Security is one of the biggest challenges facing retail network teams. POS systems, self-service kiosks, and IoT devices are attractive targets for cybercriminals. Nodegrid helps retail companies improve their security posture by providing a centralized platform for holistic, end-to-end network observability and security monitoring. Plus, Nodegrid uses enterprise security features like device geofencing, TPM encryption, firewall packet inspection, and SAML 2.0 authentication integration for added network protection.

Reducing CAPEX & OPEX for retail deployments

A large retailer’s legacy network infrastructure was causing disruptions that impacted the customer experience and increased operational costs. With a single Nodegrid solution, they were able to consolidate and modernize their network to improve efficiency and performance.

Out-of-band (OOB) management is critical to remote network management, but traditional designs involve deploying additional infrastructure that takes up space at every remote site. When a Fortune 500 company needed a streamlined OOB solution at their online distribution center, a single Nodegrid Services Router provided scalable, cost-effective control without wasting rack space, energy, or CAPEX & OPEX.
