TNS leverages Fortinet Secure SD-WAN so retailers can embrace digital transformation and cloud adoption

By

PROMOTIONAL NEWS: Transaction Network Services has announced the launch of TNS Secure SD-WAN, which leverages Fortinet’s leading Secure SD-WAN solution to "combine proven managed payment services with next generation network security".

Transaction Network Services (TNS) bills itself "a leader in fintech payment services", and says its new TNS Secure SD-WAN service, in partnership with Fortinet, can "help businesses seeking a solution in a secure SD-WAN environment achieve digital transformation, embrace cloud adoption and maximise technology budgets".

We're told that TNS Secure SD-WAN is "a fully integrated, end-to-end managed solution that can simplify a retailers’ operations by centrally managing their network and addressing the complexity that always-connected commerce presents for merchants.

"With TNS, retailers can securely connect, among other things, online e-commerce gateways, Automatic Teller Machines, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, cash registers, printers, back office computing, forecourt tank gauges, CCTV cameras, number plate recognition technology, and even guest customer Wi-Fi".

Michael Johnson, the APAC MD of TNS FinTech Solutions said: "SD-WAN is already widely available to businesses, but TNS brings PCI DSS compliant security credentials and global payments experience as a managed service.

“Our SD-WAN solution enables merchants to prioritise their data usage centrally to secure their payments and business-critical systems.”

TNS explains that "as store environments become more complex and expensive, working with a managed service provider like TNS simplifies the modernisation of payment acceptance, further helping our clients realise better total cost of ownership.

"TNS’ SD-WAN solution uses hardware from Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions and a named leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure.

"To help prevent data breaches, TNS Secure SD-WAN includes next generation stateful firewalls (including IP SEC VPN tunnels), anti-virus features, URL filtering and SSL packet inspection to increase safety across retail estates".

Johnson added: “Our partnership with Fortinet focuses on the unique requirements of merchants needing to manage retail systems, protect sensitive card data and complete digital transformation sooner rather than later.

“If coronavirus has taught us anything, it is that omnichannel is more paramount than ever. It is a lifeline that enables delivery, curbside, and onsite, but it adds complexity and increased risk to payment transaction processing,” Johnson concluded.

TNS notes that it is "a trusted partner to the payments industry" and offers "a broad portfolio of secure commerce solutions that include parking reservations, unattended payments, POS services, ATM connectivity and managed processing".

2020 is a milestone year for the company as it "celebrates 30 years of being a worldwide provider to companies in mission critical industries.

"Many of the most prestigious financial institutions, POS ISOs, ATM deployers and transaction processors rely on TNS for secure and resilient infrastructure services, including managed connectivity. TNS’ secure infrastructure services are supported 24x7x365 from Network Operating Centres in the US, UK and Australia".

Transaction Network Services (TNS) reminds us that it is "a leading global provider of infrastructure-as-a-service solutions and is committed to delivering these solutions and superior service to the world’s most prestigious payments, financial services, and telecommunications companies".

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
