Survey on PCI: How it's Impacting Network Security

Ellen Messmer | March 2, 2011
A survey of 500 information technology professionals with responsibility to assure compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standard shows just over half find it "burdensome but necessary" in their organizations and about a third see it impacting their virtualized network environment

At the end of the day, "PCI is worthwhile," says Siedzik, noting that various projects, such as deploying the Bradford Networks network-access control products for the entire university staff and students to track network and ensure anti-virus use, was prompted a few years back in part to meet the PCI requirements.

When asked their sentiment about PCI compliance, 36% of respondents in the Cisco survey said, "It's necessary and I don't mind dealing with it," 51% said, "It's burdensome but necessary," 8% said, "It's burdensome and not necessary," and 5% answered, "It doesn't go far enough in protecting cardholder data."
