Partnership Between Netsurion and Lucas Systems Provides Retailers with IT Security and Resilience

November 14, 2017

Netsurion, a leading provider of remotely-managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, today announced a strategic partnership with Lucas Systems, a full-service provider of information systems technology to quick-service, fast-casual, and retail establishments. This partnership will enhance Lucas Systems’ overall solutions offerings by bringing Netsurion’s network security and PCI compliance services to merchant businesses at an affordable and consistent monthly price they can plan for— improving protection for their establishment and their ability to readily integrate new digital experience technologies.

In today’s connected world, merchant businesses are scrambling to deploy a more digital experience for consumers, and the network is the backbone of this online transformation. Netsurion partners with POS and IT service providers, like Lucas Systems, to help merchants meet this challenge.

The partnership’s mission is to enable these businesses to not only protect themselves, their brand, and their customers, but to serve as a catalyst for growth, innovation, and competitive differentiation through optimizing the scalability, security, and performance of their networks.

Lucas Systems’ customers now have access to a comprehensive managed network security solution that combines enterprise-class network security with resilience from network attacks and disruptions. Its revolutionary managed threat detection and response (MTDR) component, SIEM-at-the-Edge, protects the frequently vulnerable edge locations of an enterprise, such as retail outlets, branch locations, and restaurants, from advanced persistent threats like ransomware.

Netsurion also gives Lucas Systems’ clients the tools to help meet the ever-changing requirements of PCI-DSS. Keeping customers’ payment card data secure should be top of mind, and adhering to PCI compliance is vital for all merchants that accept credit cards. However, becoming and staying compliant is difficult and time consuming. Netsurion has been helping merchants with PCI compliance since its inception, by providing affordable systems and services that help make compliance easy and efficient.

“Effective cybersecurity at the merchant level requires a collaborative effort by the merchant, the POS and IT provider, and the managed network security provider. Netsurion helps to ensure security remains intact,” said Brad Lucas, president of Lucas Systems. “We especially appreciate that Netsurion will continue to educate our clients in conjunction with our own security staff on PCI-DSS requirements, to protect all participants in the transaction – the consumer, the merchant, the brand, and third-party providers like ourselves.”
