PCI Compliance vs legacy services
Posted on 2014-12-17
I administrate for a network that just this year started being required to meet PCI compliance. We signed up with a cloud-based security scanning service, which finds issues with a couple different servers, both boiling down to the machines being out of date. One is an Xserve running OS X Server (10.5 Leopard), the other is a Dell PowerEdge running Windows Server 2003. Both have all available updates/patches, both are no longer supported or updated by their manufacturer any more. Our firewall is a Checkpoint Safe@Office 500.
These machines run services that the company and clients use, I can't just turn off the relative port forwards on the firewall to satisfy reported compliance scan vulnerabilities. Budget constraints do not allow us to purchase updated servers/software, so I'm seeking alternate firewall configuration suggestions (if possible) for keeping these machines' available to LAN and WAN users, while satisfying issues identified in the compliance reports.
