PCI DSS compliant retail network provider

Lancom Systems : 14 January, 2010  (New Product)
Electronic payments remain secure with Payment Card Industry compliant network elements available from LANCOM
The IT infrastructure used by the retail industry for electronic payment (cash cards, credit cards) is subject to the strictest security requirements. Set down in the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), these requirements must be fulfilled by the systems as a whole and by their individual components.

A core requirement of the PCI DSS is for all devices to support the 'Triple A' procedure of authentication, authorisation and accounting. This procedure ensures that only uniquely identified users have access to the components, that each user can be assigned with specific rights, and that all actions are logged, and can thus be tracked.

By supporting the TACACS+ protocol, LANCOM is a single source of networking infrastructure that is fully compliant with PCI DSS requirements. TACACS+ was implemented in all LANCOM access points, routers and managed switches with version 7.7 of the LANCOM operating system, LCOS. Customers with older versions of LCOS can download LCOS 7.8 for free from the LANCOM web site.

A white paper on the subject is available for free download from the LANCOM web site.
