Bit9 Parity enables Pinnacle clients to control and lockdown their workstations to meet and exceed the requirements of PCI DSS standards while maintaining the Windows user interface. Bit9 Parity is a flexible application that effectively uses both whitelisting and lock down technology to give retailers the ability to control access on their store systems. Bit9 Parity allows retailers to comply with PCI DSS requirement #5. It is not a compensating control, it IS the control, and further anti-virus protection is not necessary. Contact Pinnacle to arrange for a demo or to purchase Bit9 products.
