PCI Compliance with Versa Secure Cloud IP

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is the security standard for any organization that handles credit card payments from the major card schemes. The standard is mandated by the various card brands and the Payment Card Security Standards Council. As retail businesses begin to rearchitect and software-define their WAN edge, they need SD-WAN solutions that meet PCI-DSS standards for securing customer data.

This whitepaper will provide a summary and explanation of how Versa Networks Secure Cloud IP software platform addresses PCI-DSS and enables business organizations to adhere to compliance. Versa Secure Cloud IP is a cloud-native multi-tenant software platform that delivers software-defined Layer 3 [routing] to Layer 7 [security] services with full programmability and automation. The Versa Secure Cloud IP software platform addresses SD-WAN, SD-Security and SD-Branch use-cases for the WAN Edge. This unique approach delivers multi-functions in a single unified software platform that consists of three software components:

  • Versa VOS™ (formerly FlexVNF) - the multi-service (network, security, SD-WAN) software which is deployed at the business edge (branch, cloud).
  • Versa Director - the single-pane-of-glass management software component responsible for configuration, monitoring and provisioning.
  • Versa Analytics - the big-data analytics software engine responsible for historical and real-time collection of network, security and application analytics to deliver insights into SD-WAN fabric policy adherence and performance.
