Mako VPN Cloud Partner Program Makes Securely Connecting Retailers to their Application Partners Easier, Faster, and More Cost-Efficient

Industry: Technology

Partners participating in the Mako VPN Cloud Partner Program can make services on their networks directly available to distributed retailers utilizing Mako Networks security solutions.

Elgin, IL (PRUnderground) January 9th, 2020

The Mako VPN Cloud Partner Program enables distributed retailer networks to connect securely, reliably, and easily to partner networks. Partners can deploy physical or virtual Mako VPN concentrators to make services in their environments directly available to tens of thousands of retail locations. Retailers who already have a Mako appliance in service can connect to a partner’s network simply by selecting it in the appropriate dropdown menu and following prompts in the Mako Central Management System (CMS).

Mako’s implementation of Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) means retailers can connect to Mako VPN Cloud Partner networks without reconfiguring any internal IP addressing schemes. And since many retail brand security standards do not allow payment environments to access the public Internet, Mako VPN Cloud technology provides retailers with a way to access third-party service providers using a secure Mako VPN Cloud tunnel that bypasses the public Internet, maintaining compliance with PCI DSS and other security standards.

In addition to security, Mako VPN Cloud technology delivers industry-leading resiliency and reliability for connecting retail locations to service provider networks. It also supports grouping of physical or virtual Mako VPN concentrators at one or more data centers and custom configuration of SD-WAN connectivity and failover behavior to provide the desired level of redundancy for each connection.

Mako VPN Cloud Partner Program participants and their customers both benefit from the Mako System’s ease of deployment. Partners can have their customers securely connect to them with “One Click.”

Mako provides partners with:

  • Complimentary or reduced-cost Mako VPN aggregation technology
  • Secure Mako VPN Template for “One Click” configuration
  • Approved Mako marketing documents
  • 24×7 access to Mako technical support

The features that make this connection process so easy also make it fast and cost-effective. Switching to the Mako System from other platforms often yields substantial savings when considering both initial and ongoing costs.
