E-commerce gives consumers convenience, selection, and the belief that their online purchase is secure. Regulations developed by credit card companies require business owners to ensure their point of sale (POS) and other network capabilities are maintained in a secure environment.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is important for brick and mortar or e-commerce businesses. In order for your business to remain PCI-compliant, your retail IT support needs a secure remote access platform to ensure you remain compliant with regulations developed by credit card companies.
The remote access required by your third-party IT support can keep your sales running smoothly—or open a door to a bad actor intent on stealing sensitive customer data.
A growing number of retailers are suffering data breaches and loss of sensitive customer data due to outmoded software, poor authentication practices, password sharing, and remote access policies that have a lot of gaps.
For retail business owners and their IT support, PCI-compliant remote access closes the gaps and resolves problems caused by soft security policies. A secure remote platform can solve a lot of problems for retailers, including:
As a retailer or entrepreneur, your focus is on growing your business, your customer base, and making a profit. Use a secure remote platform to be sure your tech support providers can do the job you hire them to do. Keep your digital business running and your customer information safe.
