Security solutions for retailers

With the security threat landscape evolving rapidly and attacks becoming ever more pernicious, retailers are increasingly finding themselves in the crosshairs of the cyber criminals.

Online shopping, transactional processing, customer data, sprawling IT estates and the trend for wireless networking are creating a perfect storm: the target that is at once highly valuable and highly vulnerable.

There is no single silver bullet to keeping payments, personal information and applications secure and compliant either on centrally hosted systems or across large and diverse physical retail networks. But with data breaches consistently ranking as consumers' biggest fear, seasonal shopping cycles prompting upwards of one million cyber attacks daily, and victims suffering severe financial and reputational damage, then retailers must be as ruthless, meticulous and clever as the new breed of entrepreneurial criminals in their response to what is fast becoming an existential business threat.

Redcentric advocates a layered security model, meshing together process, policy, people and technology to form the most robust defence possible.
