"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

PCI, as in Payment Card Industry, or as in Peripheral Component Interconnect?
As far as I know there is no such thing as 'free' PCI (as in payment card industry) check.
Any company that does the check is liable if it was wrong so part of the fee would be insurance to make sure they are covered.
The best you might be able to get is google 'free pci scan' and sign up with a real company that does the scans and offers a free 14 day trail type thing and cancell it on the 13th day :)

They will probably hound you for months afterwards (as I said nothing is free) and also they may try charging you anyway.
The PCI group will also probably not be happy with the report if it says 'TRIAL' in big letters accross it.

The best way is to find a good but reasonably cheap company and pay.


I get scans free from mcafee (used to be scanalert) who offer an excellent service. I am not sure if they are still free.
