Acumera, an industry-leading managed network service provider (MNSP), today announced the launch of its new AcuLink™ Endpoint Connection Service. When activated through the company’s proprietary AcuVigil™ platform, c-store, restaurant and retail operators can now enable staff and third-party technicians to securely and remotely connect to ATG, DVR and other more sensitive endpoints, like the POS and other elements of typical cardholder data environments.
AUSTIN, TX, MARCH 24, 2020 — Built using Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) concepts, AcuLink Endpoint Connection Service not only allows endpoint devices to be completely isolated on local network segments, but also be securely remotely accessible. The service enables PCI DSS compliant remote access by authorized operations and support personnel from any location, often without special software clients. Rather than traveling to a retail site, personnel can securely connect from remote locations to resolve issues and maximize availability to keep stores up and running.
The AcuLink Endpoint app, available via Acumera’s PCI DSS compliant AcuVigil™ platform, enables:
- Simple one-click activation of remote sessions
- Pre-defined, automatic disconnection of remote sessions
- Authenticated, logged and secured ephemeral connections
- Compliance with PCI DSS remote access requirements 12.3.8 and 12.3.9
- Remote access of POS to accelerate service and reduce technician travel and expense
- Compliant remote access to legacy devices like DVRs and ATGs
Bob McDonald, Director of Technical Resources at Minnesota Petroleum Service, an Acumera channel partner, reseller and installer, said, “now more than ever, the services and remote support tools powered by Acumera provide the cost savings our customers want, the security they need, and the knowledge that we are truly partnering with them. We have been asking for this type of remote service tool from the industry for a long time, and only Acumera has stepped up and delivered. I am excited to see AcuLink deployed and utilized by our in-house help desk and the benefits it offers to our customers.”
