SALT LAKE CITY, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MokiMobility, cloud-based provider for managing, monitoring and securing tablets and smartphones as mobile point-of-sale devices, today announced a partnership with Revel Systems – the leader in iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions for restaurant, grocery and retail business establishments – bringing the first and only mobile and iPad point-of-sale solution to market to meet the PCI Security Standards Council's newest set of mobile point-of-sale security guidelines. Released in February 2013, these guidelines represent the most comprehensive set of security considerations for mobile point-of-sale to-date from the credit card standards group.
"With these new guidelines it's important to consider how developers, merchants and solutions providers need to look at the environment as a whole, not just the mobile point-of-sale app itself," said Tom Karren, CEO of MokiMobility. "They're now faced with the challenge of diving into the network, the device, the OS, peripherals and other applications. A true management, monitoring and security solution such as ours that allows these users to go beyond the scope of just the app is critical."
As part of this relationship, Revel Systems will integrate the MokiManage platform into its iPad point-of-sale solution, providing end-users with comprehensive monitoring, management and security capabilities across all Revel iPad point-of-sale deployments, including several thousand immediate distributions. This move positions Revel as the first, and only, mPOS and iPad POS provider to meet the new PCI SSC guidelines.
"This partnership is the catalyst that will drive growth and adoption of iPad POS," said Chris Ciabarra, CTO and co-founder of Revel Systems. "Scaling iPad deployments and securing each device to securely process payments is a very high priority for us. MokiMobility is the only vendor that could deliver us the management capabilities we need for our customers as well as the security and monitoring features necessary to meet the PCI guidelines."
Based in Lehi, Utah, MokiMobility is the first and only cloud platform for managing, monitoring and securing purposed mobile devices as mobile point-of-sale solutions. Independent software vendors (ISVs) and solution providers can integrate the management and monitoring features of MokiManage directly into their own tablet solutions running on the iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices. As a result, tablet solution customers have greater control over the complete experience, enabling more engaging and new customer experiences leveraging iOS and Android tablets in new ways.
