Identifying non-compliances and vulnerabilities rapidly and comprehensively in VMware data centers is critical for protecting PCI Cardholder Data Environments.
This overview highlights the key differentiators between Runecast Analyzer and the vRealize Operations Compliance Pack for PCI.
Yes: There are 226 cross-referenced checks to verify whether the Cardholder Data Environment has non-compliances with PCI DSS controls.
Yes, but there are only 63 cross-referenced checks to verify whether the Cardholder Data Environment has non-compliances with PCI DSS controls.
The Runecast Analyzer covers 50 controls.
The PCI DSS profile covers 27 controls which are verified for non-compliances through automated checks.
Runecast Analyzer also provides coverage for a further 23 highly important controls in the standard through other functions in the application (such as Vulnerability Management and risk assessment)
The PCI DSS profile only covers 15 controls which are verified for non-compliances through automated checks.
Support for vSphere only.
v3.2.1 (latest version - Released May 2018, standard expiry date unknown as this is the latest version)
v 3.2 (Released April 2016, standard expiry date 1 January 2019)
N.B. VMware VCM (VMware Configuration Manager) only supports PCI DSS 3.1, with standard expiry date in the past: 31-Aug-16.
Yes, the specific and full content from the relevant control, and context from the relevant requirement area, in PCI DSS v3.2.1 is provided directly in the GUI for all non-compliance checks.
Yes, the PCI DSS standard "Prioritized Approach" is used. Issues can be ordered by the numbered PCI security milestones to help incrementally protect against the highest risk factors while on the road to PCI DSS compliance. This helps to prioritize efforts to lower the risk of cardholder data breaches sooner in the compliance process.
Yes, a full justification is provided showing how the specific check relates to the specific control in the standard, to provide a proper audit trail.
In cases where the check relates to certain sub-sections of the control, this detail is also provided.
Only the control ID number is stated and a brief description of the automated check.
Yes, full technical detail is provided for each check from the appropriate industry knowledge sources.
Only a brief description of the check is provided.
Yes, full technical detail from industry knowledge is provided so that you can understand the non-compliance and resolve it.
Only a brief description for the technical check is provided.
