Radiant Systems Inc. has launched Radiant Security Services, a new set of products and services designed to help restaurant and retail operators build a layered defense against criminal tactics targeted at the theft of consumer data.
The Radiant Security Services suite consists of a managed commercial-grade hardware firewall service, a secure two-factor remote access tool, and an ongoing monitoring and network defense service. Also included is a breach assistance program that protects operators from expenses that result from a suspected or actual data breach.
Radiant Security Services is available to all retail and restaurant operators, regardless of whether they use Radiant’s POS technology in their business.
In 2010, Radiant Systems worked with other businesses to improve security throughout the entire payment process, and also participated in data security organizations such as PCI, SSC and SPVA, according to John Heyman, CEO at Radiant Systems.
“These activities provided access to education for our resellers and customers on security challenges,” he said. “We remain strongly committed to data security and continue to invest in our goal to provide our customers with innovative and secure solutions that allow them to focus on what is truly important – engaging consumers and delivering excellent service.”
Last year, Radiant launched Payment Guard MSR, an encrypted magnetic stripe reader that comes standard in all Radiant POS terminals, as well as Token Replacement, a payment security feature within a restaurant’s POS software that prevents cardholder data from being stored on the POS. Radiant Security Services complement these existing offerings to give operators additional protection.
