Foregenix, a UK-based provider of digital security solutions, has introduced Fscout, a cardholder data discovery software that helps in identifying any unprotected and legacy cardholder data on laptops, desktops and servers across a business.

Fscout alerts clients and identifies the unprotected cardholder data so that it can be securely removed or encrypted to reduce the business exposure, PCI scope and risk of data compromise.

Foregenix has claimed that solution can also be used to reduce the associated costs of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) across the enterprise.

The Fscout’s system scanning functionality, combined with centralized and customizable reporting capabilities assists security managers in identifying and addressing future cardholder ‘data leaks’ across the organization, according to the Foregenix.
