VendorSafe Technologies, a leading provider of cloud-managed IT security services, announced today that it has changed its name to Netsurion. The company is introducing a new logo and brand identity that more effectively communicate the company's solutions for a greatly expanding market.

"Our new name better communicates what we do and the promise we make to keep our customers' networks and Internet access safe and secure," said Kevin Watson, CEO of Netsurion. "The new identity supports our overarching growth initiative. Our market opportunity is expanding rapidly, driven by higher data breach risks, along with growing awareness and concern for the security of data in the small business community."

Netsurion's cloud-managed firewalls protect small- and medium-sized businesses' information, payment systems and on-premise public and private Wi-Fi networks from data breaches and other risks posed by hackers. With more than 80 percent of breach attacks targeting small businesses, any branch office, franchise or sole proprietor operation can use Netsurion to protect against cyberthreats and achieve peace of mind. Netsurion's technology simplifies the implementation of IT security, making it easy for any-size office or operation to have enterprise class security without the cost of sending an IT specialist onsite.

Netsurion has already achieved a leadership position helping retailers, quick serve restaurants and grocers protect their information and POS systems, maintain compliance with credit card industry regulations including the new PCI 3.0 standards, and effectively eliminate the burden of managing their network and on-premise Wi-Fi security.

Now, the company is preparing to expand its U.S. operations into related branch office/remote office-oriented markets such as hospitality, healthcare, legal and insurance.

The new identity is the latest in a series of growth-oriented moves after Providence Equity Partners became the company's majority shareholder in November 2014. With $40 billion in managed fund commitments, Providence is the leading global private equity firm focused on media, communications, education and information investments.
