VAIL, CO and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- Resort Data Processing (RDP), a veteran provider of property management software, has chosen payments industry pioneer Shift4 Corporation as the exclusive payment gateway provider for its upcoming releases of RDPWin Version 4, IRM.Net, and Mobile IRM for smartphones and tablets.
"When Elavon announced the end-of-life for Protobase, RDP was forced to find a new solution to help our customers navigate the new, increasingly complex PCI requirements, and to prepare for the upcoming migration to EMV cards," said RDP President Barry Biegler. "We evaluated a wide variety of possible solutions and concluded that Shift4's offering is leaps and bounds ahead of other products on the market."
Shift4's DOLLARS ON THE NET® is a feature-packed payment gateway that connects merchants to the banks and processors of their choice. Shift4's TrueTokenization® and point-to-point encryption (P2PE) technologies combine to drastically reduce the scope of annual PCI assessments, saving hoteliers both time and money. These technologies also provide the best available defense against data thieves.
"Too many payment security technologies are focused on perimeter security -- building bigger fences and deeper moats around their data," said Shift4 CEO Dave Oder. "Our solution is different. Instead of defending the data, we remove it from the hotel environment. After all, They can't steal what you don't have.®"
RDP has long been committed to helping its customers maintain control of their environment and reduce their costs, and Shift4's solution does both. With a full suite of pre- and post-settlement auditing tools, Shift4 helps hoteliers qualify for the best possible processing rates and avoid unnecessary fees, fines, and downgrades. DOLLARS ON THE NET also allows hoteliers to centrally audit and batch transactions across every part of their enterprise in one convenient location. From the front desk to retail outlets, restaurants, and even the mobile POS devices out by the pool, Shift4's technologies have resort properties covered.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
