Cybera Achieves 20,000 Retail Site Milestone for Breakthrough ADN Solution

Cybera Inc., an industry leader in network and application security services, announced today the reaching of 20,000 deployments of its payment ADN solution. This milestone establishes Cybera as a dominant force in virtual overlay networks for the retail market. Cybera serves many of the leading retail industry brands, such as Shell, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Samsonite, ExxonMobil and Books-A-Million with this innovative ADN technology.

An Application Defined Network (ADN) is an enterprise data network using virtual network and security components to provide a dedicated logical network for each application, with customized security and network policies to meet the requirements of that specific application. Typical site-to-site networks with multiple applications introduce considerable security threats. Technologies such as guest Wi-Fi, mobile payment and cloud services open these private networks to security breaches, creating significant complexity in security policies and network administration.

Cybera ONE’s ADN solution provides customizable and specific security features that address precise application needs in several critical retail arenas, including Point-of-Sale (POS), Loyalty Programs and Payment Processing.

POS systems are vital to the delivery of applications within the commercial enterprise environment. Cybera ONE’s POS ADN securely enables any POS vendor to remotely support and repair a system over high speed broadband. Enabling a High Speed Remote Helpdesk (HSRH) ADN provides faster response at a lower cost by eliminating the slow business line used for remote access. Cybera ONE reduces the complexities and headaches associated with maintaining a high performance POS system. Additionally, while critical to driving repeat business, transaction-based loyalty programs [utilizing POS data] can jeopardize the integrity of payment data security. Cybera ONE’s Loyalty ADN completely segregates loyalty traffic from payment traffic, ensuring complete customer-data security.

Payment processing is the nucleus of any commercial business, and maintaining the payment network is instrumental in long-term success. However, achieving PCI-DSS compliance is complex and time consuming, yet is critical in avoiding costly penalties and litigation related to security breaches. Cybera ONE’s Payment Processing ADN is a PCI-DSS compliant environment, providing a dedicated logical network that fully segments the cardholder data environment (CDE) from all other applications and devices.

Cliff Duffey, President and CEO explains, “Our ADN platforms offer the core attributes of security, reliability, segmentation and consolidation. There is simply nothing else available on the market today for small to large, multi-site enterprise customers providing such a robust application-security system [and delivering the significant capital cost savings that come with this model]”.

About Cybera Inc: Cybera Inc. simplifies complex communication challenges in security, network, and applications for small to large multi-site enterprise customers. The industry-leading Application Defined Network (ADN) service platform Cybera ONE secures critical applications across any network, and makes these applications highly available. The Cybera ONE solution is utilized by many of the world's leading brands in a variety of industry sectors, including retail, restaurant/hospitality, health care, financial services, and manufacturing.
