ControlScan Eliminates Firewall Management Burden, Security Gaps for Small Businesses with Managed Network Firewall

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 15, 2012

For many merchants, attempts at in-house firewall configuration and management often lead to simple-to-make mistakes that result in misconfigured security systems, unnecessary data exposure and risk of non-compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS).

ControlScan, the leading provider of PCI compliance and security solutions designed for small merchants and the ISOs and acquirers that serve them has added ProTect Network Firewall to its ProTect Managed Security Services to manage the installation, administration and monitoring of network firewalls specifically for Level 4 merchant businesses.

Network firewall errors or gaps for any merchant large or small can result in business-damaging lapses in security, said Joan Herbig, CEO of ControlScan. Despite this fact, we found that no managed network firewalls were tailored to the resource and budget limitations, unique operating demands and PCI compliance requirements of small businesses. Our ProTect Network Firewall fills that gap by pairing Mako Networks cloud-managed network security technology with ControlScans Level 4 concentration and service.

By providing affordable and continuous network monitoring and 24/7 protection against outside threats, ProTect Network Firewall improves the overall security posture of a small business, such as Pearl Specialty Market & Spirits in Portland, Ore., IT director, Murad Pirani, found ProTect Network Firewall attractive for his business, because it locked down his card data environment per pre-defined PCI DSS rules, ensured all updates and upgrades were made in a timely manner and in accordance with changes to the PCI standard and increased Internet productivity by reporting on how the network is being used and by whom.
