Cloud Based Fuel Monitoring System From Warren Rogers Simplifies PCI Compliance and Features Multi-Layered Security

By |December 6th, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized||0 Comments

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — (December 5, 2016) Warren Rogers, a leading provider of precision fuel monitoring to convenience stores and other fuel retailers, announced the availability of its PCI compliant, cloud based fuel monitoring system. The enhanced system possesses built-in, multi-layered, and redundant security measures and helps expedite PCI acceptance from corporate compliance and Information Technology (IT) departments.

Integral to the system is the Warren Rogers on-site processor (OSP), a network appliance that is installed at each fuel retailer’s location. The OSP collects fuel data from a variety of on-site peripherals. The raw data is securely transmitted in real-time to Warren Rogers’ highly scalable and redundant cloud infrastructure. Once received, Warren Rogers performs statistical analysis and generates comprehensive reports that can be distributed to a variety of endpoint systems. All phases of the Warren Rogers data collection processes, including the collection, storage, and transmission of sensitive customer information, both meet and exceed current compliance regulations enforced by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).

The Warren Rogers OSP which has an outgoing connection only, requires a single encrypted channel to perform data transmission. As a result, there are no holes in the retailer’s firewall that would require burdensome oversight by their IT staff. In addition, Warren Rogers does not require customer VPN access to perform fuel and security compliance maintenance. Instead, Warren Rogers utilizes its proprietary management system to perform all maintenance operations thereby reducing customer IT overhead.

Warren Rogers can assure that the data collected and transmitted only contains the minimum amount of corporate information that’s needed for data processing operations and does not contain customer cardholder data.

“Our clients are concerned with protecting their customer’s credit card information and satisfying strict Payment Card Industry standards,” […]
