Robust, Reliable and Comprehensive Solutions
Retail organisations face a number of complex challenges. Geographically distributed sites all require connectivity to corporate for mission-critical applications, yet small sites often do not have dedicated IT staff. This can pose significant problems when rolling out new sites or managing/maintaining existing stores, as well as when deploying wireless LANs.
There is a huge burden placed on corporate IT, which must configure new VPN routers, install client software, instruct users on how to work with the network, and monitor its performance. There is also the introduction of new interactive displays and hot spot offerings that require guest access for shoppers that are easy to use and distinctly separate from corporate networks.
In addition wireless technologies in retail has created a new avenue for data breaches, avoiding traditional security architectures. These breaches in the retail industry have exploited wireless vulnerabilities. Attackers have been able to access sensitive information such as credit/debit cards resulting in brand damage, financial/regulatory liabilities and retail business disruption. Meanwhile, security mandates – particularly the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard are among the strictest in any industry.
