EMV: What It Really Does For Retailers
In the wake of the massive retail data breaches we’ve seen over the past 12 months, the organizations behind EMV (also known as Chip and PIN or smart cards) have become very vocal in promoting EMV’s ability to secure credit card data. Unfortunately, not everything we’re hearing about the technology is true.
The Aerohive Personalized Engagement Platform provides a flexible, high-performance Wi-Fi network with advanced security features that address PCI 3.0 requirements. Gain a highly secure way to personalize the shopping experience for in-store customers while complementing your PCI compliance goals.
Retail businesses are particularly vulnerable because of the volume of credit card information, the fact that this information is distributed among many locations, the lengthy amount of time it can take them to detect a breach, and the often inadequate staff and safeguards they have in place.
The Challenge: Deliver Better Performance and Facilitate Speedy New Store Openings This particular retailer, a mall-based national children’s apparel chain, faced a variety of challenges. Their national retail network consisted of two-thirds frame relay installations and one-third DSL. New Web-based applications, as well as growing point-of-sale (POS), credit/debit, store polling, inventory, and back-office applications were quickly outgrowing the capacity of their existing network.
As a retail security professional, you are challenged with maintaining a constant state of PCI compliance and keeping your infrastructure safe using best-of-breed security solutions that help, rather than hinder, your quest to validate your systems.
