BOSTON -- Columbitech Inc., a leading mobile VPN security software provider, today announced an end-to-end security solution for mobile clients and wireless infrastructure for the retail market. This offering will give retailers PCI compliance by securing all wireless devices and providing secure wireless access to the back-end systems.
The offering includes Columbitechs Mobile VPN for retail running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell. It ensures end-to-end privacy, integrity and client authentication, when communicating over wireless networks from any type of wireless device used in retail.
The protection of customer data and credit card information is a large concern for the retail industry, said Justin Steinman, Director of Marketing for Linux and Open Platform Solutions at Novell. Columbitech's offering, taking advantage of the strengths of SUSE Linux Enterprise, provides PCI compliance to customers who choose to run open source and commercial software based on open standards.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server easily plugs into existing infrastructure and comes with an integrated and pre-configured stateful firewall. A server can be pre-configured with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and MobileVPN server to ensure faster set-up at considerably lower implementation costs for the customer. MobileVPN provides strong 256- AES cryptography and two-factor authentication for the highest level of security.
We are delighted to work with an industry leader like Novell, said Tobias Englund, VP of Sales at Columbitech. With this pre-configured solution, PCI compliance is only a click away and customers will be able to reach PCI compliance faster and at a lower cost.
