Datacap Systems Partners with Phoenix Managed Networks to Bring Simple and Affordable Network Security and Management Services to POS Dealers

Partnership Bolsters Security Offering for Datacap's Leading Integrated Payment Solutions

RESTON, Va., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Managed Networks, provider of PhoeniXSentry, an easily deployed and extremely affordable cloud-based network security and management service, today announced its newest channel partner, Datacap Systems, a provider of integrated payment solutions (middleware) for PC-based, Mobile and embedded Point of Sale (POS) systems. Through this partnership, Datacap Systems will offer PhoeniXSentry to its base of POS dealers and their merchant customers, providing a cloud-based network security service that delivers the same level of cyber security and data protection traditionally found only within large businesses.

As the incidence of network and POS data breaches continues to increase, more businesses, particularly small to mid-sized, are realizing the importance of comprehensive security measures. By partnering with Phoenix Managed Networks, Datacap Systems will provide its POS dealers with a recurring revenue and cross-selling opportunity and help them address this market need, giving merchants the peace of mind that comes when their business operations and customer data are protected.

"We see a great deal of value in providing this added security solution to our dealers who are increasingly hearing concern from merchants wanting to ensure their networks and sensitive data are secure and not at risk of being compromised," said Justin Zeigler, marketing director for Datacap Systems. "The network security and management service provided by PhoeniXSentry will give our POS dealers not only a new revenue center, but also a way to provide their customers with elite data protection at a fraction of the cost and complexity of traditional network security solutions."

PhoeniXSentry is a channel-ready managed network security service that is easy to sell, deploy and manage. PhoeniXSentry protects sensitive information – such as debit and credit card data, health information and other sensitive and personal data – on a 24/7/365 basis, without requiring any work on the part of the end user. As the world's first PCI DSS Level 1-certified network security service, PhoeniXSentry ensures all businesses under its protection meet their PCI DSS compliance requirements.

"We are thrilled to partner with Datacap Systems in bringing PhoeniXSentry to their dealers and in turn, merchants who have real concerns over data security," said Greg Grant, senior director of sales and business development for Phoenix Managed Networks. "By offering PhoeniXSentry alongside Datacap Systems' dependable integrated payment solutions, we are able to offer their dealers a complete solution that both generates revenue and provides merchants with a very strong security solution focused on the overall well being of their networks and sensitive data."

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
