Uptime is King

Point of Sales System Attacks Are on The Rise

With new consumer EMV-chip protection requirements implemented at the end of 2015 in place, much of the liability for credit card fraud has moved from banks and card issuers directly to retail merchants.

While good for the banks and great for consumers, retail organizations are increasingly under the gun as targeted attacks against point of sale (PoS) systems are on the rise.

Malware targeting PoS systems is one of the largest sources of stolen credit card information, but the problem isn’t just one of protecting PoS systems – it also includes many of the hosts that backend the normal retail ecosystem.

Then there’s the problem of uptime.

If a PoS system is compromised, traditional security requirements demand that it be taken offline. At a large retail location, this one device can generate up to $100,000 a day in cash flow. Its loss will impact customers while the retailer scrambles to remediate the threat, a process that can often take up to two days.

To survive in today’s cutthroat retail environment, businesses must have a way to ensure their operations can continue uninterrupted, while also keeping payment card data private and safe.

They need enSilo.

enSilo Keeps PoS Systems Online

enSilo’s endpoint security platform ensures that PoS systems can remain in operation, even if they’re compromised by advanced malware.

enSilo accurately blocks any malicious outbound communications or file tampering from the PoS system. This laser-like precision gives retailers the breathing room they need to maintain their operations while also remediating threats and allowing business to continue as usual.

On a PoS system only certain applications should be able to communicate off the endpoint and not to the network or internet at large. enSilo lets those applications run as needed but they cannot move data or connect so that your PoS is safe from thieves.
