About Quasar Scan
Quasar Scan is a complete cardholder data scanning solution that can help you in your PCI DSS compliance efforts, by providing accurate, real-time information about where credit card data is located in your systems.
It combines powerful scanning with automated and customisable filters, as well as clear data export, to bring you real cardholder data and actionable recommendations. Our proprietary IP also creates far fewer false positives, saving you from wasting significant amounts of time and money.
Whatever your situation, Quasar Scan will help you identify areas of risk, reduce compliance scope, and support effective data management practices.
What is Quasar Scan?
Simply put, Quasar Scan is a scan engine that looks for credit card holder data stored on your IT systems.
Like any sort of data scanner (for example, an antivirus scanner), Quasar Scan connects to your chosen scanning targets and then goes to work looking through all of your different file types and locations. Quasar Scan excels at automatically and manually filtering out non-credit card data to find actual cardholder data, and our proprietary-weighted scoring easily reduces false positives. Then, in an clear data export, you’ll see the real cardholder data you’re storing, along with the specific locations where it’s being stored. A skilled Quasar Scan technician can also be made available to provide customised, actionable recommendations.
This process will give you clarity about what credit card data you are holding, real insight about your processes, and confidence that you are PCI DSS compliant and therefore have a lower risk of data breach.
Who is Quasar Scan designed for?
Quasar Scan takes care of enterprises of all types and sizes. From multinational companies and national organisations to small brick and mortar shops and online retailers, Quasar Scan will reduce your risk, make sure you remain PCI compliant, and help protect you and your customers. Whether you have one computer, or one hundred, Quasar Scan is easy to use, offers valuable and clear reporting, and lets you feel confident that you’re doing the right thing.
We look after people who are enthusiastic about their data and want to proactively improve their processes, and others who have an assessment looming, or have had a data breach and just want to get their business back on track.
Additionally, Quasar Scan’s specially designed Card Scanning as a Service (CSaaS) model allows us to work with QSAs and other partners to harness the benefit of Quasar Scan, and effectively service their clients.
