Multi-Signal Managed Detection and Response for Retail Companies

Retailers face a complex set of challenges when it comes to protecting their consumer and business data from cyber threats as the retail segment has undergone significant digital transformation due to cloud adoption, the facilitation of e-commerce and the need to fully integrate retail execution systems. Ultimately, your cyber defense comes down to the speed at which you can identify and contain a cyberattack. See how eSentire proactively detects, disrupts, and remediates cyber threats affecting retail companies before they impact your supply chain, your business, and your customers.

Get Started

From producer to consumer - prevent critical operational disruption with 24/7 protection across your supply chain

Expanding digital platforms, valuable PCI data, third-party vendor & supply chain access, and operational exposure are only some of the factors that contribute to cyber risk for retailers. Data breaches in the retail sector have been highly publicized and financial implications are growing.

Unfortunately, margin pressures, rising competition, and an uncertain economic outlook create an uphill battle to obtain the funding and resources required to protect your environment from cyber threats. Although cybersecurity awareness is growing at the executive and board level, retail cybersecurity leaders continue to find themselves under-resourced against today’s cyber threat landscape - where attackers are striking with increased speed and precision.

Common retail cyberattacks include:

  • Credential phishing
  • Malware
  • Ransomware
  • Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks

Whether your organization is a brick-and-mortar or ecommerce retailer, threat actors are going to capitalize on vulnerable systems and human nature to achieve their objectives. Your retail cybersecurity teams need to be able to:

Protect your network 24/7

Meet the PCI DSS and other industry compliance requirements

Protect point-of-sale systems and cardholder data

Implement strong access control measures, especially for privileged users

Defend against attackers targeting your supply chain or third-party vendors

Ultimately, protection of your consumer and business data will come down to the speed at which you can identify and contain an attack. Retail companies need 24/7 threat hunting services including Managed Detection and Response (MDR) in order to quickly detect malicious activity, stop breaches, simplify security and minimize their business risk.

Meet Your PCI DSS Compliance Requirements

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council is focused on protection of payment account data throughout the payment lifecycle through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Any retailer that transacts with any one of the major credit card companies must adhere to the PCI Data Security Standards.

PCI DSS directs how organizations should securely manage credit card account numbers and payment card data to best protect the collection, storage, and transmission of cardholder data from e-commerce transactions.

Compliance with PCI DSS may seem challenging but we are here to help you navigate these requirements. Download this checklist to see how eSentire’s services map to PCI DSS 3.2.1 and find out how we can support you in adhering to compliance requirements.
