Solution comes just in time for the new Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)
Leading provider to the wholesale channel, Daisy Wholesale has been chosen by Phoenix Managed Networks to provide a range of services for its Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) Level One certified cloud-based network security and management solution.
PhoeniXSentry offers security for the processes and data carried through transactional networks, to which Daisy Wholesale will be providing telephone line, internet connectivity, a managed installation service and the option of 3G failover.
As well as supporting PCI compliance, PhoeniXSentry is an independently certified ICSA Labs security appliance and boasts features such as included WiFi, 3G failover, usage reporting, content filtering, real-time proactive status alerts and Virtual Private Network (VPN) capabilities.
As part of the partnership, PhoeniXSentry will be made available to Daisy Wholesale’s reseller partners. Mark Hickey, Director at Daisy Wholesale comments: “There is already a high level of interest amongst the reseller community for this service.
“For the SME market, the PhoeniXSentry solution provides those businesses that may not have much in-house capability with the reassurance that they are being diligent with their network security and complying with their PCI regulations, allowing them to focus on the growth of their business.”
The launch of PhoeniXSentry comes at a pivotal time for the transactional networking market, as new PCI regulations come into fruition, and as banks and card issuers start to crack down on non-compliant businesses.
“This solution is one of a kind,” added Hickey. “There are no other services that can offer voice, data and mobile connectivity, all supported by around-the-clock management. Given the sensitive nature of the data that transactional networks hold and the hefty fines that security breaches ensue, it is more important than ever to safe harbour your business.”
Recent updates to PCI DSS mean that both merchants and service providers can now be held liable for security breaches. That is why it is so important for resellers and their customers to make sure networks handling card data are secure, and PhoeniXSentry is the ideal solution for this.
“The scale of Daisy Wholesale’s portfolio means that we have the ability to cater to almost any customer requirement,” said Alan Stephenson-Brown, Senior Vice President of International Sales and Business Development at Phoenix Managed Networks. “Daisy’s partnerships with all of the major UK networks is an important resource, saving us valuable time which would otherwise have been spent managing the relationships with multiple suppliers.”
