Hitachi ID to demonstrate identity management solutions for PCI compliance and IT cost savings at NRF conference

Retail customers from A&P Tea Company to already leverage Hitachi ID solutions to address identity and access management challenges

CALGARY, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - With an identity management suite already deployed to over 10 million users at over 800 organizations worldwide, Hitachi ID Systems has a lot of experience in addressing the compliance, controls and operational needs of many organizations, in many verticals, including retail.

In the retail segment in particular, Hitachi ID solutions help some of the world's leading companies address challenges including PCI compliance and high employee turn-over.

Retailers are required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) -- a clear and concise set of IT operational guidelines designed to prevent disclosure of credit card numbers and transaction records.  These requirements include the use of hard-to-guess passwords, effective controls over access to administrator accounts and more, assignment of job-appropriate security entitlements and more, as described in:

* PCI-DSS 1.2

* PCI-DSS Compliance Using the Hitachi ID Management Suite

"Retailers are faced with two core identity-related challenges: They have to comply with a variety of regulations designed to protect consumer privacy and they simultaneously have to run very cost-effective systems," said Gideon Shoham, Hitachi ID Systems CEO.  "We look forward to demonstrating how our solutions can help retailers meet these objectives at the National Retail Federation's annual conference and exhibition."

NRF conference attendees are invited to visit Hitachi ID on the exhibition floor in booth 3211.  The show is at the Javits Convention Center in New York on January 10 and 11, 2011.
