EOS Payment Solutions Employs Secure Firewall


EOS Payment Solutions selected Secure Computing Corporation’s Secure Firewall (formerly known as Sidewinder) for comprehensive security and manageability while complying with the new Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).


Since the company’s formation, EOS Payment Solutions employed Secure Computing’s Secure Firewall, which fulfills all firewall-related PCI DSS requirements.


“A solid argument for Secure Firewall was the fact that the system had never been hacked. The same cannot be said for any other firewall product on the market. Furthermore, Secure Firewall made it possible to address PCI requirements promptly and easily – all we had to change were the password guidelines,” said Michael Hülsiggensen, general manager at EOS Payment Solutions. “Our business model in itself requires the highest standards in IT security, which clearly indicated that the comprehensive security appliance from Secure Computing was the right choice.”
