Lumension® for POS Systems

Lumension provides protection from
malware, zero-day and targeted
attacks against your
Point of Sale systems.

Attacks against POS systems and other fixed function assets
like ATMs, pay-at-the-pump systems and informational kiosks
are increasing – and increasingly sophisticated. Here are
some steps you need to take to protect against malware,
zero-day and targeted attacks.

Protect against unintended or malicious system-wide changes by enforcing standard user accounts and other security configuration settings.

Shield your systems from vulnerabilities in the base OS, native applications and especially 3rd party applications by eliminating unnecessary services and with a comprehensive patching program.

Guard against malware propagated by USB sticks and installation of rogue devices with device and port control.

Defend against the inevitable zero-days due to unpatched vulnerabilities with application whitelisting.

Threat Protection for POS Systems

Targeted attacks on retail Point of Sale (POS) networks and other fixed function assets like ATMs, pay-at-the-pump systems and informational kiosks have entered the scene in a big way recently, ushering in what could be the most damaging cyber-crime opportunities to-date. Balancing business productivity and effective endpoint security has always been a challenge but the remote, Internet-connected POS terminals common place in today’s retail environment provide an even bigger dilemma for the IT teams tasked with securing them.

Lumension protects retail POS endpoints from both known malware and unknown threats (such as zero-day exploits) with a defense-in-depth approach to security. For instance, advanced application whitelisting designed to centrally manage, monitor and control the programs being installed and used, while device / port control capabilities ensure that only trusted peripheral devices like USB sticks or WiFi cards can be used on your endpoints.
