MAPCO convenience stores add Cybera One security services with Wireless IDS to meet PCI compliance.
MAPCO Express Inc. has partnered with Cybera, a data security and PCI compliance solution provider, to implement a comprehensive security solution at its 405 locations.
MAPCO addresses PCI compliance requirements with the Cybera ONE solution, which includes wireless IDS (intrusion detection service) for rogue access point detection.
“Cybera’s solution was among several we evaluated for our store connectivity and security needs,” stated Robin Perry, manager of technical infrastructure and security for MAPCO Express. “We selected Cybera ONE because we needed an integrated solution that not only provided security and connectivity, but also solved the challenges of PCI compliance. A big benefit for us was also getting the wireless IDS capabilities in the same solution.”
Multi-location merchants must typically piece together security and compliance solutions from multiple vendors, making it difficult to achieve a cost-effective and standardized solution across all stores. In addition, the ever-changing PCI-DSS requirements involve more time and expertise than most in-house IT departments can provide.
Cybera ONE simplifies security and PCI compliance challenges by bundling all the components needed for comprehensive store security into a single, managed solution that includes wireless security services. By providing all necessary hardware and software as a service, Cybera ONE eliminates the costs of integration and management.
“Cybera is one of the few providers able to deliver affordable wireless security in an integrated solution,” said Perry. “The Cybera ONE wireless security solution included the key features we required such as pre-defined PCI-DSS wireless reports, wireless scans and full visibility over the wireless airspace.”
Cybera’s managed wireless security solution integrates rogue wireless detection services and reporting, enabling merchants like MAPCO to protect their cardholder data from hacker attempts and vulnerabilities from unauthorized devices. Specifically designed to help merchants meet the requirements for PCI-DSS compliance, Cybera’s wireless services provide the same standard of security for wireless networks that wired networks receive. Available through the integrated Cybera ONE solution or as a stand-alone service, Cybera’s rogue access point detection services reduce the cost of deployment by eliminating expensive equipment, network storage and reporting software.
“MAPCO, like hundreds of other mid-to-large sized merchants, trusts Cybera’s security expertise to help them with security and PCI compliance,” said David LaFontaine, vice president, customer resource group at Cybera. “Cybera ONE provides MAPCO with the most cost-effective, comprehensive solution to meeting the PCI-DSS security requirements relating to payment and network security.”
