Are Your Data Transfers PCI DSS Compliant? Find Out with the Security Settings Audit Report from GoAnywhere.

Complying with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is mandatory for every organization around the world that processes credit or debit card information. GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer has several features, like detailed event logs and role-based security, to help users eliminate the security vulnerabilities that PCI DSS was designed to combat.

But PCI DSS requirements are complicated, and making sure you have checked all the boxes is often a time-consuming process for IT teams. Failing a PCI DSS audit comes with hefty fines, so you don’t want to leave anything to chance. One important aspect of achieving compliance is securing your data transfers. GoAnywhere users have a quick and easy way to ensurethat their GoAnywhere implementation is compliant with PCI DSS requirements for protecting data transfers: the Security Settings Audit Report. Painlessly checking data transfers off the list makes achieving overall PCI DSS compliance much simpler. 


GoAnywhere Advanced Reporting Module

GoAnywhere helps you manage and monitor your system information and file transfer activity with a variety of detailed PDF reports. The Security Settings Audit Report is one of several reports that can be generated on-demand through the browser-based console or scheduled and distributed automatically.

The Security Settings Audit Report

For each of over 60 security settings, the report will indicate the status of your GoAnywhere installation. There are five possible outcomes for each setting tested:

  • Pass: The setting meets the PCI DSS requirement.
  • Fail: The setting does not meet the PCI DSS requirement. In this case, you will also be given a recommendation for remedying the problem.
  • Warning: You will need to look into this issue further to determine if you are compliant. Recommended actions are provided.
  • Not Applicable: A check on this setting is not required, typically due to GoAnywhere features that you are not licensed to use.
  • Fatal: A configuration problem is preventing GoAnywhere from accessing the appropriate data.

In addition to the status check and recommended actions, the report lets you know which section of PCI DSS the setting applies to.

The enhanced Security Settings Audit Report released with GoAnywhere version 5.4 includes some new checks. The report now ensures that Gateway is being used for inbound connections, that Gateway's control channel is protected with SSL/TLS and a shared secret value, that Admin users are not allowed to view Resource passwords, and that Admin users follow password age and history restrictions.
