Network Security
Acumera Logo

Network Security

Complete managed secuirty platform to predict, prevent, detect, and respond to threats across your entire business. Our security operations center (SOC) analyzes over 6 billion logs every day.

Point-of-Sale Security

Point-ofSale (POS) systems need to be secure, always-on, and compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). A system that does not protect the cardholder data environment (CDE) is vulnerable to advanced and persistent threats. Typical credit card malware must successfully persist on a network for months, while a ransomware attack needs only minutes to complete the mission. Deploying a ransomware attack that shuts down the POS system can effectively hold a business hostage, bringing revenue to a screeching halt.
