HSS Hire has simplified security applications and streamlined compliance processes using cloud risk-based approach to information assurance from SureCloud.
The building equipment and tools supplier needed to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and chose SureCloud’s information security and IT govemance, risk and compliance (GRC) software-as-a-service (SaaS) help continuously assess operations and fix any vulnerabilities identified.
“SureCloud has minimised the threat of non-compliance, enhanced the security of our data and given us a visibility that we simply didn’t have previously. And it’s all delivered in a single, cost effective package,” said Dennis Joseph, HSS Hire computer services manager:
Joseph also told RetailTechnology the company has been able to consolidate its security and compliance requirements, which has, in turn, increased the speed at which it can implement PCI, required controls. “SureCloud’s SaaS platform is providing HSS Hire with centralised management of functions that it would otherwise have to buy as separate point solutions,” he said.
The company is using SureCloud modules to replace point systems, such as those used for vulnerability management and scanning. event and log monitoring and wireless intrusion detection systems (IDS). “HSS Hire also has SureCloud’s own penetration test management module that does not directly compare with anything else on the market,” Joseph added.
“PCI compliance is merely a snapshot in time;’ he concluded.”You can be compliant today, but tomorrow something may happen to your network that makes you no longer compliant, so continual review is key. [Also, as] no system is ever 100% risk or vulnerability free, SureCloud does help to ensure things are as tight as possible.”
