Secure Retail POS Systems with Virtual Private Network (VPN)

A virtual private network is a technology that creates an encrypted connection over a less secure network. The benefit of using a VPN is that it ensures the appropriate level of security to the connected systems when the underlying network infrastructure alone cannot provide it.

VPN uses a public telecommunication infrastructure like the Internet to provide remote users secure access to their organization's network. A VPN client on the remote user's computer or mobile device connects to a VPN gateway on the organization's network, which typically requires the device to authenticate its identity, then creates a network link back to the device that allows it to reach internal network resources (e.g., MS SQL database on the central server) as though it was on that network locally. 

Without any form of VPN, your network of computers and pos terminals including database/s are vulnerable to web threats - there are millions of web attacks every day and it is critical to start building your IT defences before your retail organization becomes the next cyber victim!

IRMCS leverages VPN technology to help protects our clients' network of server, computers and POS terminals. This also serves to protect their customers' personal information at the same time adhering to the Personal Data Protection Act 2012.
