CrowdStrike Falcon® and PCI DSS Compliance

CrowdStrike Falcon®™ platform’s advanced prevention, detection and mitigation capabilities are ideal for organizations that need to protect endpoints and critical data from the latest threats. This is especially important to organizations that store, process, or transmit payment card data during day-to-day operations.

Merchants, payment processors, issuers, and service providers are required by the payment-acquiring banks to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) on an ongoing basis.

CrowdStrike engaged Coalfire, a leading independent security and risk management consulting firm, to assess CrowdStrike Falcon®’s functionality with respect to the PCI DSS v3.2 requirements and document how Falcon endpoint protection meets all elements of requirement No. 5: “Protect all systems against malware and regularly update anti-virus software or programs.” In addition, CrowdStrike Falcon® provides assistance with meeting four additional PCI requirements.
