OREM, Utah, April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityMetrics, a global leader in data security and compliance, and Wireless Zone®, the nation's largest wireless retail franchisor, have signed a partnership that will bring data security and PCI compliance to each of Wireless Zone®'s 375 franchisees.
Data breach costs per franchise location are significant and could impact all other owners in a franchise system by tarnishing its brand. Wireless Zone® chose SecurityMetrics as a security vendor because they provide reliable protection, work to take day-to-day burdens off of small business owners, maintain current security updates, and provide reassurance to stores and customers.
"Small businesses often think they don't have valuable data. Yet just one data breach can cause enough damage to force a small business to close, whether through fines, lawsuits or loss of customer confidence. SecurityMetrics offers our Wireless Zone® owners the security and protection they need to protect their businesses at an affordable cost," said Brian Murtari, Wireless Zone® Chief Information Officer.
"This partnership is an opportunity to support small business security while providing corporate visibility across a large network of franchises. We look forward to helping Wireless Zone®'s 375 small businesses close security gaps and prevent data breaches as they grow and expand into more regions," said Troy Tribe, SecurityMetrics Senior Vice President.
