Mako Networks announces the world’s first PCI DSS Level 1 certified management service to improve data security for businesses across the world. Of the 12 key requirements of PCI DSS a significant percentage relate to technical details that a merchant trying to manage the day-to-day running of a business is unlikely to understand or have the time to manage. For this, Mako enforces data security on public broadband connections and saves retailers the worry about exposure to data theft relating to both payment and non-payment activity. It also provides merchants with a single pre-configured and remotely managed security system, which continually enforces compliance and replaces traditional modems, routers and firewalls. Merchants can continue using their existing broadband service and administer real-time maintenance of compliance issues.
