PCI DSS requires the deployment of antivirus on all systems typically infected by malware, such as Windows operating computers. Anti-virus software often offers every system inside a network an extra layer of protection.
Malicious software, commonly referred to as "malware" including worms, viruses and trojans, reaches the network during a number of business-approved activities, including employee email and Internet usage, mobile phones, and storage devices, resulting in system vulnerabilities being exploited.

PCI DSS GUIDE's aim is to clarify the process of PCI DSS compliance as well as to provide some common sense for that process and to help people preserve their security while they move through their compliance processes.
When it comes to securing firewall rules, firewalls have a sensible procedure to follow. Whether you're upgrading hardware or establishing a whole new environment, the order of the procedures will differ.
The PCI DSS requirements apply to all system components, including people, processes and technologies that store, process or transmit cardholder data or sensitive authentication data, included in or connected to the cardholder data environment.
Vulnerabilities are constantly found by malicious individuals and researchers, and new software is introduced to them. System components, processes, and custom applications should be periodically reviewed to ensure an evolving environment continues to represent security controls.
