Major consumer retailers, hotels, motels and resort hospitality operations have suffered significant security breaches due to lack of IT security and regulatory compliance.

Multiple inner-connecting networks processing card data, polling, settlement to ERP systems or antiquated magnetic stripe processing systems provide a playground for installing malware and hacker entry.

In the retail and hospitality industries, compliance to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) provides the framework to protect enormous amounts of data across locations, various point-of-sale (POS) systems, e-commerce websites, and catalog operations.
