensure a policy of least privilege is upheld. LepideAuditor displays real-time reports on the activities of Active Directory users. Each change is audited in real-time and an alert is sent to the intended recipients via email or push notifications on the LepideAuditor App.

Audit changes made to devices storing payment data

Audit Computers Storing Payments Data

Computers that store payment data are required to be audited as per PCI standards. This is to ensure that accesses and changes taking place on that particular computer are authorized and the payment data is secure. LepideAuditor provides dedicated reports to keep track of changes made to computer objects. Real-time information helps administrators maintain awareness on critical issues that may arise due to any unwanted change.

Keep check on user groups modifications

Keep a Check on User Groups

Access permissions are often assigned to users through groups. This means that any changes in group memberships may result in excessive permissions being awarded to junior members of staff. When this occurs in relation to payment data, PCI compliance comes into play. LepideAuditor helps you keeps track of all changes made to Active Directory and Exchange Server groups. It notifies administrators in real-time about any critical change taking place in these servers.

Maintain least privilege policy by tracking permission changes
