Wontok joins global efforts of governing bodies, merchants and financial groups to innovate risk mitigating methods and technology towards stopping cyber attacks
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – February 25, 2014 – Wontok, Inc. the provider of proven data security solutions announces two new solutions in its Malware Prevention for Online Financial Transactions and Remote Endpoints line aimed for both Retail Point-of-Sale [POS] machines and Bank ATMs at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, February 25-28, 2014.
“We’ve built a great client base for Wontok™ SafeCentral, and our expansion to support merchants and financial groups is both timely and strategic towards accomplishing our mission to restore trust in online communications and commerce conducted around the world especially during a time when consumer data breaches globally have reached an all-time high,” said Adam Tegg, CEO of Wontok.
Wontok’s data security solutions are built with the assumption that malware is already inside the network or machine. Wontok™ SafeCentral provides a containerized environment to make each transaction safe. Recent research has indicated that if you’re a retailer, much like Target’s recent consumer data breach, malware may already be in your Point-of-Sale system. Cybercrime is increasing in volume and reach. In the past year alone, the FBI has uncovered 20 cases of cyber-attacks against retailers.
Additionally, in 42 days from the date of this release, Microsoft ends full support of Windows XP which it announced in 2010. NCR estimates that 95% of the world’s ATM machines are still running Windows XP. Windows XP-based ATMs no longer receiving patches and updates will be vulnerable to increasingly sophisticated and frequent malware attacks.
Wontok™ SafeCentral POS for Retailers and Wontok™ SafeCentral ATM for Banks provide malware prevention for online financial transactions and remote endpoints. Both provide an added layer of security that prevents advanced threats and other forms of malware from executing. Wontok SafeCentral POS and Wontok SafeCentral ATM are superior to antivirus or firewalls in preventing financial malware threats and are designed to be used in conjunction with current security solutions. Because each operates deep within the operating system, each effectively creates a barricade against advanced threats, banking Trojans, botnets, zero-day exploits, as well as other memory and data stealing malware rendering malware inoperable.
