Cybera’s PCI Compliance Enhances Wendy’s Security

Cybera®, a leading data security and PCI (payment card industry) compliance solution provider and ERC, a leader in the sales and installation of POS equipment for nearly 30 years, announced today that Wendy’s franchisee Calhoun Management Corporation has adopted the Cybera ONE solution for security and PCI compliance. The multi-location Wendy’s franchisee addresses PCI compliance requirements with Cybera’s managed security solution, which includes wireless IDS (intrusion detection service) for rogue access point detection.

“When ERC presented us an opportunity, we selected Cybera ONE because we needed a comprehensive, yet affordable, solution to meet PCI compliance,” says Pick Lindsey, President for Calhoun Management. “While PCI compliance was the main driver for implementing Cybera’s service, we also benefit from advanced wireless security features and Wi-Fi access for our customers.”

As the owner of multiple Wendy’s locations, Calhoun Management understood the importance of using a standardized security solution to protect customer payment card information and meet PCI compliance. Multi-location merchants are often challenged to achieve a cost-effective and standardized solution, since many providers only offer individual pieces of a security solution.

Through Cybera’s comprehensive solution, each Wendy’s location benefits from wireless security service that protects cardholder data from hacker attempts and vulnerabilities from unauthorized devices. Cybera’s rogue access point detection services help ensure compliance with PCI-DSS wireless requirements through automated wireless scanning and reporting. To address increasingly complex wireless threats, Cybera’s solution provides the same security to wireless networks as wired networks receive.

Cybera enables Wendy’s franchisees to meet PCI compliance requirements through an integrated solution including:

  • Managed firewall with integrated IDS

  • Managed wireless services for rogue wireless intrusion detection

  • Hosted SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) with remote logging to meet PCI-DSS log retention requirements

  • Hosted UTM (Unified Threat Management) through a centrally managed platform that monitors, detects and analyzes security events 24x7x365 across all locations

  • Managed guest-access HotSpot service

“PCI compliance is a major pain-point for franchisees,” says Paul Melton, Vice President of Enterprise Sales at Cybera. “Cybera ONE provides merchants with the simple and affordable solution to meet PCI compliance and protect customer and corporate data.”

Information on Cybera’s integrated security solutions is available at the RSA Conference in San Francisco (Booth #752).
