Maintaining security whether the network is up or down
Often retail networks have been pieced together over time, with new stores implementing newer technology making a complex system to manage. Additionally, it’s usually cost-prohibitive to have skilled IT staff on-site at store or branch locations to maintains, troubleshoot and repair network devices and systems.
To compound these challenges, auditing requirements, such as the PCI Data Security Standard require retailers to be prepared for an audit and to demonstrate compliance with regulatory standards for protecting both their customers’ data and internal IT infrastructure.
Uplogix simplifies and automates management of networks with hybrid gear and provides secure out-of-band access for troubleshooting from the NOC, further reducing the need for expensive service calls and extended downtime. In many retail environments, a backup network connection is over satellite. Using the integrated rules engine and local monitoring of network infrastructure, Uplogix can not only monitor status of the backup network and alert when there are issues, but also broker the changeover if and when needed.
