Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Customer Testimonial

Hospitality Company Prevents Attack with AMP for Endpoints

We are a hospitality company and certain franchises haven’t moved to point to point encryption and tokenization yet and that makes detecting malware with memory scraping capabilities very important to use. Recently AMP detected and alerted us to such an attack. Without AMP on this particular hotel computer, we wouldn’t have known that this attack ever occurred. It is possible it stopped thousands of credit card numbers from being stolen.
