PRESS RELEASE

Spartanburg, SC (October 30, 2014) — QS/1 is taking PCI data protection to the next level for its customers by partnering with ANX, an industry leader in helping pharmacies and small retail businesses secure and protect systems and networks from data breaches.

“While the Internet has helped society in many ways, criminals have found ways to use it for their gain,” said Charles Garner, QS/1 Market Analyst. “Every day, they use sophisticated technologies and advanced hacking methods to make their way into the computer networks of small businesses.”

By partnering with ANX, QS/1 is able to recommend an industry leader in data breach protection for pharmacies. Research has found 75 percent of data breaches within small businesses happen in the restaurant and healthcare sectors. ANX can help pharmacies better secure their networks to minimize the risk of network attacks. ANX also offers comprehensive coverage up to $100,000 per location to help cover a mandatory PCI forensic audit, card replacement costs, and fines that result from a data breach.

"ANX is delighted to form a partnership with a pharmacy industry leader like QS/1," said Mark Wayne, EVP of ANX. "Both companies have deep pharmacy expertise and a commitment to protect pharmacies from the perils of data breach."
