Cloud-Based Fuel Monitoring System
Warren Rogers introduces its PCI-compliant, cloud-based fuel monitoring system. The enhanced system possesses built-in, multi-layered and redundant security measures, and helps expedite PCI acceptance from corporate compliance and information technology departments. Integral to the system is the Warren Rogers on-site processor (OSP), a network appliance that is installed at each fuel retailer’s location. The OSP collects fuel data from a variety of on-site peripherals. The raw data is securely transmitted in real-time to Warren Rogers’ highly scalable and redundant cloud infrastructure. Once received, Warren Rogers performs statistical analysis and generates comprehensive reports that can be distributed to a variety of endpoint systems. The OSP, which has an outgoing connection only, requires a single encrypted channel to perform data transmission. As a result, there are no holes in a retailer’s firewall. In addition, Warren Rogers does not require customer VPN access; instead it utilizes a proprietary management system to perform all maintenance operations, thereby reducing IT overhead, the company noted.
