Of the hundreds of products CRN looks at each year, Avenda's eTIPS was recognized as a product easing organizations' Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance efforts for its unique ability to secure user privileges and access rights to sensitive cardholder information, starting with the user and endpoint access point and extending to the enforcement of policies for the networking devices via 802.1x. Avenda's eTIPS addresses nine of the 12 requirements for PCI DSS compliance.

In one example, PCI DSS Requirement 10 provides guidelines for detailed logging and audit trails based on minimum data elements.
