Designer Lepore selects SonicWALL to protect PoS system

SonicWALL Inc a leading secure network infrastructure company, announced that internationally-known haute couture designer Nanette Lepore has selected SonicWALL technology to provide secure access to its distributed network and protect its Point of Sale system for all credit card transactions.

Since implementing the SonicWALL infrastructure in 2007, Nanette Lepore has streamlined the network security infrastructure as well as protected both customers and employees from sophisticated and damaging security threats and credit card fraud.

"Unless a company is looking to implement a full blown IT staff, they have to look for a way and means of being able to manage the network with a very small staff and implement the best technology that requires minimal support," said Jose Cruz, Network Specialist for Nanette Lepore. "SonicWALL helps streamline IT while maintaining an effective IT presence within the company."

Nanette Lepore's Implementation:
Nanette Lepore is a haute couture fashion designer who works with high end clientele. In addition to having 10 boutiques in the states, one in London and one in Tokyo, her clothes can be found in premier retailers including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Because of the distributed nature of Nanette Lepore's business, the company hired two full-time employees, including Cruz, to help manage and maintain each store's technology, POS, and inventory at the retail warehouse.

On Saturday, October 20, 2007, the FBI notified Nanette Lepore that hackers had compromised 1,300 credit and debit cards.

Hackers had penetrated a supposedly secure network environment, changed the configuration file for the Netopia router, compromised its point of sale system, taken screen captures of customers' credit card purchases and then sold these stolen IDs to a buyer in Spain.

Nanette Lepore was forced to shut down stores in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York, for 1-2 days, losing approximately $1-$1.5 million worth of business.

Cruz immediately called Nanette Lepore's systems integrator, Webistix, asking for a review to create PCI compliant network security.

Webistix analyzed the situation that very weekend and, based on their recommendation, Nanette Lepore selected SonicWALL for its network security.

"Webistix recommended SonicWALL to secure our network environment after reviewing PCI compliant Spec sheets," said Cruz.

"We then engaged a PCI Auditor to target the Las Vegas store and attempt to breach the security. We passed with flying colors. From that point on, I installed SonicWALL TZ 180s in all of our stores."

Using SonicWALL, Nanette Lepore went from having a demonstrably vulnerable security system to being locked down to a point where the service company could not access the network for maintenance. All visitors whether it be network maintenance or investors have a temporary account witha timer on it.
