The client is a large franchisee for a major international restaurant and bar chain.
If you own a chain of restaurants, retail outlets, or virtually any small business, accepting credit cards is essential. To ensure maximum protection from cyber-attacks, your credit card point-of-sale system needs to operate on a secure and segregated network. Also, having a reliable Wi-Fi network is crucial for tablet devices and guest services, as it directly impacts the customer experience and their likelihood of returning. However, this particular business has been struggling in these areas.
Over the past year, the client experienced twelve firewall failures, which resulted in significant financial consequences. Frequent firewall failures and slow response times from their service provider made it evident that the business was vulnerable to security risks, PCI compliance fines, and potential credit card losses. Furthermore, a failed firewall meant unreliable Wi-Fi, which negatively impacted the customer experience.
