Easier PCI Cloud Compliance

Simplify the burden of PCI DSS compliance with Armor. Data workloads and applications protected by Armor inherit compliance controls. This means easier PCI assessments and heightened security.

Why Armor for PCI compliance?

  • PCI DSS 3.2.1-Compliant Solutions: Armor's cloud security solutions are compliant against PCI DSS 3.2.1. This means that our solutions are configured to meet standards set by the PCI Security Council.
  • Inherited Compliance Controls: Armor customers receive certification of compliance mapped against PCI DSS controls.
  • PCI DSS Compliance Expertise: Cloud-ready organizations trust us to protect their customers’ payment card-related data at all cost.
  • Security-driven Compliance: True cloud security means letting compliance be an outcome of a security program, not its driver.

Our purpose-built managed cloud security solutions were created to simplify compliance, minimizing PCI DSS-related anxiety and preventing breaches of payment card information.

Inherited PCI DSS Controls

Armor customers inherit Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 3.2.1 Compliance that addresses many of the controls mandated by the PCI Security Council. This means streamlined assessments, as well as cost savings, for organizations without robust cloud security programs.
