Why should I run a PCI Technical report?

The PCI Technical Report can be used to help you identify and fix vulnerabilities in order to pass PCI compliance. This report displays your overall PCI compliance status (PASS or FAIL), the PCI compliance status for each scanned host, and the vulnerabilities detected on each host.

How do I run it?

Go to VM/VMDR > Reports > Templates. Find the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Technical Report template and select Run from the Quick Actions menu.

Can I submit this report for PCI certification?

No. This report is not eligible for PCI certification, meaning that it cannot be submitted to your acquiring banks to demonstrate compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard.

Use the Share with PCI feature to share a PCI scan with your PCI Merchant account in order to generate a PCI network report and complete the required actions for PCI certification according to the latest PCI DSS requirements.

Tell me about the overall compliance status

The overall compliance status is PASS when all hosts in the report passed the PCI compliance requirements. The status is FAIL when at least one host in the report failed the PCI compliance requirements.

Tell me about the host's security risk rating

The host's security risk rating is equal to the highest severity level detected on the host. This is used when determining whether the host passed or failed.

Which vulnerabilities do I have to fix?

The vulnerabilities with the FAIL status must be remediated to pass the PCI compliance requirements. The vulnerabilities that do not show a PCI status are not in scope for PCI, but we do recommend that you remediate them in order of severity.

What criteria is used to determine compliance status?

We use the PCI severity level and other criteria, as defined by the PCI Security Standards Council, to determine whether a detected vulnerability passes or fails the PCI compliance requirements. Please note that the PCI severity level, based on CVSS score, is not the only criteria used to calculate a vulnerability's pass/fail status. A vulnerability may pass or fail PCI compliance based on the type of exploit. For example, a denial of service vulnerability will pass PCI compliance regardless of its CVSS score.
