Secure PCI compliant payment for retailers

Mako Networks : 05 November, 2013  (Company News)
Sprint has teamed up with Mako Networks to offer complient wireless network services for secure payments within the retail industry
Secure PCI compliant payment for retailers

Mako Networks and Sprint have announced a teaming agreement to add the Mako System to Sprint’s portfolio of solutions for retailers and distributed enterprises. Customers can now purchase Mako’s solution integrated with Sprint’s wireless service to connect, protect, control and secure their data and payment transactions.

The Mako System creates simple, secure Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant networks for distributed enterprises (multisite businesses), such as retail chains or franchises. With an easy-to-use cloud-based Central Management System (CMS), Mako allows administrators to manage the network connections at thousands of sites through a single Web interface, without jeopardizing their networks’ PCI-compliant status. The solution also includes built-in Wi-Fi and Mako Guardian content filtering and reporting, in addition to an array of other value-added features, including extensive 24x7 monitoring and alerts to help maintain network security.

Mako also offers a secondary Internet connection or ‘failover’ option, which switches a business’s Internet connection to Sprint’s fast and reliable wireless network if the fixed-line connection is disrupted. This backup option allows businesses to maintain a non-stop retail environment. Under the agreement with Sprint, customers will enjoy the security and easy management of the Mako System, backed up by a reliable and affordable Sprint mobile data connection. The Mako System can also be configured to use the Sprint network as a primary means of Internet access.

In turn, Sprint’s US business customer base offers a significant growth opportunity for Mako with a leading wireless and wireline services provider.

“Sprint is the perfect company for Mako to align with in bringing our solution to the distributed enterprise market here in the United States,” said Simon Gamble, Mako Networks president for North American operations. “With Sprint’s sizeable footprint in machine-to-machine solutions and world-class network, we believe that businesses will be delighted with the solution our services provide.”

Ben Vos, vice president of Emerging Solutions at Sprint, added, “Mako’s technology is leading the way in secure, PCI-compliant networking for the distributed enterprise. Our business customers will appreciate the ease of use and powerful connectivity options the Mako System provides. Sprint’s retail M2M strategy is to integrate new technology that provides the customer an omni-channel experience while delivering a valuable set of data analytics for better decision-making to the retailer.”
