TNS and Fortinet. An Unbeatable Combination for Bringing SD-WAN to Secure Payment Services

TNS Secure SD-WAN delivers PCI DSS compliant payment capability

TNS, in partnership with Fortinet, now offers a PCI compliant, highly secure SD-WAN solution for merchants, banks and acquirers who have payments as a mission-critical function.

As companies move towards a digital transformation, SD-WAN is the preferred network solution especially when a PCI DSS compliant payment capability is a strategic requirement.

TNS Secure SD-WAN solves some of the most critical issues for merchants, leveraging its 30-year legacy in providing reliable and resilient payment connectivity to customers around the world.


Reliability and Flexibility

For SD-WAN, TNS supports LTE backwards compatible connectivity that’s remotely adjustable. Its secure SD-WAN routers are “zero-touch” and its SIM cards can be remotely activated or deactivated to eliminate the prospect of dormant SIMs.

TNS delivers resiliency by diversifying risk by contracting with multiple carriers. It maintains geographic redundancy through its global network operating centers (NOCs). This also ensures high server availability.


Reduce OpEx

By leveraging internet connectivity and replacing MPLS, TNS Secure SD-WAN reduces OpEx by up to 40%.

Additional savings are realized as excess data is contained, and economies of scale are applied to router distribution, compliance and security costs.


Unsurpassed Uptime

TNS Secure SD-WAN will have persistent monitoring from its three Network Operating Centers (NOCs) located in the US, UK and Australia. This is how TNS delivers an unsurpassed connectivity uptime standard.

In payments as in network connectivity, ensuring network resilience and reliability is a strategic imperative.


Exceptional In-Store Experience

TNS supports in-store cloud applications which can provide customers with secure wi-fi and LAN switching.

The flexibility of SD-WAN means that you can add services or capabilities as your business requires.
