nCircle Network Security, Inc. Launches PCI DSS Compliance Package for Small Businesses

nCircle Network Security, Inc. announced the integration of the nCircle Certified PCI Scan Service in the PureCloud security services platform. nCircle PureCloud users now have access to vulnerability scanning, web application scanning and automated PCI scanning in a single, easy-to-use solution that helps improve network security and achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The new PCI Scan Service enables smaller organizations and businesses to cost effectively achieve PCI compliance and improve network security. With an average of 5,000 new vulnerabilities discovered each year, regular or continuous vulnerability scanning is an essential security best practice. Recent studies show that over 70% of security threats are directed at web applications due to the quantity and value of the information they contain, a problem that's particularly acute for online merchants. Key features include: One-click report sharing that makes it easy to share PCI scan reports across the organization and with the issuing bank. Expanded subscription time periods that ensure customers have a full quarter to complete the PCI scanning and remediation process.

nCircle Announces IP360(TM) Users Can Create Custom Vulnerability Detection Rules Using the Well-Known Python Programming Language

nCircle announced that IP360(TM) users can now create custom vulnerability detection rules using the well-known Python programming language. The new tools augment nCircle's existing Advanced Security Profiling Language (ASPL), making it possible to rapidly build targeted, tailored vulnerability assessments for specific business requirements. Large, complex enterprise networks often include custom and legacy hardware applications. Complete assessment of these applications and devices for security weaknesses is unavailable using commercial scanners. This means that undetected security weaknesses can be exploited by attackers to gain access to critical business information. nCircle's new, extensible Python-based custom vulnerability assessment rules allow users to design vulnerability detection for internal applications and legacy hardware, which is considered out-of-scope for most commercial vulnerability scanners. Python-based custom rules allow users to combine advanced programming techniques with various forms of authenticated access, including: Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP); Windows Server Message Block (file and registry); Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Secure Shell (SSH). Custom Python-based vulnerability assessment rules can also implement detection using proprietary network communication protocols. nCircle IP360 users can collaborate with each other and VERT security engineers to share custom Python-based vulnerability assessment rules in a dedicated, online Suite360 user group.
