A new Vu of IP device management
Precidia Technologies Inc. recently released version 2.3 of its NetVu network configuration manager. This new release gives merchants, specifically oil and convenience store chains, more control when deploying and managing Internet protocol (IP)- enabled POS equipment.
Precidia consulted with the convenience store industry before releasing the latest edition of NetVu. Version 2.3 automates compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard and incorporates remote application download. It is designed to work alongside the POSLynx220 payment router, the iPocket232 IP-access device and other products.
NetVu manages merchant PCI compliance requirements. In much the same way an anti-virus package protects a PC, NetVu automatically updates the POSLynx220 as new threats are recognized and standards evolve.
Version 2.3 also offers the ability to remotely download configurations to a field device. Remote configuration and application download provides a simple, cost effective means of standardizing operators on the same applications and versions.
Also, NetVu now monitors and actively manages the end device. Help desks can remotely detect and resolve problems.
Existing help desk applications can be interfaced to NetVu through standard Web services, thus standardizing and enhancing remote support.
