AUSTIN, TX, APRIL 22, 2020 — Yesway, the country’s fastest-growing convenience store chain, has partnered with Acumera to deliver an end-to-end PCI compliant solution that will fully secure its POS systems and entire store digital estate. Yesway also gains access to a large suite of Acumera apps that provide advanced security, remote access, store-wide monitoring, and analytics, supported by Acumera’s unmatched 24x7x365 network operations center and its compliance tools.
“Acumera’s technology, services, and team have become an extension of our IT department,” said Doug New, Chief Technology Officer of Yesway. “They are able to alleviate much of the compliance burden through their PCI tools, whole-store network management, and cloud-based dashboard.”
Acumera, an industry-leading managed network service provider (MNSP), will provide Yesway stores with proactive network support, outage detection, and port-level visibility of all network devices through Acumera’s proprietary AcuVigil™ Dashboard. In addition, Acumera will be deploying its catalog of security, monitoring, analytics, and PCI compliance tools. Acumera’s app-based architecture will be instrumental in reducing the number of third-party connections and devices at Yesway stores.
Acumera’s Chairman and CEO, William Morrow, stated, “forward-thinking businesses like Yesway are a pleasure to work for, as they leverage Acumera’s full suite of services offered by our patent-protected technology. Our team is proud to serve Yesway and is dedicated to their success.”
Acumera’s new AcuLink Endpoint™ app will enable Yesway staff and third-party technicians to remotely connect to the POS, plus endpoint devices like ATGs and DVRs, in a manner that meets PCI requirements 12.3.8 and 12.3.9. This will protect network devices, increase operational efficiencies, reduce tech visits and expenses, and lead to faster problem resolution to keep stores up and running.
Acumera, a Verifone and Gilbarco certified MNSP, is the most comprehensive and safest choice for network connectivity, security, visibility, and compliant remote access. Acumera is listed on the Visa and MasterCard Global Registries of PCI compliant service providers.
