NCR announced the launch of DataGuard software solution to protect consumer data such as driver’s license and social security numbers in addition to payment data.
The NCR DataGuard software solution will initially be available for use with Intel’s new Data Protection Technology (DPT). The company will bring NCR DataGuard software solution later in 2015.
Eli Rosner, CTO and head of Product Management, NCR Retail, said, “Security attacks are expected to continue and we have taken a proactive approach to protecting all categories of consumer data in the face of increasing malicious attacks.”
NCR said retailers can prepare by incorporating the NCR DataGuard hardware platform which is in the latest point-of-sale solutions from NCR that contain the Intel Core and Atom processor with Intel’s DPT technology.
These include the RealPOS 72XRT and the latest RealPOS 82XRT in addition to the RealPOS XR7, of which there are already more than 100,000 already deployed with retailers.
Retailers can manage NCR DataGuard through a centralized, cloud-based enterprise tool that allows users to carry out configuration, set security policies, receive alerts and generate advanced reporting in addition to creating more protection for sensitive consumer data.
