Latest Uniguest platform delivers on cybersecurity

Uniguest continues to redefine secure technology for public-facing kiosks. 

NASHVILLE, Tennessee, August 30, 2017 — Leading technology services provider, Uniguest, has completed the compliance review for its latest platform, Secured Advantage 10, and is fully Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliant. Secured Advantage 10 joins other platforms in the Uniguest arsenal that are PCI compliant. By adding the PCI DSS compliance aspect to its major platform, Uniguest is ensuring that the thousands of transactions it processes each month remain secure.

“PCI compliance is the gold standard in retail environments for cybersecurity. Given the attacks of recent years on retailers, this positions our clients and their customers for extreme privacy and security,” stated Matt Goche, Uniguest COO and previous business leader in the cybersecurity industry.

Prior to joining Uniguest, Goche served as the VP of global security services at Sungard Availability Services, where he built a cybersecurity business supporting enterprise clients. His experience also includes service as an Officer in the Unites States Air Force and working as a cyber technology consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton, leading projects for the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice.

J.J. Thompson, CEO of Rook Security, said “With the increase in successful intrusions into corporate and personal networks, cybersecurity is a top objective of executives and boards all over the globe. In working with Uniguest, we saw a partner that believes security needs to be baked into all products for inherent security and privacy for users and customers.”

The cybersecurity space has changed dramatically in recent years with more attackers, more attack vectors, and more ways to gain payoff on results. In 2016 alone, there were more than 4,100 confirmed breaches, leaving 4.2 billion data records exposed. Today, there are more hacking methods using a variety of available tools that require a lower skill set for hackers to leverage in their attacks.

More than 80 percent of companies have been hacked, and according to Symantec’s 2017 Internet Security Threat Report, there are 100 new malware families, which is more than triple the amount seen previously. Once private data is stolen, it can be monetized through a worldwide network of black markets. While credit card numbers can be changed, social security numbers cannot, and identity theft can often lead to severe long-term issues for those affected.

“Handling customer information is a responsibility for all businesses,” said Goche. “As attacks get more sophisticated, businesses should only partner with vendors that appreciate the gravity of the current cyber landscape.”
