Make sure every franchise location in your organization is PCI compliant.

Payment card breaches at franchise locations pose a serious threat. The reality is most locations are not PCI compliant, and most franchisors lack visibility into compliance across their franchise community. It only takes one breach at one location to damage the reputation of your brand across your entire ecosystem. EarthLink can proactively protect your brand with a turnkey solution designed to help you and your franchisees assess and achieve compliance, and protect you on an ongoing basis. We also offer a fully compliant Secure WiFi solution that offers a better customer experience in all your locations.
