Over 200 Retail Credit Card Data Environments Analyzed for Wireless Vulnerabilities
Mountain View, CA. - November 22, 2010 - AirTight® Networks announced today it is presenting its study on wireless data security in retail environments covered by the PCI DSS at the PCI Europe conference. The Conference takes place on November 25th at The Hotel Okura, Amsterdam, Netherlands. The presentation titled, "PCI still misses the mark on wireless data security: a study of over 200 retail credit card data environments," will be given by AirTight experts, Dr. Kaustubh Phanse, Principle Wireless Architect at AirTight, and Kiran Deshpande, President of Airtight International. It covers:
"Clearly, the consumerization of Wi-Fi devices and the vulnerability of client devices continues to be the top wireless threat, yet something that enterprises often overlook in their security assessment," said Deshpande. "Indeed, in AirTight’s sample only 24% enterprises were completely clean in this assessment. With the tidal wave of multimodal Wi-Fi devices flooding the enterprise, any device could open a back door to your secure data. If you decide to do the bare minimum to get a PCI wireless compliance checkmark, without truly enforcing your wireless security policies - you are at risk from data loss or worse, a catastrophic breach."
AirTight, along with its European partner, VADition, is also presenting live demonstrations throughout the day of its unique, cloud-based PCI wireless scanning solution, which provides low cost, low effort, automated PCI wireless scanning allowing retailers to go beyond the PCI checkmark to true security. VADition is a Value Adding Distributor introducing a new wave of technologies to its partners in the UK and the EU.
