Retailer Uses Cradlepoint Solution to Provide Wireless Failover & Redundancy for Point-of-Sale (PoS) Systems
Cradlepoint devices provide wireless backup of wired Internet connections for retail superstores in the Blinds To Go system. In the event of an outage of the primary Internet land line (T1/fi ber, DSL, or cable) at a Blinds To Go site, Cradlepoint devices automatically switch to its wireless 3G/4G broadband connection within 30 seconds. The point-of-sale (POS) systems connected to the Cradlepoint router continue to operate at broadband speeds without further interruption, ensuring continuous uptime for POS transactions at the Blinds To Go superstore.
POS or point-of sale systems are commonly used in retail stores, restaurants, stadiums, hotels, and casinos. The basic use of these systems is to scan items for purchase, place inorders and/or calculate bills.

The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber-attacks has created a precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. In 2012, credit card and debit card fraud resulted in losses amounting to $11.27 billion. In January 2014 alone, a single cyber-attack exposed more than 105 million identities. To steal this data, one option is to target the point at which a retailer first acquires that card data – the Point-of-Sale (PoS) system. PoS systems are increasingly being targeted by these attackers, which is why it's more important than ever to protect these devices and the systems they are connected to. Read more into the research on these attacks in this Symantec Security Response special report.
