Recommendations for POS Protection

Companies everywhere are focused on POS security and how to keep out data breaches that can cost money and reputations. At Comodo, we believe that everyone should have certain things in place, including POS protection software, and have come up with a list of options that everyone can do to keep computers and networks safe.

Network Options

When considering the POS network, you want to:

  • Ensure that the system has a proxy or firewall installed
  • Use an appropriate Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
  • Use network segmentation, keeping the POS system on a separate and protected subnet
  • Separate the POS system from other network options, such as email
  • Don’t use the POS terminal to access the Internet

Encryption

POS protection should also include encryption options. You must know what data is resting on your terminal and offer endpoint encryption for any devices hooked up to the point-of-sale system. You should also consider encrypting PIN and credit card information before it goes into the memory. Most companies believe this happens automatically, but it doesn’t, and you need to use a vendor who provides this service. In most cases, criminals cannot sell or use encrypted data unless they have the encryption key.

Internet

It is best not to use the POS terminal or the computer that hooks up to the POS terminal for anything other than transactions. This can include internet surfing, checking emails, visiting social media sites and the like. While we understand that you must use the Internet for daily business needs, you should use a different network to do so.

Others

Our POS protection software is also a helpful solution, because it can find malware and other advanced threats that traditional antivirus solutions can’t. If you’d like to learn more, please contact us today.

It's secure

This is my second POS protection; the first one 2 years back was not secured and would not ensure confidence to me.

Good at Blocking malicious virus

I think this is the best we can have for POS protection that blocks malicious codes and hacking attempts as far I know.

Keep password secure

Always use complex, secure passwords and two-factor authentication.
