Mako Networks Achieves Sixth Straight Year of PCI DSS Certification

Chicago, IL — Mako Networks has announced that for the sixth straight year the company has successfully completed an annual PCI DSS certification audit process with Verizon Business.   The onsite audit against PCI DSS 3.1 was completed in May, 2016 and verifies Mako’s ongoing certification and compliance with PCI standards. This success reiterates Mako’s continued commitment to excellence in helping their merchant clients more easily meet their PCI DSS obligations.


Mako’s PCI DSS certified network management solution can assist merchants of any size to more easily create a secure cardholder data environment. Mako Networks was the first network management company in the world to be PCI DSS-certified.


The Mako System consists of cloud-managed network appliances and features a PCI compliance template to make it simple to create PCI DSS compliant payment networks, while not burdening the rest of a business network with the rules and regulations that apply to their payment network.  Mako technology ensures that outside threats are kept at bay with world-class security technologies, and internal network settings are applied and maintained to provide constant, assured compliance.


The scope of the PCI DSS audit conducted on Mako Networks includes customer premise appliance (ADSL, VDSL, Ethernet, 3G/4G connectivity), network firewall, enhanced VPN, mesh VPN, intrusion detection, compliance reporting, Wi-Fi, and cloud-based central management systems.


Simon Gamble, President North America, Mako Networks said, “I’m proud to be part of a company that takes security seriously.  Mako Networks technology is delivering network connectivity, security, control and reporting to some of the country’s largest organizations.”


Jason Kubasak, CEO, Mako Networks said, “Gaining the PCI DSS 3.1 certification differentiates Mako from the competition. Retailers that use Mako technology to protect their networks show they care for their customers’ data and personally identifiable information. More and more major brands are adopting our solution every month.”
