Security for the Retail Industry
Source: WatchGuard Technologies
Companies accepting credit or debit cards in exchange for goods or services must already be compliant with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) requirements. Any merchant that does not comply with PCI DSS is at risk of extensive fines from Visa and other card brand companies. Retailers who want to service customers quickly during peak times without purchasing more POS stations have an excellent option with WatchGuard. One solution is to reuse existing handheld mobile computers to perform POS applications - such as adding SKUs, viewing inventory, and checking out customers faster - via the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN).
