McDonald’s has chosen earthwave to secure its ‘Family Friendly’ internet service in over 720 stores across Australia.

The internet service is available to McDonald’s 1.45 million daily customers through free WiFi hotspots.

earthwave's Clean Pipes service will provide a common security framework to protect users from external and internal internet threats. It provides the iconic restaurant chain with measures and reporting aimed at highlighting and countering potential network security threats.

The Clean Pipes solution involved a multi-million dollar investment by earthwave to develop a defence in-depth security architecture made up of layers of security including firewalls, network intrusion prevention systems, distributed denial of service protection and various web protection mechanisms.

Carlo Minassian, earthwave CEO and founder, said, “It is critical that McDonald’s employs the best security available for its networks and any online information, so it can take advantage of the benefits of providing an internet service to its customers whilst maintaining the highest standards of privacy and security for both its customers and its employees and partners.”
