U.S. Military Secures Transactions
To comply with the Payment Card Industry’s (PCI) security standards for wireless environments, the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) selected a mobile virtual private network (VPN) solution from Columbitech (New York City) for its worldwide retail locations. The mobile VPN client provides secure wireless access through mutual authentication and strong encryption of data, which is a requirement for PCI compliance. It also provides seamless roaming between networks and compression of data.
NEXCOM has 344 stores located on 107 Naval installations around the world and provides active-duty military, retirees, reservists and their families with quality, brand-name merchandise and services.
