Transaction Network Services (TNS), a leader in fintech payment services, announces the launch of TNS Secure SD-WAN which leverages Fortinet’s leading Secure SD-WAN solution. In partnership with Fortinet, TNS Secure SD-WAN combines proven managed payment services with next generation network security.
The new service can help businesses seeking a solution in a secure SD-WAN environment achieve digital transformation, embrace cloud adoption and maximise technology budgets.
TNS Secure SD-WAN is a fully integrated, end-to-end managed solution that can simplify a retailers’ operations by centrally managing their network and addressing the complexity that always-connected commerce presents for merchants. With TNS, retailers can securely connect, among other things, online e-commerce gateways, Automatic Teller Machines, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, cash registers, printers, back office computing, forecourt tank gauges, CCTV cameras, number plate recognition technology, and even guest customer Wi-Fi.
“SD-WAN is already widely available to businesses, but TNS brings PCI DSS compliant security credentials and global payments experience as a managed service,” said Bill Versen, Chief Product Officer at TNS. “Our SD-WAN solution enables merchants to prioritise their data usage centrally to secure their payments and business-critical systems.”
As store environments become more complex and expensive, working with a managed service provider like TNS simplifies the modernisation of payment acceptance, further helping our clients realise better total cost of ownership. TNS’ SD-WAN solution uses hardware from Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions and a named leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure.
To help prevent data breaches, TNS Secure SD-WAN includes next generation stateful firewalls (including IP SEC VPN tunnels), anti-virus features, URL filtering and SSL packet inspection to increase safety across retail estates.
“Our partnership with Fortinet focuses on the unique requirements of merchants needing to manage retail systems, protect sensitive card data and complete digital transformation sooner rather than later,” added Versen. “If coronavirus has taught us anything, it is that omnichannel is more paramount than ever. It is a lifeline that enables delivery, curbside, and onsite, but it adds complexity and increased risk to payment transaction processing.”
As a trusted partner to the payments industry, TNS offers a broad portfolio of secure commerce solutions that include parking reservations, unattended payments, POS services, ATM connectivity and managed processing. In 2020, TNS celebrates 30 years of being a worldwide provider to companies in mission critical industries. Many of the most prestigious financial institutions, POS ISOs, ATM deployers and transaction processors rely on TNS for secure and resilient infrastructure services, including managed connectivity. TNS’ secure infrastructure services are supported 24x7x365 from Network Operating Centres in the US, UK and Australia.
