Mako Networks Authorized by ExxonMobil to Deliver Secure Networking Solutions to U.S.-based Exxon™ and Mobil™ Locations


Leading Petro & Fuel Supplier Approves Use of the PCI-Certified Mako System for Cloud-Managed SD-WAN, Firewall and MNSP Services

CHICAGO – April 17, 2024 – Mako Networks, a leader in secure, cloud-managed networks for distributed enterprises, announced today that ExxonMobil, one of the largest publicly traded energy and petrochemical companies, has authorized Exxon™ and Mobil™-branded retail locations in the U.S. to use Mako Networks as their managed network service provider (MNSP).

Exxon™ and Mobil™-branded retail locations can now benefit from Mako Networks’ suite of secure networking solutions, including the Mako System, a PCI-certified, cloud-managed and carrier-independent networking solution that allows distributed enterprises to easily create secure, high-performance business networks supporting credit card transactions and digital experiences like self-service gas, self-checkout, tap-to-pay, loyalty apps and more.

ExxonMobil is committed to enhancing the Branded Wholesaler (BW) experience for their BWs and their customers. The Mako System enables BWs to cost-effectively deploy digital initiatives to boost operational efficiency and customer convenience with confidence that networks are secure and compliant.

ExxonMobil BWs can leverage the Mako System to connect and manage tens to thousands of sites via a highly secure, reliable, scalable and cost-effective cloud management system (CMS) that supports a range of critical services, including SD-WAN, next-gen firewall, VPN connections and cellular failover. Plus, it offers active management and reporting with single-pane secure network controls.

“We’re thrilled to receive approval to support ExxonMobil sites in the U.S.,” said Simon Gamble, President and Co-Founder at Mako Networks. “We’re honored to work with an innovative leader in the petro and fuel industry like ExxonMobil to enable their BWs to meet the growing demands for digital services – securely, reliably and cost-effectively.”

The Mako System consists of two parts:

  • The Mako Central Management System (CMS) is the cloud application that makes it easy for distributed enterprises to configure, deploy and manage Mako devices from a single pane of glass, anytime, anywhere, with any Internet-connected device with a web browser. Multifactor authentication (MFA) and role-based access ensure secure authorized access. It supports advanced networking features like remote configurations, automated alerts, reports and diagnostics.
  • Mako’s Managed Network Devices are available in various types, functions and form factors, including security gateways, VPN concentrators, access points and managed switches — all designed for ease of management and high security.

Notably, the Mako System is certified to PCI DSS Level One Service Provider standards. Unlike other providers that offer PCI-compliant services, Mako’s underlying technology is PCI certified annually by an independent Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), so PCI compliance is easier for customers to achieve while having less risk exposure.
