  • Retailers Continue to Experience Higher Theft Losses From Shoplifters
  • Over $4.7 billion was lost to shoplifting and employee theft in just 25 U.S. retail companies in 2002, with only 2.43 percent of those losses resulting in a recovery, according to the 15th Annual Retail Theft Survey conducted by Jack L. Hayes International, a leading loss prevention and inventory shrinkage control consulting firm.

    "The losses are staggering and continue to amaze us," said Mark R. Doyle, Vice President at Hayes International. "Both the number of shoplifters apprehended and the dollars recovered from those apprehensions increased for the second year in a row. In addition, for the sixth consecutive year the dollars recovered from shoplifters where no apprehension was made increased significantly over the prior year."

  • How safe is your inventory from internet attack?
  • Your business can't afford the loss to an attack, especially during your busy season. Don't rely on a $50 firewall from your local computer store, it can't protect you from the myriad of threats out there today. One Step Data has teamed up with SonicWALL for the industry standard in Internet Security Solutions with the TZ 170 SP, a total security platform designed for Retail POS applications.

    On top of the superior security and protection the SonicWALL ensures continuous network uptime through integrated failover technology. Plus, you get the additional protection of content filtering, deep packet inspection, and intrusion prevention; none of which comes with your $50 low budget "firewall".
