Little Rock, Arkansas — September 24, 2019 — (BUSINESS WIRE)– Windstream Enterprise (WE), a leading supplier of advanced network communications, announced today its entire portfolio of SD-WAN and Managed Network Security (MNS) services is now PCI DSS compliant.
“Network security continues to be the most important challenge and concern for enterprises of all sizes,” said Mike Frane, vice president of product management for Windstream Enterprise. “PCI DSS compliance strengthens SD-WAN and MNS and is an important differentiator as very few competing SD-WAN and MNS services in the marketplace are certified as PCI DSS compliant.”
Validating PCI compliance is an annual requirement for all organizations that process credit card payments. Customers can leverage the Windstream Enterprise SD-WAN and Managed Network Security Attestation of Compliance (AOC) as part of their audit, reducing their burden both in terms of people time and external costs as they work towards achieving or maintaining their own compliance.
Windstream Enterprise recently expanded its SD-WAN portfolio to also include Fortinet’s industry leading Secure SD-WAN solution. With this announcement, the entire Windstream portfolio of MNS and Fortinet-provided services is covered under the AOC, including new compliance designation for the following based on Fortinet technology: SD-WAN with Fortinet and MNS. PCI DSS compliance reporting tools from Fortinet were used in the validation process.
