ValeroPay+ Connection Service
Acumera has released the ValeroPay+ Connection Service! This workload enables secure payment transactions between your point of sale (POS) and the ValeroPay+ authorization servers. It’s available immediately for all Valero-branded sites.
Pre-activations by AcuVigil™ admins
AcuVigil users with the ‘Admin’ security role can now activate the MG™ Edge Security Device using the AcuVigil dashboard. Previously, this was limited to our NOC staff and those with the AcuVigil ‘Installer’ security role, but this new permission will allow admins to pre-activate MGs before your techs head to the sites. This can help you potentially configure the entire site network in advance.
As a friendly reminder, the newly released Acumera Tech™ app will also allow anyone with the AcuVigil role of ‘Admin’ or ‘Installer’ to activate MG Edge Security Devices. Find it in the Apple App Store or Google Play.

DHL phishing emails
In an interesting turn of events, DHL-branded emails have dethroned Microsoft as the most-used brand lure for phishing emails, even displacing giants such as Microsoft and Google. Bleeping Computer’s article recommends, “the best way to deal with incoming emails that make bold claims and request immediate action is to be cautious and avoid jumping into immediate action.”
KnowBe4 published a great article about the evolution of malware, which contains some pretty startling predictions about ransomware sophistication. According to the analysis, “ransomware gangs are beginning to evolve into multi-faceted, do anything attack gangs.”
Cyberthreat Defense Report
CyberEdge Group released its annual Cyberthreat Defense Report. Even if you don’t sign up, there is a great infographic that’s available to everyone. One of the concerning stats is that “86% of organizations suffered from a successful cyberattack last year.”
