"The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability."
External vulnerability scanning is a process designed to detect, identify and classify system weaknesses from outside your IT infrastructure on all external-facing hosts of your PCI DSS assessment scope.
External vulnerability scanning is required for compliance with PCI DSS requirement 11.2.2, which calls for:
- The scanning must performed via Approved Scanning Vendors (ASV) that are approved by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
- The scanning is performed quarterly and/or after significant changes to the network or applications.
