How RaptorEye will comply you with certification

PCI-DSS Certification

PCI-DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. It's a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. Developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), these standards aim to protect cardholder data from theft and fraud.

PCI-DSS consists of 12 requirements that cover various aspects of data security, including network security, encryption, access control, and regular monitoring and testing. Compliance with PCI-DSS is mandatory for any organization that handles credit card data, and failure to comply can result in fines, penalties, and even the loss of the ability to process credit card payments.

Overall, PCI-DSS helps to create a secure environment for cardholder data, instilling confidence in consumers that their financial information is being handled safely by businesses.

Purpose of PCI-DSS Certification

The primary purpose of PCI-DSS is to enhance payment card data security and protect cardholder information from theft and fraud. By establishing a set of comprehensive security standards and best practices, PCI-DSS aims to:

Protect Cardholder Data

PCI-DSS helps ensure that sensitive payment card data, such as cardholder names, account numbers, and expiration dates, is securely stored, transmitted, and processed.

Prevent Data Breaches

By implementing security controls and protocols, PCI-DSS aims to reduce the risk of data breaches that could result in the theft of cardholder information.

Maintain Trust

Compliance with PCI-DSS helps businesses maintain the trust of their customers by demonstrating a commitment to safeguarding their financial data.

Reduce Fraud

Secure handling of payment card data helps reduce the risk of fraud, benefiting both businesses and consumers.

Establish Industry Standards

PCI-DSS provides a unified set of standards and best practices that businesses across the payment card industry can follow, promoting consistency and interoperability.


Raptor-Eye is a powerful open-source security platform that provides a comprehensive solution for threat detection, incident response, and compliance management. It is designed to help organizations secure their infrastructure by providing visibility into their systems and networks. Below are the core security features of Raptor-Eye

  1. Log Data Analysis
  2. Raptor-Eye provides extensive capabilities for log collection and analysis. It can aggregate, analyze, and index logs from various sources, including servers, network devices, and applications. This helps in identifying suspicious activities, system errors, and potential security threats.

  3. File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)
  4. This feature monitors and detects changes in the content of files and directories. Raptor-Eye alerts the administrators if it detects unauthorized modifications to critical system files, configuration files, or registry keys. This is essential for detecting potential breaches or ensuring that systems remain in compliance with established security policies.

  5. Vulnerability Detection
  6. Raptor-Eye integrates with vulnerability databases and scanners to identify vulnerabilities in the software installed on endpoints. It regularly checks and reports on known vulnerabilities that could affect your systems, allowing for timely remediation and patch management.

  7. Configuration Assessment
  8. Raptor-Eye evaluates the configuration settings of its monitored systems against predefined security policies to ensure compliance with various standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and others. This helps organizations ensure continuous compliance and identifies misconfigurations that may lead to security breaches.

  9. Intrusion Detection
  10. Raptor-Eye acts as a host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS), detecting malware, rootkits, and suspicious anomalies. It uses signature-based and anomaly-based detection methods to identify potential threats across the monitored systems.

  11. Cloud Security Monitoring
  12. Raptor-Eye extends its monitoring capabilities to cloud environments, providing security visibility into cloud infrastructure. It supports major cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, monitoring their logs and ensuring the security of assets hosted in the cloud.

  13. Active Response
  14. This feature automatically reacts to security incidents by executing predefined actions such as blocking an IP address, modifying firewall rules, or isolating affected devices. This helps in containing threats and mitigating damage in real-time.

  15. Regulatory Compliance
  16. Raptor-Eye helps organizations meet regulatory compliance requirements by providing reports and tools designed to assist in the compliance of rules and regulations specific to each industry, such as GDPR, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and more.

  17. Threat Intelligence Integration
  18. Raptor-Eye integrates with external threat intelligence sources, enriching incident data with information about known threats. This helps in identifying malicious IPs, domains, URLs, and file hashes that have been seen in attacks elsewhere.

  19. Security Incident Management
  20. Raptor-Eye includes a powerful incident response system that helps in tracking, investigating, and resolving incidents. It provides detailed alerts and has integration capabilities with SIEMs for enhanced incident analysis and visualization.

Deployment and Integration

Raptor-Eye is designed to be highly scalable and can be deployed across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. It also integrates well with a variety of other tools such as ELK Stack for data analytics and visualization, making it a versatile choice for enterprise security needs.

Raptor-Eye is designed to be highly scalable and can be deployed across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. It also integrates well with a variety of other tools such as ELK Stack for data analytics and visualization, making it a versatile choice for enterprise security needs.

  1. Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
  2. Raptor-Eye provides powerful IDS capabilities that monitor and analyze system and network activities to detect suspicious behaviors or known threats. It uses a combination of signaturebased detection (comparing against known threat signatures) and anomaly-based detection (identifying deviations from normal operations). Alerts can be configured to notify administrators of potential security incidents.

  3. Built-in Firewall
  4. Raptor-Eye itself does not include a built-in firewall. Instead, it integrates with existing firewall solutions to monitor firewall logs and manage firewall rules based on alerts. For instance, Raptor-Eye’s active response feature can modify firewall settings to block traffic from a suspicious IP address in response to detected threats.

  5. Sniffing (Network Monitoring)
  6. Raptor-Eye does not directly perform network packet capturing or sniffing. However, it can integrate with network monitoring tools that capture and analyze traffic (such as Suricata or Bro/Zeek). Raptor-Eye can ingest alerts from these tools and apply its own analysis and response mechanisms to enhance overall network security.

  7. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
  8. Raptor-Eye excels in providing EDR functionalities. It continuously monitors endpoint data to detect and respond to threats.

  9. File Integrity Monitoring (FIM):
  10. Detects changes to the content of files and directories. Rootkit detection: Uses rootcheck to identify known rootkits. System inventory: Maintains detailed profiles of system configurations and software to help identify vulnerabilities.

Integration and Deployment

Raptor-Eye is highly adaptable and can be integrated into various environments.

  1. Cloud-based environments
  2. It supports AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, among others, providing security monitoring and compliance management. Hybrid environments: Can monitor both cloud and on-premises infrastructure.

  3. Data analysis and visualization
  4. Integrates with Elasticsearch and Kibana (part of the Elastic Stack) for advanced data processing, searching, and visualization capabilities.

    By installing Raptor-eye inside your infrastructure , the gap will be addressed which will be used by the organization to certify PCI-DSS compliance.
