U.S. convenience stores serve almost 160 million customers each day through thousands of in-store and fuel-dispensed credit card transactions. With fuel and food service largely dependent on internet connectivity, ensuring customer satisfaction can be tiring as well as logistically challenging. But what if there was a way to take some of those operational burdens off your plate? RocketBroadband™ offers revolutionary technology to not only assist in better customer transactions but to ensure PCI compliance as well. Let’s take a look at what these solution means for c-store retailers.

The Problem

Protecting cardholder data is not only an important business practice but an obligatory one. It comes as no surprise that convenience stores and fuel retailers accept credit card payments in many ways. Each of these payment methods must be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS, which has been around since 2007, is meant to protect businesses and their customers from falling victim to credit card data breaches. With this consideration in mind, RocketBroadband has partnered with the nation’s leading PCI-scanning technology. We deliver connectivity how and when it matters most.

The Solution

RocketBroadband’s cornerstone technology, RocketFailover™, not only provides 4G backup Internet connectivity for c-stores and gas stations, but also provides crucial PCI compliant integration. With high-volume petroleum operations, RocketBroadband provides reliable, fast and secure point-of-sale (POS) connectivity to keep mission-critical operations online 24/7.

How RocketFailover Benefits Retailers

RocketFailover seamlessly integrates into any existing PCI-compliant network. By only allowing sensitive customer data that’s already defined within a store’s current architecture, RocketFailover ensures 24/7 reliability for both credit card transactions and scanning requirements.

RocketBroadband Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance scans are conducted through a secure web-based PCI Compliance Scanning portal, which is constantly updated with the latest threat intelligence and certified annually to meet all the PCI Security Standards Council requirements. Rocket Broadband schedules and runs scans for the hosts that store, process or transmit cardholder data. If vulnerabilities are identified, retailers are presented with details about the vulnerabilities and remediation steps that can be used to address them. A store’s team can then work to resolve the findings and rescan the hosts to confirm that all identified vulnerabilities have been addressed.
