Mama Fu's Asian House has selected ANXeBusiness Corp. as its PCI security compliance partner. The alliance supports Mama Fu's initiative to help its franchisees keep sensitive customer card data safe from cyber criminals using ANX's SecurePCI solution, said Randy Murphy, Mama's Fu's president and CEO. The solution provides each Mama Fu's location with $100,000 of data breach protection services. SecurePCI also includes a comprehensive managed security and compliance solution featuring leading-edge security technology and powerful tools to make achieving PCI compliance faster and easier for Mama Fu's locations.
"When looking for a PCI security compliance partner, we wanted to find a partner that was more than a compliance check box provider," Murphy said. "Many of the other providers out there only wanted to manage security on the POS network, ignoring the many other parts of the network that are part of a technology forward-driven concept like Mama Fu's Asian House."
Mama Fu's Director of Information Systems Scott Morgan said that when it came time for ANX to deploy the first franchise partner site, one concern he had was that because of the very tightly integrated set of IS systems that Mama Fu's uses, a mistake by a vendor could leave a hole in the defenses.
"To help to minimize the possibility if this occurring, ANX created a custom solution that provides each new franchise partner site with a service to pre-stage, provision, label and tag the every IS system component other than the POS system and then installs all said equipment as part of our store opening process," he said. "They work very closely with each of our individual technology partners to ensure that the underlying network works for each vendor without compromising security."
