On October 13, 2016 we announced our merger with managed security services Netsurion. As part of the agreement, Netsurion’s majority shareholder, Providence Strategic Growth, the equity affiliate of Providence Equity Partners, made an investment in EventTracker to accelerate growth for our combined company. Netsurion’s managed security services protect multi-location businesses’ information, payment systems, and on-premise public and private Wi-Fi networks from data breaches, data loss, and other risks posed by hackers.
We are thrilled to join with a dynamic and leading security organization to provide a managed network security service that couples our cutting-edge managed SIEM offering with a state-of-the-art managed firewall.
As the threat landscape evolves rapidly and hackers become more sophisticated, it’s become clear that comprehensive security solutions, like SIEM, are necessary to protect organizations from current and emerging threats and ensuring your brand is safe. However, many small and multi-location businesses cannot afford, and do not have the knowledge to manage such complex systems. Combining our cloud-based SIEM capabilities with Netsurion’s expertise in managed security services allows us to deliver SIEM to a class of businesses that previously was unable to afford and manage such sophisticated security measures. Now any sized branch or remote office, franchise, or sole proprietor operation can use Netsurion’s managed network security service or EventTracker’s SIEM services without the costs and complexity of full-time dedicated resources.
This transaction is only the beginning of a series of amazing new offerings we will be announcing in the coming months. We will soon be introducing a new product offering that will bring enterprise-level SIEM security down to the multi-location environment, as well as enhanced PCI-DSS compliance services, including a new FIM solution and PCI QSA consulting services.
