Read the press release.
Vulnerability scans are automated tests that locate vulnerabilities, or holes, in business environments that could allow a hacker access into a network to steal customer credit card data.
Not only are quarterly vulnerability scans one of the easiest and best things you can do to remain secure, they are also a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requirement for most merchants.

Holiday securityThe period between Thanksgiving and Christmas sees more frequent credit card purchases than any other time of year. In fact, according to CMO.com, total holiday season sales for retail are expected to reach $863 billion this year. The bummer is, this increase in transactions may also mean a potential increase in liability if a business has been breached.
Businesses can and should protect themselves from hackers trying to take advantage of the uptick in holiday transactions by running vulnerability scans as often as possible and fixing the problems those scans find immediately.
