Approved Scanning Vendor

An Approved Scanning Vendor or ASV is a service provider who is certified by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Council to provide network scanning services in accordance with the PCI Data Security Standards (DSS). The ASV will scan the customers network on at-least quarterly basis, comparing the results of the scan against risks and reporting to the customer any potential non-compliances and risks seen.
