MegaPath Inc., the leading provider of managed IP voice, data and security services in North America, today announced that Rumbi Island Grill is using its SecureConnect Site-to-Site VPN and SecureConnect Managed Security services to protect network assets and customer credit card transactions across its 22 locations throughout Arizona, Colorado and Utah.

 "As Rumbi Island Grill continues our rapid growth into new markets, we are balancing PCI compliance with our highest security standards, and we required a solution that provides the best possible protection without increasing the demands on our IT team," said Tommy Triplett, Project Manager at Rumbi Island Grill. "MegaPath provides us with the fully managed infrastructure to share data, access applications, and process credit cards securely, while also delivering the expertise to ensure that we are proactively protected against any new or emerging threats. This provides us the confidence that our business and our customers are protected without requiring us to invest heavily in equipment or personnel resources."

Driving Rumbi Island Grill's security initiative, the company needed to ensure PCI compliance without overburdening its IT team. MegaPath's fully managed enterprise-class security services ensure that the company is PCI compliant and that all customer data is safe from theft at all stages of a credit card transaction - both onsite and in transit. The MegaPath SecureConnect Site-to-Site VPN service delivers enhanced performance and secure communications, allowing Rumbi to increase productivity and grow its business. The SecureConnect Managed Security service protects Rumbi's business information and systems from both internal and external threats through a Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution, which includes Managed Firewall, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention and Web Filtering.

"The security industry is littered with point solutions that only provide partial protection and require significant capital and personnel investments, but these solutions cannot deliver the protection that small to medium sized businesses require," said Dan Foster, SVP, General Manager of SMB Business Markets at MegaPath. "Smaller companies, especially those with distributed retail locations and franchises, require a uniform security infrastructure that offers not only common technology but expert management, and with MegaPath's SecureConnect fully managed UTM and VPN security services, we are providing customers with leading edge technology and the highest levels of expert management to ensure that their corporate and customer assets are safe."

About Rumbi Island Grill
