Your Pie Restaurants, Recently Rated One of the Best Values in Franchising, Relies Exclusively on Mako Networks Edge Appliances To Protect POS Transactions as their Business Continues To Expand

Elgin, IL (PRUnderground) August 8th, 2019

Mako Networks delivers PCI-compliant managed network appliances and services to all Your Pie restaurants as the fast casual restaurant company expands from their home in Athens, Georgia, to locations nationwide. With Mako handling their networking technology, Your Pie can keep their focus on providing authentic, Italian-inspired, brick-oven pizza and craft beer.

All Your Pie restaurants deploy Mako 6500-M/LTE appliances with 1Gbps transfer speeds and built-in VPNs. To maintain cost-effective uptime, each location also has a Verizon or Sprint LTE cellular data plan incorporated into an SD-WAN.

Built with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) in mind, the Mako 6500-M/LTE allows businesses to quickly and easily segment their payment networks, apply strict security controls, and lock down their systems to PCI DSS criteria. It is rich with advanced features, such as PCI-compliant Wi-Fi and high-performance SD-WAN. With a sealed, tamper-evident unit, no moving parts, and high heat tolerance, the 6500-M/LTE is well-suited to the tough network environments found at restaurants.

“The Mako system’s ability to provide fast failover from broadband to cellular allows our restaurants to maintain full network operation during broadband outages,” said John Lapeyrouse, CIO. “In addition to the security features and PCI compliance benefits, being able to offer seamless service for our guests was a deciding factor for Your Pie.”

“Mako Networks has established a strong presence in the restaurant industry. Our relationship with Your Pie is a great example of how a modern, fast-growing restaurant chain can leverage our cost-effective, all-inclusive networking technology to facilitate growth,” said Jason Kubasak, CEO of Mako Networks. “The ease of deploying and scaling our solution has proven to be a real advantage for newer companies like Your Pie that are not heavily invested in old, outdated networking technology and expensive à la carte service plans.”
