Protecting customers' privacy is critical for retailers

Customer fears over identity theft can be a significant obstacle for any retailer, so protecting sensitive data is critical.

Ensuring compliance with commercial regulations enforced by federal and state legislation, as well as managing all of that data, can be overwhelming without a managed file transfer solution to simplify, automate, and secure all file exchanges.

Here are just a few of the state and federal mandates that retail IT departments must meet:

PCI DSS (Version 1.2):  
Maintain the security of credit card transactions, including those sent electronically by batch via file transfer
SOX Section 404:
Establish and document internal guidelines describing how the integrity and security of data transfers will be maintained
Federal and State Business Tax Codes:  
Ensure that tax filings sent by FTP must be based on secure, reliable and confirmable information
Non-Bank Financial Services Rule (April 2012):  
As with SOX, develop and implement internal policies regarding the protection of data integrity and security when in motion
Federal Trade Commission Regulations:  
Protect price monitoring and inventory control data shared with the FTC during file transfers
