Third-party access is a retailer’s biggest cybersecurity vulnerability, with reputational damage and loss of customers on the line.


of shoppers say they would abandon a retailer that’s been hacked.

Retail businesses must protect and secure their critical assets, like sensitive cardholder data and customer information. Not only do regulations like PCI DSS, CCPA, and GDPR require that data and customer information be protected, but cyber criminals are specifically targeting retailers for this valuable data. IT and security teams are faced with the challenges and risks of high employee turnover and third-party access across the ecosystem, from IoT devices to PoS terminals to HVAC units. With out-of-date or ill-equipped tools, organizations can struggle to effectively secure these vulnerabilities. And the stakes are too high to get this wrong: should a retailer fail to secure these, revenue, customer loyalty and brand reputation are all on the line.
