Protecting Your Highly-Distributed Retail Network: Why PCI Compliance May Be No Bargain

Retailers, merchants and banks continue to struggle with evolving internal and external threats, IT information overload and compliance mandates. With continuous PCI pressure on merchants of all sizes, companies are torn between the "bare minimum" approach to satisfy the PCI auditors and an approach that implements the necessary controls to properly protect customer information.

Recent headlines suggest PCI compliance may not go far enough, leaving organizations vulnerable to data breaches. Whether you've passed a PCI audit or you're preparing for one, you need a comprehensive network security management strategy. According to IDC, "IT departments have moved away from a focus on a single type of [threat] protection, such as antivirus, toward a broader focus on today's complex threats designed to get past point-solution security and target multiple vulnerabilities in clients and corporate networks."*

This trend is especially relevant to highly-distributed retail organizations focused on:

  • Establishing a comprehensive IT security program as mandated by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)
  • Better protecting consumer data against a backdrop of increased credit card data theft
  • Improving consumer confidence by protecting confidential information
  • Avoiding clean-up costs caused by data breaches

Log on to this webcast and learn about a unique appliance-based solution that:

  • Integrates traditionally disparate network and security data
  • Provides a scalable network security management framework that will enable you to better centralize your security operations and detect today's more complex threats
  • Achieve operational efficiency through the management of logs, threats and compliance from a single console
