Akamai Client-Side Protection & Compliance provides extensive visibility into the client-side attack surface to protect against end-user data exfiltration and shield websites from JavaScript threats. It is designed to detect malicious script behavior in real- time and deliver actionable alerts so security teams can quickly mitigate harmful activity. With purpose-built PCI DSS v4.0 compliance capabilities, Client-Side Protection & Compliance helps security teams streamline compliance workflows and meet the latest JavaScript security requirements.

Critical PCI DSS v4.0 compliance capabilities include:

  • Script inventory management (satisfies PCI DSS v4.0 requirement 6.4.3) — Provides an inventory of JavaScript loaded and executed on protected payment pages. Users can easily record written justifications for each observed script. The solution automates as much of the justification setting as possible via predefined justifications and rules, substantially reducing compliance efforts.

  • PCI DSS v4.0 dashboard (satisfies PCI DSS v4.0 requirements 6.4.3 and 11.6.1) — Gain compliance insights with one click. A comprehensive dashboard addresses each component of requirements 6.4.3 and 11.6.1 directly within the product. Security teams can ensure script authorization and behavioral integrity, protect against payment page tampering, and keep up-to-date with script inventory management with a single view to ease the auditing process.

  • Dedicated PCI alerts (satisfies PCI DSS v4.0 requirements 6.4.3 and 11.6.1) — Receive immediate and actionable alerts on PCI-related events for real-time mitigation. This includes notification of data exfiltration, unauthorized scripts, tampering of protection for configured payment pages, and unauthorized HTTP header modifications.

"With the deadline for PCI DSS v4.0 compliance fast approaching, Akamai Client-Side Protection & Compliance helps simplify the complex compliance process, and grants businesses the peace of mind that end-user payment card data is protected," said Rupesh Chokshi, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Akamai's Application Security Group. "These new capabilities are designed to streamline compliance workflows and help our customers easily manage JavaScript executing on their website's payment pages. It safeguards end-user payment card data within the browser and provides security teams with control over the entire client-side attack surface."
