Netsurion and POS Solutions Partner on Security and PCI Compliance

June 15, 2016

To protect restaurant, retail and hospitality merchants against cyberattacks, Netsurion, a leading provider of remotely-managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, has named POS Solutions a Gold Partner. The company will resell Netsurion’s Brand Guard services bundled with its own point of sale (POS) packages to give customers enterprise-level security for a fraction of the cost.
 
According to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, in the last year, small retail businesses with fewer than 1,000 employees accounted for 102 out of 159 confirmed industry breaches, and small hospitality companies accounted for 140 out of 362 in the accommodation sector.
 
By offering Netsurion merchant data security solutions, POS Solutions  will provide their customers with the level of network security required to gain PCI compliance and safely process transactions, offer secure Wi-Fi, and ultimately protect their customers and business.
 
To ensure POS Solutions’ customers receive the best in PCI compliance, Netsurion will offer its new reseller partner a Qualified Integrators & Resellers course. This course trains eligible professionals on the secure installation of Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS)-validated payment applications into merchant environments to facilitate PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) compliance.
 
“Nothing is more important to a business than keeping its customers’ payment card data secure. But becoming and staying PCI compliant is difficult and time consuming. Netsurion has been helping merchants since the inception of the standard through our affordable systems and services,” said Mark Cline, vice president of Channel Sales, Netsurion. “Plus, our managed firewall network allows control over outbound network traffic, preventing data from being sent to malicious sites and countries, as well as denying traffic requests containing other potential vulnerabilities. By partnering with POS Solutions, we have the opportunity to protect even more companies from the constant barrage of both internal and external cyberthreats.”
 
POS Solutions, located in Austin, Texas, has more than 30 years of experience in the POS business, providing installation, help desk and training services to its customers. Its knowledgeable staff dedicates its time to ensuring that their customers have access to the best combination of products available today.
 
“At POS Solutions, we believe that service is the cornerstone of any business. We have a staff of like- minded employees who have worked in the hospitality and retail industries. We empathize with and understand customer pain points and are here to help,” said Chad Edwards, director of operations, POS Solutions. “We’re excited to combine our expertise and 24x7x365 in-house and field services with Netsurion’s established security and compliance portfolio.”
 
The reseller partnership will officially launch July 6, 2016. To learn more, visit http://posstexas.com/about-us and www.netsurion.com.
