    The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is the global information security standard for organizations that process, store, or transmit data with any of the major credit card brands. More and more organizations are looking for compliance with this standard.

    This IBM® Redpaper™ describes how the features and functions of IBM Spectrum™ Virtualize help organizations towards compliance of their IT infrastructure on relevant areas of the PCI-DSS standard.

    IBM Spectrum Virtualize™ is the software common to all IBM Storwize® products such as IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC), IBM Storwize V5000 family, IBM Storwize V7000, IBM FlashSystem® V9000, and IBM Spectrum Virtualize as Software. Therefore, all recommendations in this paper equally apply to these storage products.
