Point-of-Sale (POS) businesses are paranoid, with good reason, about protecting sensitive customer and company information. Financial institutions require that any company that stores, processes, or transmits credit card information comply with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards).
Companies that fail to comply are subject to fines, lawsuits, and can even be banned from processing credit cards. Worse, companies that are breached can find themselves in the news headlines, significantly impacting goodwill with customers, partners, and shareholders.
When properly configured, monitored, and maintained, Cradlepoint devices meet the requirements of PCI DSS 3.0. Enabling features include network segmentation (ethernet ports, SSIDs, and VLANs), stateful firewall, MAC/IP/
URL filtering, authentication/encryption, event logging, event alerts, time synchronization, and configuration/upgrade management from Cradlepoint Enterprise Cloud Manager. Required for PCI compliance, Cradlepoint Enterprise Cloud Manager runs in real time.
