Jackson, MS, United States, 2013/04/09 - Bomgar, a leading provider of secure remote support solutions, announced that Revention is using the Bomgar remote support solution to provide secure technology support to approximately 20,000 point-of-sale (POS) systems - Revention.com / Bomgar.com.
• Bomgar enables Revention to provide secure remote support to 20,000 point-of-sale systems and stay in compliance with PCI-DSS and PA-DSS regulations.
• Revention benefits from Bomgar’s integration with Salesforce.com, which provides a comprehensive view of all support activities.
Revention is the leading developer of complete, customizable restaurant management solutions designed to streamline the way restaurants do business. The company’s offerings include POS solutions, as well as its HungerRush integrated online ordering and Revention Enterprise systems.
Revention’s search for a new remote support solution began with the previous solution’s inability to meet the company’s growing needs and comply with rigid security standards. “We were using pcAnywhere, and we constantly had to maintain all the required updates and modify configuration settings required for PCI compliance. We needed a solution that could keep up with security requirements,” said Jeff Doyle, CEO and President of Revention. “There were several points of failure in that tool, as well as required inbound access via a specific port that could allow for undesired entry to our systems. With a big focus on security, we needed something more secure than what we were using.”
As a vendor in the restaurant and retail industries, Revention has to stay in compliance with the regulations of both the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS). Noting again that security is a major focus for their business, Doyle said that completely complying with these industry standards is a must. “Given the recent increase in network breaches, we wanted to strengthen our security measures even further. When looking at the Bomgar solution, its security features were like icing on the cake. It sealed the deal for us in terms of being as secure as possible, and no additional steps or patches were going to be required to maintain that security. The Bomgar solution fulfilled all of our current requirements, and as far as I’m concerned, any future requirements as well.”
Revention’s POS systems are used by many restaurants, bars and pizza delivery organizations. In addition to support, the Revention team uses Bomgar to provide remote training and guidance once their solution has been purchased. Most remote sessions are primarily used to guide new users through the software as opposed to fixing a problem, and session recordings are utilized to make quick references for common questions.
Finding a solution that could grow with the company was also important for the Revention support team. “Bomgar’s appliance-based solution was the only option that gave us the features and security we needed, and had the ability to scale with us over time.”
Another main factor that led the Revention team to choose Bomgar was the solution’s pre-built integration with Salesforce.com. Doyle explained that the company is heavily invested in Salesforce.com, and that all support sessions are started through Salesforce. The integration enables his team to launch Bomgar remote support sessions directly from Salesforce and automatically feeds all remote session data back into the case record. “We were very impressed with the service we received from the Bomgar support team, notably their efforts in assisting with customizations to our integration with Salesforce.”
Nathan McNeill, chief strategy officer at Bomgar, echoed the importance of using a secure remote support solution. “Year after year, industry experts name remote support and remote access tools as the top attack pathway used by hackers. Many organizations either don’t know what tools they are using or don’t know the security specifics of what they use, unintentionally putting their organization at risk. Whether you’re supporting POS systems, desktops and laptops, or mobile devices, it’s imperative that you access them in a highly secure and completely auditable manner.”
