VINCI Park Secures Customer Credit Card Payments With Fortinet(R)

VINCI Park Secures Customer Credit Card Payments With Fortinet(R) 
FortiGate(R) Appliances Meet PCI-DSS Security Requirements With
Simplicity and Cost-Effectiveness 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 --  Fortinet(R) (NASDAQ:
FTNT) -- a world leader in high-performance network security -- today
announced that VINCI Park, the world's largest car park operator, has
deployed the FortiGate(R) network security platform to help secure
its clients' credit card payments and to help comply with the PCI-DSS
standard. This implementation encompasses 500 car parks in France and
VINCI Park's main sites around the world. Fortinet's FortiGate
appliances were chosen for their ability to easily and
cost-effectively meet PCI-DSS compliance requirements, specifically
allowing the encryption of electronic payment transactions, the
partitioning of infrastructure traffic flows, advanced attacks
detection and the creation of compliance reports.  
Founded in 2001 by VINCI, the world's leading group in concessions
and construction, VINCI Park incorporates all VINCI's activities in
the car park sector and related services. The group designs, builds,
finances and manages the operation of on-street and off-street car
parks for private and public entities. VINCI Park manages nearly 1.5
million parking places in more than 2,500 car parks around the world
and, in 2012, had revenues of 700 million Euros. The company has a
presence in the following 13 countries: Belgium, Canada, Czech
Republic, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Qatar, Russia, Slovakia,
Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States. 
Any organization using, storing or transmitting credit card data must
comply with the PCI-DSS standard. In 2011, VINCI Park researched a
number of network security vendors that could meet the standard's
requirements and sent a request for proposal (RFP) to local
integrators that represented those vendors. Axians, a networking and
telecoms integrator and a subsidiary of VINCI Energies, won the RFP
for the integration and support of Fortinet's FortiGate appliances
that represented the best consolidated security solution. Specific
integrated features delivered on the FortiGate platform include:
firewall for partitioning the infrastructure traffic flows; VPN for
encrypting electronic money t
ransactions; antivirus and IPS for
attack detection; and QoS for prioritizing payment transactions.
Tight security integration enables the FortiGate platform to meet the
PCI-DSS requirements without adding unnecessary complexity while
maintaining control on associated costs. VINCI Park has also chosen
the FortiGate devices for their reliability and ease of
"Even though we had never been attacked and our network was secured
against banking data theft, we wanted to protect our customers
further by complying with the PCI-DSS standard. Fortinet technology
allowed us to secure and partition transactions from end-to-end,
between the payment terminals located in our car parks -- that allow
our customers to pay for their parking by credit cards -- and banks.
Today, these transactions are strictly directed to banks and are
saved and decrypted by those only," said Guillaume Martin, deputy
director of the IT System Department at VINCI Park. "Besides
perfectly meeting the pre-requisites of our specifications, we
trusted Fortinet technology, which had already proved itself within
VINCI group, in particular at VINCI Energies."  
390 FortiGate-60C and 110 FortiGate-50B were deployed in 500 VINCI
Park car parks located in France. Regarding the main international
sites, the deployment of FortiGate devices has been completed in
Spain, UK, Czech Republic and Slovakia and further deployments will
take place this year in the other countries. 
All FortiGate appliances are remotely managed from VINCI Park's
headquarters located in Rueil-Malmaison, France, using Fortinet's
FortiManager(TM)-1000C, a complete and easy-to-use centralized
management platform. Using Fortinet's FortiAnalyzer(TM)-2000B, a
centralized logging and reporting appliance, VINCI Park is able to
log daily data from all FortiGate appliances and create PCI-DSS
compliant statistics and reports.  
"Cybercriminal attacks have become very complex, aiming at
penetrating corporate networks to steal valuable data, such as
cardholder data. PCI-DSS focuses on fighting this scourge, but, even
though compliance to the standard has become mandatory, its
implementation remains very complex for companies," said Patrice
Perche, senior vice president of international sales and support at
Fortinet. "With our network security platforms, VINCI Park gets a
solution that ensures optimum security and avoids the unnecessary
deployment of multiple po
int products. We are very proud to have
helped VINCI Park achieve PCI-DSS compliance while allowing them to
rationalize their costs and simplify their administration."
