For the past 30 years, PDQ has provided the car wash industry with cutting-edge technological advances in car wash equipment and car wash systems, including the first contouring arch and the Virtual Treadle.
PDQ has always been recognized as the world-leading manufacturer of touchless car wash equipment with one of the most powerful names in the industry - LaserWash®.
That same energy and passion that we bring to the touchless industry is being unleashed onto the friction market with our ProTouch® line of in-bay automatic brush equipment.
PDQ Commitment to Security
PDQ takes safety and security very seriously, and we are dedicated to taking proactive measures to remediate any potential vulnerabilities, including educating our customers on how to protect their equipment. We strive to responsibly advise customers of mitigation measures and software updates to enhance the security of PDQ systems, and we work with the Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) on such announcements when appropriate.
While all internet-connected systems are potentially vulnerable to unauthorized access, there are ways to dramatically decrease risk. As a reminder for all sites with these machines installed, please make sure the following steps have been taken:
- Always make sure any PDQ equipment is not accessible from the Internet; it should be behind a secure firewall.
- On all machines, always change the default password to a unique, strong password.
- Always set up the system network (router or Wi-Fi) to require a username and password.
- Do not set up the site router with “port forwarding” enabled.
- Do not share passwords or write them down in an accessible place where others may find them.
- Always secure the machine controller in a locked area.
PDQ has always been recognized as the world-leading manufacturer of touchless car wash equipment, and we have an excellent safety record thanks to our team that is dedicated to thinking and working safely. We remain committed to providing our customers with safe, innovative and dependable cleaning systems with superior support, worldwide.
