Nuspire Networks is releasing a bundled Payment Card Industry (PCI) security solution available through a new partner channel for small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs), to ensure compliance with industry standards and to protect e-commerce transactions.
The credit card industry defines specific Data Security Standards (DSS) which businesses must adhere to in order to process payments, an essential requirement for retail businesses. Through its partner channel, Nuspire provides a suite of managed security services that help businesses achieve compliance with DSS as well as provide gateway security and Rogue Wireless Detection Services (WDS).
SMBs have typically minimized the necessity of complying with DSS, but now the SMBs are the preferred target for hackers due to their relative vulnerability.
The sophistication of the often changing DSS technology is a challenge for SMBs to meet, and the risks in not complying with DSS are significant. In addition to potentially crippling fines, damage to brand image and the erosion of customer loyalty, companies may be denied a transaction channel that could mean the difference between success and failure.
“The PCI security bundle from Nuspire Networks offers small- and mid-sized businesses a simple yet sophisticated solution to the serious security challenges they face,” said Nuspire partner Ervin Frenzel, of Frenzel Computer Services. “This solution enables businesses to focus on their company’s mission and rest assured that their security needs are met by a superior toolset and vigilant professionals monitoring their networks for malicious activity.”
“Nuspire Partners are offering bundled, turnkey, and cost leveraged security solution for SMBs that rivals what the large enterprises employ,” added Tony Petcou, Nuspire’s partner program manager. “Our technology allows partners to provide customers an effective, professionally managed solution without the costly investment in people and infrastructure necessary to do it themselves.”
