About PCI Compliance Reports

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) specifies requirements to make sure that your firewall provides a secure solution for your network and all payment card data that is transmitted through your network. The PCI DSS security requirements apply to all the components of your network that connect to the cardholder data environment.

Your firewall is an essential requirement to keep your network in compliance with a PCI environment. The first requirement in the standard outlines why you must have a firewall and keep sensitive areas of your network separate. You can use Fireboxes to meet these requirements.

WatchGuard also helps you to address these specific PCI requirements:

WatchGuard reports include several predefined reports that provide information to help you make sure that your network is compliant with PCI requirements. These reports are included in the Compliance Reports group.
