May 6, 2010 - PRLog -- NEW ORLEANS, LA , (from the NACStech Conference, booth 943) – Sinclair Oil has selected Houston-based Vendor Safe Technologies to support Sinclair’s initiative to achieve Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) compliance across its network of distributor and dealer-operated convenience stores. Vendor Safe will deliver its Self Configuring Firewall Architecture™ and Global Security Mesh™ / VPN to isolate the POS system from other technology within the store’s network, protecting it from insidious malware, hackers and other potential threats.

"Networks and network security can be complex, and c-store managers by their nature are not technical," said Trinette Huber, manager of Information Privacy and Security in Sinclair’s PCI Program. "Using Vendor Safe is like purchasing an in-house network department — they provide their expertise, capabilities, support and technical know-how to protect our credit card data from these thieves. The PCI implementation has been accomplished in less than thirty days."

Vendor Safe implemented their unique Self Configuring Firewall Architecture solution for Sinclair convenience stores so that the POS system and the back office system could be protected in separate security zones. Zoning allows for segmentation within a single network providing critical security between the POS system and the back-office system without impeding the day to day workload.

"When we began working with Sinclair, they had very specific requirements they were looking for in a security system including zoned levels of security, a fixed level of expense, little to no impact on daily business operations and minimal efforts to implement," said Bill Pickard, COO of Vendor Safe. "As a security company with more than 20 years experience designing and managing data networks, we have complex implementations down to a science. Our remote installation requires no on-site visits, and we are able to meet Sinclair’s data security goals in record time."
