Netsurion Announces Strategic Partnership with Member Services Organization VGM Client Rewards

October 12, 2017

Netsurion, a leading provider of remotely-managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, today announced a strategic partnership with VGM Client Rewards, a member services organization that helps its members, merchants in the restaurant industry, save on various supplies, equipment, and technology to optimize their businesses and cybersecurity. Netsurion will be the exclusive provider of network security and compliance services—and is already in use by one of VGM’s largest members, Tropical Smoothie Café.

The restaurant industry has seen an explosion in the demand for digital customer experiences ranging from mobile POS and tableside tablets to digital menu boards and self-serve kiosks. With customers demanding more digital experience integration, the merchant’s heavily leveraged IT network can become overburdened and face increased risk of lost revenue due to data breach or simply degraded performance.

Netsurion gives merchants the necessary network security, resilience, and compliance to ensure these technologies can be successfully and safely deployed, so restaurants can innovate and grow their businesses. Its revolutionary managed threat detection and response (MTDR) solution, 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 and VGM Client Rewards both have a tremendous focus on delivering value to the restaurant industry, making this partnership a natural fit that will give merchants access to powerful cybersecurity solutions typically leveraged only by organizations that have dedicated IT security staff,” said Jill Rosenhouse, VGM’s vice president of marketing. “Our hope is that merchants will take advantage of this to better protect their business, their customers, and their brand reputation as restaurant data breaches continue to hit the headlines.”
