Firewall/VPN Plays Leading Role in DVD Kiosks
Source: WatchGuard Technologies
An innovator in the DVD rental business, e-Play, LLC operates in an especially challenging and demanding security environment. The challenges of securing and connecting the e-Play kiosks are multiple and diverse - PCI compliance; connection over multiple types of wireless networks, including 3G cellular uplinks; extremes of temperature encountered in exterior locations; enterprise-class reliability to keep revenue streams flowing; centralized management of remote kiosks spread across hundreds or thousands of miles; and the need for a security solution with low per-unit cost, efficient provisioning, and the ability to fit within a tight form factor. A WatchGuard Firebox Edge X10e protects each kiosk, and maintains a secure VPN tunnel to the e-Play data center. A WatchGuard 3G Extends unit hardwired to the Edge device handles the connection with the local 3G cellular carrier.
