Check into using Ambiron. They are the largest PCI vendor to my knowledge.

Now if I could convince my bosses to dump the half-baked outfit we are using...

Consider finding a different PCI Scanning vendor.  We are struggling
along the same lines but this is an issue that may only be solved by a
host based firewall that forbids opening of ports not standardized /

After a recent external PCI Compliant scan one of my web servers failed because the scanner determine that "a port was open at the beginning of the scan, and is now closed...". I've tried all sorts of things to get this corrected the results remain. I talked with our scanning vendor they don't seem to have answer as to how to correct the problem. When I do a Nessus Scan on the site, Nessus reports the issue as a security note and risk factor of '0', however the my PCI scanning vendor reports the problem as a risk factor of 4 thus causing the server to fail the scan and resulting a non-compliance report.

I haven't been able to find anything on how to address this issue. Where should i look to resolve this problem
