In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

1. Optimized for multi-location retailers. Netsurion has built a solution that fills a gap in the marketplace with an all-in-one platform and service that is resilient and affordable. Retailers with Point-of-Sale (POS) systems no longer need to patch single point solutions to do routing, firewalling, Wi-Fi, and cellular failover at each location. Redundant or unneeded hardware and software are removed, and configurations standardized. With so much emphasis now on internet ordering and delivery apps, scalable solutions, and cellular failover from Netsurion is business critical. We also reduce business risk and enable compliance expertise with PCI DSS tools and specialist support.

2. Agile to marketplace changes and customer requirements. Competitive pressures have never been higher for specialty retail and restaurant operators. Unlike many of other vendors, Netsurion has its own proprietary technology for multi-location businesses like restaurants and retail stores. We have the flexibility to respond quickly to customer requirements such as digital transformation for retailers due to the Covid pandemic to thrive and not just survive in these uncertain times. A Zero-trust approach across the organization ensures defense-in-depth capabilities. Streamlining technology and processes is vital to reduce vendor sprawl and complexity. In addition, Netsurion is also ranked as a Top 25 provider by MSSP Alert.

3. Next-level cybersecurity protection. Firewalls are a necessary but basic security control – not enough to safeguard against today’s stealthy cyber attacks. Adversaries seek to compromise payment data and privileged login credentials that enable cyber criminals to access sensitive infrastructure and information. Netsurion provides its enterprise-grade managed threat protection platform, EventTracker™, that includes endpoint detection and response (EDR) and a 24/7 security operations center (SOC). We simplify cybersecurity with an all-in-one approach that is resilient, agile, and increases compliance with a customized approach for retail and hospitality organizations.

Brief Overview

Retail store IT networks have become cluttered, costly, and inefficient. At the same time, retail brands are under pressure to innovate the in-store experience while also reducing technology-related costs. The retail industry is also a key target for financially-motivated cyber criminals and Point of Sale (POS) attackers. Netsurion® enables retailers to do just that. Netsurion Secure Edge Networking is your launchpad for retail digital transformation. We deliver an affordable all-in-one retail solution for secure and reliable networking, rapid deployment, advanced threat protection, and PCI DSS compliance. Netsurion is powering secure and agile networks for nearly 20,000 retail, restaurant, and hospitality locations, allowing their IT staff to focus on driving guest innovation and marketplace changes.

Retail challenges we address:
• Reliable and always-on connectivity
• Better retail experience for customers
• Operational efficiency
• Rapid response to business-critical events
• Keep up with compliance mandates like PCI DSS

Retailers previously had two choices: overspend on enterprise hardware that often goes underutilized due to complexity and a lack of expertise or use consumer-grade technology that creates cybersecurity and compliance gaps that attackers can exploit with advanced threats like ransomware. Netsurion provides retail branches with a “branch networking-in-a-box” solution that provides agility, scalability, resiliency, and above all, cost effectiveness.
