Allows retailers to Sustain PCI compliance while maintaining flexibility to remotely manage and update self-service systems.
Solidcore® Systems, Inc., the leader in retail system security, change audit and configuration control, and Esprida Corporation, a leader in remote management software for self-service systems, today announced a partnership to help retailers easily secure and remotely manage kiosk systems while simplifying the effort required to meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard compliance. The joint offering allows retailers to implement kiosk best practices, which includes protecting systems, maintaining optimum levels of payment card security, and sustaining centralized control over devices in the field.
Solidcore POS Check and Control™ provides a single-solution on the endpoint that easily and cost-effectively addresses all of the PCI and security requirements of a kiosk system. Esprida LiveControl™ automates administrative tasks to give businesses complete visibility and control over a kiosk network. Together, the jointly deployed solution can enforce that only authorized changes deployed through Esprida LiveControl are allowed to alter the kiosk, including registry entries or data files. Solidcore also protects the kiosk from malware, zero-day vulnerabilities and any unauthorized local changes that might include reading or copying protected files off of the system.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Solidcore to deliver a more comprehensive offering that addresses key concerns for anyone deploying intelligent devices, such as kiosks,” said Anila Jobanputra, president of Esprida Corporation. “By combining our technology offerings we make it easier for kiosk deployers to meet and exceed security protocols and service expectations.”
“Kiosks offer an exciting opportunity for retailers, but the remote locations of these systems often present management, security and compliance challenges that cannot be overlooked,” said Anne Bonaparte, president and CEO of Solidcore. “Working together with Esprida will help simplify the most challenging aspects of kiosk deployments so retailers can focus on growing their businesses and servicing their customers.”
