Securing Point-of-Sale Systems: Ensuring Business Continuity for Retailers
Fixed-function systems, such as point-of-sale (POS), and several legacy systems are vulnerable to advanced attacks that can cripple businesses instantly. To prevent financial losses associated with downtime, retailers need endpoint protection that works effectively to secure fixed-function and legacy systems, without requiring expensive patch upgrades or causing administration headaches.
ColorTokens Xprotect is a proactive endpoint protection solution based on zero trust principles. Xprotect works at the kernel level to detect and prevent unauthorized processes running on POS and fixed-function terminals, while also initiating alerts. This cloud-delivered solution provides powerful and customizable application control that allows only company-sanctioned applications to run — protecting endpoints from unknown and potentially dangerous cyberthreats. Xprotect secures endpoints in offline environments to block advanced attacks such as ransomware and file-less malware. Transparent and ultra-lightweight, Xprotect does not require frequent patch updates.
Xprotect secures POS systems and kiosks running on Windows and Linux operating systems against sophisticated threats. Process-level lockdown enables complete protection from ransomware, zero-day threats, file-less malware, Dtrack malware, advanced persistent threats (APTs), return-oriented programming (ROP), remote access trojans (RATs), and more. This granular process-level protection provides zero trust security for retail fixed-function devices such as POS systems and kiosks, among others.
Most fixed-function devices run on unpatched or difficult-to-patch versions of Windows or Linux, making them vulnerable to cyberattacks. Xprotect enables administrators to make these systems tamper-proof, eliminating the need for expensive, cumbersome, and bandwidth-intensive patch management exercises. Xprotect also cuts upgrade costs for systems that no longer receive patches from the software vendor.
Reports — such as for suspicious files, blocked processes, and incidents — are readily available to download for accelerating security audits of POS, kiosk, and other fixed-function devices. Xprotect makes it easier to meet compliance requirements with granular process-level visibility and control.
