Mothercare, the UK baby products retailer, is to meet its commitment to the PCI Data Security Standard with a combination...
of Imprivata's Onesign authentication appliance and one-time-password tokens from Secure Computing.
Mothercare CFO Neil Harrington, said, "Security of payment data is a critical concern for the whole retail sector."
Most employees have been issued with one-time-password tokens from Secure Computing. Along with username and passwords, the one-time-password tokens and Secure Computing provide network access to staff.
Staff who work in a multi-user workstation environment will access their work via biometric fingerprint readers. Once the readers let the staff into the network, Onesign Single Sign-On automatically logs the user onto the applications to which they have access.
All organisations that handle card payments are required to meet the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a set of security requirements based on industry best practice.
