Why do I need to have PCI ASV Scans?

  • For compliance - Customers expect that any company that accepts, processes, transmits or stores credit/payment card information must comply with the PCI DSS, a standard set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
  • For increased sales - Increase shopper confidence by stating that you and your website(s) are PCI DSS compliant and that customer card details are protected from hackers.
  • To avoid penalties - Failure to comply with the PCI DSS may result in heavy fines, restrictions or permanent expulsion from card acceptance programs
