PCI Compliance Enhanced: ATC Omega Adds Wireless Intrusion Detection & Prevention


St. Louis-based Data Security and PCI Compliance firm Partners with AirTight Networks, the Leading WIPS Solution Provider 

Ellisville, MO - February 28, 2011 - With the PCI Security Standards Council placing more emphasis on wireless intrusion detection and prevention, the industry-leading solution, Omega by American Technology Corporation, is ahead of the pack. The company has partnered with AirTightŪ Networks, a global leader in wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) products and services, to provide its customers with enhanced network security.

"Wireless intrusion is a real threat to a retail chain and it needs to be monitored continuously. With integration of the AirTight Cloud ServicesTM and Omega, customers can monitor all alerts from a single console. The biggest challenge for a retailer is to manage a widely distributed infrastructure for PCI compliance," said Shekar Swamy, ATC's president. "There is simply no other solution like this available on the marketplace today which allows administrators to monitor and manage network security policy, including wireless, through a single pane of glass and minimize the need to learn multiple technologies. That's why we're so excited to offer our Omega clients wireless intrusion detection/prevention (WIPS) service through this strategic alliance."

"AirTight Network's Cloud based WIDS/WIPS allows us to complete our spectrum of services to manage the entire PCI compliance process," Swamy continued. "All other capabilities of Omega, such as automated file integrity monitoring, real-time monitoring, anti-virus, logging, 2-FA based remote control, and reporting make it possible for large and small retailers to achieve total compliance. The hosted OmegaSecureTM solution option and the installed OmegaManagerTM system now both deliver wireless intrusion detection/prevention as an option."

"ATC's approach to technology for its customers is a perfect match for AirTight - that is to provide the enterprise with solutions that deploy easily and deliver quickly on their promises," said Jack Torgow, Vice President of Sales for AirTight. "Both AirTight and ATC provide solutions that are clearly designed to address the budget and personnel constraints of the retail industry and automate of as many tasks as possible, making it simple to meet and maintain PCI compliance."
