NUUO Receives PCI DSS Certification for Its Surveillance Video Management Solutions
NUUO’s certified software and appliances for video surveillance equipment protect retailers from theft, enable superior customer analysis, and provide an auditable track record of all transactions

March 19, 2015 - NUUO, a leading provider of surveillance video management solutions, today announced that its NUUO Crystal family (NUUO CrystalTM), as well as Mainconsole Family (NUUO Mainconsole Tri-Brid) solutions have received the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) 3.0 certification. The certification was awarded by Nexusguard Consulting Limited on February 1st, 2015.

PCI DSS is a set of requirements developed and maintained by the PCI Security Standards Council. Founded by a number of large credit card processing organizations, the goal of the council is to protect cardholder data by establishing rules for merchants, financial institutions, and other organizations that process, transmit and store cardholder data. The 12 main PCI DSS requirements include: build and maintain a secure network and systems; protect cardholder data; maintain a vulnerability management program; implement strong access control measures; regularly monitor and test networks, and maintain an information security policy.

To become compliant with PCI DSS, an organization needs to demonstrate a high level of adherence to the standards set forth by the council. To provide customers with the best security options, as well as to avoid potential legal actions and financial losses resulting from theft and security breaches, retailers and merchants of all sizes are encouraged to pick solution providers that have undergone PCI’s certification process.

NUUO’s certified surveillance video management software and appliances work with the most popular video surveillance cameras. They come with live feeds, instant playbacks, as well as advanced analytical capabilities. NUUO’s solutions help merchants to:

  • Prevent retail shrinkage due to employee theft, as well as shoplifting, break-ins, refund fraud, etc. NUUO’s solutions constantly monitor, analyze, and alert management teams about potentially fraudulent activities or a high-value transactions.
  • Analyze customer behavior to help retailers better understand their target market and customer shopping patterns. The customer analysis features include:
  • Traffic and people counters to measure foot traffic in and out of the store, to enable retailers design better marketing programs, as well as create cost effective schedules for employees. The counters can automatically monitor and count foot traffic at various doors in multiple retail locations. The summary is available based on the time of day, day of the week, month, etc.
  • A heat map program (scheduled for release Q3 2015) to help retailers determine how their customers prefer to shop inside the store (where they choose to stop, what they like to look at, etc.)
  • A face recognition program (scheduled for release Q3 2015) to determine the target market for a particular store, or particular product, by analyzing the age and gender of the shoppers.
NUUO’s solutions are easy to deploy and manage. They offer:

  • An open platform design to ensure compatibility with customers’ existing analog systems.
  • Remote access with live feeds over PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
  • Easy integration with Point of Sale (POS) solutions.
  • Advanced metadata search capabilities to enable retailers to quickly find a video recording of a transaction of interest by using keywords together with the date and time of the transaction.
  • Event log management for different store branches. It enables retailers to find and review all events (such as refunds issued, etc.) of a particular branch on a given date. This feature enables retailers to uncover any potentially fraudulent activity of customers and/or employees.
NUUO’s video surveillance management solutions are currently installed by companies in all industries in over 70 countries. One of NUUO’s large retail customers, Auchan Hypermarket in Romania, has been using the NUUO solutions since 2010. Auchan implemented NUUO’s Mainconsole DVR and CMS solutions in 10 locations to reduce shoplifting and prevent employee theft during the day. At night, the cameras continue monitoring the stores by using motion-based recording capabilities. The installation was quickly completed by NUUO’s local certified partner, easily integrating NUUO’s video management solutions with Auchan’s existing analog cameras and POS system, using a VPN to connect and centrally manage all cameras.

As the result of the installation, the hypermarket’s management team is able to centrally monitor all store events. The system alerts the team of any customer-defined potentially high-risk activity (such as high-value transactions, etc.) to enable them to monitor such events live, or review them after the fact.
