Netsurion Upgrades Managed Security Services Partner Program


Netsurion, an MSSP that provides remotely managed data and network security services, has incorporated advanced threat protection and 4G cellular-failover offerings into its partner program for point-of-sale (POS) resellers and retail technology providers.

Now, Netsurion partners can provide SIEM-at-the-Edge, the company's managed threat detection and response solution, to help enterprise customers protect vulnerable edge locations.

Netsurion also has implemented automatic cellular failover to detect network disruptions and switch traffic to 4G cellular, ensuring merchants can process transactions without the risk of downtime, the company stated.

SIEM-at-the-Edge and automatic cellular failover are now available for Netsurion partners to resell to their customers.

Netsurion and EventTracker Launch Free POS Ransomware Self-Assessment Tool

Netsurion and EventTracker, a log monitoring and security information and event management (SIEM) solutions provider, last month launched a free online app designed to help organizations evaluate their POS ransomware risk level.

The app, POS Ransomware Risk Self-Assessment, enables organizations to estimate how POS ransomware will impact their revenues and downtime, according to a prepared statement.

Also, POS Ransomware Risk Self-Assessment provides organizations with customized POS ransomware protection tips, Netsurion indicated.

Founded in 1989, Netsurion provides managed network security, PCI compliance and other cybersecurity solutions. Netsurion last year merged with EventTracker, and together, the companies blend SIEM capabilities with managed security services.
