Solution Benefits:

Save time: Save IT resources by saving time, expertise, and money spent managing monolithic networks.


Decrease PCI scope: Minimize IT effort required to maintain PCI Compliance.


Mitigate security risks: If an employee device or third party network is compromised, there is no risk the attackers could pivot to other servers or networks, including those that hold sensitive data.


Reduce soft costs: Parallel Networking often reduces an enterprise's soft costs, including the need for complex network configurations that are subject to human error, more complicated PCI Compliance audits, and the general quality of service (QoS) setting for specific applications.
