Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – May 6, 2008 – Privately held dedicated web hosting company, The Planet, has unveiled six new promotions for May, including savings of up to 26 percent on its two Check Point solutions, as the company’s first-ever firewall discount.
Urvish Vashi, Director of Product Management at The Planet explained, ”The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard requires companies to have a secure firewall in place when accepting credit card payments. Companies that are compromised face serious risks as well as the loss of revenue and their hard-gained good reputations if there are breaches to their sites. This promotion signals a great time for companies to review their security profile and to consider an upgrade to their hosting infrastructures.”
