Daisy Wholesale has brought a network security solution to the channel called DaisySentry. The solution is certified against the stringent regulations of PCI compliance – a compulsory requirement for all businesses that take card payments.

The launch of the solution is apt as another data breach hits the headlines in the mainstream media this week. Vodafone has reportedly been hacked and 2000 customer details have been compromised.

Nick Harvey, Business Development Manager at Daisy Wholesale comments: “Cybercrime is on the rise and it is not just large corporate businesses that fall victim to data breaches. The 2015 UK Government Data Breach Report claimed that 74% of small businesses had reported that they had suffered a security breach and these can be devastating for a business. Not only can they ruin the trust between a business and its customers, but the cost to the business can range upwards of £75k on average in the SMB space1.”

He continues: “In our experience, there are a lot of businesses that aren’t even doing the basics when it comes to securing their data networks. Particularly in the SMB space, they struggle to find adequate security solutions without the in-house IT expertise.”
DaisySentry simplifies the process of securing and managing a business’ local area network (LAN) through an automated and fully-managed service, essentially taking the burden off the end customer.

Harvey concludes: “Built with the SMB market in mind, it provides enterprise-class network security at a low monthly cost – there are no large upfront sums involved. Customers can be safe in the knowledge that DaisySentry is providing network security and addressing the technical requirements of PCI and can concentrate on running their business.”

The DaisySentry device provides firewalls, WiFi and LAN segments, 4G failover, VPN and content filtering – all managed via a cloud management portal that enforces pre-configured security templates. With built-in Daisy WiFi, the customer is also able to provide compliant public hot spots and in turn enhance their customers’ shopping experience.
