Retail network security - beyond Point of Sale systems
Our retail customers choose Netop Remote Control because of our high degree of configurability and advanced security options. In working with retailers in deploying a remote support solution that gives them the access they need to their in-store technology - including POS systems - without compromising PCI compliance, our experts often touch upon broader questions regarding network security.
Our newest white paper, Stronger Retail Network Security in 2017, presents an approach to improving network security that advocates extending the same standards of security that are used to define point-of-sale system security to the broader retail network. By deploying a multi-layer defense across all network segments, retailers can take an important step in ensuring that malware does not create a beachhead within their larger environment. The steps that are outlined - mandating P2PE (point-to-point encryption) for all connections, monitoring network integrity, improving your security hygiene and physically protecting systems - can be extended to all network users and use cases. In addition, zero-contact POS and more advanced network segmentation can isolate your point-of-sale systems from other attack vectors.
