Land O’Lakes, Fla. (June 8, 2016) – Security breaches are a high risk for retailers, and every precaution must be taken to avoid cardholder data from being compromised through retail store systems. RPE, a leading retail merchandising and supply chain consulting firm, recently became certified by the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) as a Qualified Integrator and Reseller (QIR). As a QIR-approved company, RPE helps retailers mitigate the risk of a data breach due to improperly installed retail point of sale solutions.
The QIR program provides RPE with tools to assist retailers in installing and configuring validated Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) to meet today’s strict compliances.
“Many breaches are due to improperly installed or configured payment applications, and retailers can feel confident that RPE provides the quality and reliability to implement a payment application that supports specific PCI DSS compliance,” said Rob Henneke, executive vice president, RPE.
RPE is able to securely access, install, maintain and support payment applications, and any dependent software, in accordance with the information provided by the application vendor to reduce the risk of a security breach.
“This highly-valued certification requires extensive testing and ongoing training, and supports our continued efforts to be an industry leader in retail point of sale solutions and retail store systems,” said Henneke.
