Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory obtains PCI compliance
Durango, Calif. — Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (RMCF) is providing PCI compliance and security management services to 280-plus franchised RMCF locations using the Cybera One platform. RMCF sought a comprehensive network security solution to facilitate cost-effective PCI Security Council data security standards (DSS) compliance, as well as a solution that could ease implementation and management challenges and protect brand identity.
With the Cybera One platform, RMCF’s franchisees are able to achieve PCI-DSS compliance, protect brand identity, guard against data breaches, and avoid noncompliance fees.
"It was challenging to find an affordable solution that would allow our non-technical franchisees to meet the security needs dictated by the PCI Security Council," said RMCF CIO Key Jobson. “Working with Cybera we have developed a solution that provides the network level security services required by the PCI-DSS, packaged for our franchisees whose core competency is making caramel apples, fudge and selling our gourmet chocolate.”

Endicia releases return shipping solution
Palo Alto, Calif. — Endicia, a provider of e-commerce shipping technologies and services, has released a solution called "Pay-on-Use Returns" exclusively for the United States Postal Service (USPS). Unlike traditional USPS labels, Endicia’s Pay-on-Use Returns shipping labels are not pre-paid.
Postage is only deducted if and when a return label is scanned into the mail stream. Endicia’s Pay-on-Use Returns service joins the existing suite of Endicia Returns solutions, which includes pre-paid USPS return labels and the recently released cross-border Canada Returns. The extended returns’ capability increases the functionality of Endicia’s shipping technology platform, enabling Endicia customers to manage end-to-end shipping labels for domestic and international destinations.
