Protecting the Retail Market
Retailers Remain a
Top Target for Cyber Criminals
With the prevalence of social media and networking tools, it’s truer now than ever before: for retailers, reputation is critical. But while factors like customer service have obvious influence on your business’s standing, have you considered the impact of your network security? You should.
The consequences of security vulnerabilities can wreak devastating havoc on a company’s good name, the likes of which some will never recover from. Retail businesses in particular remain a top target for cyber criminals ― in fact, nearly one in three retailers have already suffered revenue losses due to a cyber attack.
Securing Your Network and Reputation
Luckily, with intuitive solutions for point of sale (POS), compliance, and Wi-Fi needs, WatchGuard Technologies can help secure your retail network, business, and ultimately your reputation.
Is Your POS Protected?
POS malware has continued to thrive in recent years, leaving a trail of victimized retailers in its wake. Hackers are vendor-neutral ― whether you’re an SMB or a distributed enterprise ― they have their sights on the data in your POS, not the size of your storefront.
Solving Your PCI Problems
Did you know that 80% of businesses fail their interim PCI compliance assessment? A shockingly high number, considering the penalties range from $5,000 – $10,000 monthly fines, to a terminated relationship with your acquiring bank. Though maintaining compliance can be a challenge, failing to do so yields hefty consequences.
Winning Business with Secure Wi-Fi
Customer loyalty and sales gains are just a few of the benefits that make providing guest Wi-Fi a no-brainer. In fact, a staggering 96% of consumers prefer businesses that offer free Wi-Fi. But for all the convenience that wireless networks afford your guests, failing to properly secure them provides cyber criminals with a convenient vector for attack.
Retailers have long been victim to targeted attacks at the hands of cyber criminals, playing out in both the large and small scale. While the industry was hopeful that the EMV Chip and PIN liability shift would dramatically bolster security, uneven adoption of chip technology has contributed to the unwavering zeal with which payment-based attacks have occurred.
