Precidia Technologies Inc., a global leader in the design and
manufacture of Internet Protocol (IP) payment and networking devices,
announced today the release of NetVuÃÂ¢ÃÂ¢ version 2.3. This new release of
the popular management server is the result of consultations with the
convenience store industry’s major players, incorporating features such
as PCI compliance automation and remote application download. Designed
to work alongside the POSLynx220 and other products such as the
iPocket232, NetVu delivers the widest range of deployment, management
and security features in the payments industry today.
Used by Precidia’s customers to manage thousands of endpoints throughout
North America, today’s NetVu delivers several key new features. First,
NetVu now manages the merchant’s PCI compliance requirements. In much
the same way an anti-virus package protects a PC, NetVu automatically
updates the POSLynx220 as new threats are recognized and standards
evolve. In addition, NetVu’s design reflects PCI standards, compelling
compliance with strict password rules and audit logs of operator
activity. These features effectively deliver security insurance to
merchants, ensuring ongoing PCI compliance today and into the future.
Another key feature in this newly released version of NetVu is the
ability to remotely download configurations to a field device. Remote
configuration and application download is critical for major oil and
convenience store chains, providing a simple, cost effective means of
standardizing operators on the same applications and versions. This
capability contributes to NetVu’s reputation for dramatically cutting
support costs. With NetVu monitoring and actively managing the end
device, help desks can remotely detect the root of problems, for fast
resolution. To make 24/7 support even easier, existing help desk
applications can be interfaced to NetVu through standard web services.
Precidia’s customers rely on NetVu to provide them with unparalleled
access to their field devices: “We’ve gained management tools with NetVu
that we could not get anywhere else: active management and alerts,
remote configuration and proven security”, said Rollin Tillie, of Jordan
Oil, which operates more than 50 Hot Spots stores in the southeastern
U.S. “Not only have our transaction times been reduced by more than 50%,
but we now have even more tools at our disposal to manage the
Echoing this sentiment is Cybera, a leading provider of high speed
private networking solutions to merchants: “We’ve come to rely on NetVu
to tell us what is going on in the field”, said Cliff Duffey, CEO of
Cybera. “NetVu streamlines routine maintenance functions, and delivers
alerts that allow us to detect problems even before the merchant does.
Merchants appreciate this enhanced service capability”, said Mr. Duffey.
Precidia president Deepak Wanner points to NetVu’s evolution as an
example of the company’s commitment to customer-driven products. “We
deal with companies of every size on a daily basis, helping to
understand not only their IP connectivity needs, but the importance of
cost-effective deployment and support”, said Mr. Wanner. “NetVu is a
reflection of this, with features designed to transform activities that
typically required onsite technicians, into activities carried out at
the click of a mouse from across the country. We’re pleased to set the
industry standard for monitoring, management and security”.
