PDI, a worldwide provider of advanced software for the convenience retail and petroleum wholesale sectors has released significant advancements to its XDR services offering. The upgrades come after PDI’s acquisitions of Cybera and ControlScan, the formation of the PDI Security Solutions line of business, and the firm’s continuous integration of security aspects throughout its solution portfolio.

PDI XDR Complete is a totally managed cybersecurity solution that secures IT systems from emerging advanced threats by using extended detection and response capabilities. This agile monitoring service assists firms in detecting, preventing, and responding to cyberthreats, boosting security without using internal resources.

With the increasing number of cyberattacks, a threat to all sorts of organizations, particularly retailers with various locations and hybrid workforces, PDI is active in increasing awareness and assisting those firms in avoiding becoming another statistic. Unfortunately, recent high-profile ransomware attacks in recent months have exposed widespread flaws that can lead to greater exposure and commercial risk.

“Most organizations don’t have the internal cybersecurity resources to adequately protect their IT systems and data. With the increased threat of ransomware and other advanced cyberthreats, they’re now looking for vendors who can deliver comprehensive solutions such as PDI’s managed XDR for C-store businesses. The ability to proactively monitor, detect, and respond to threats is critical to business success,” said Chris Kissel, Research Director of Security and Trust Products at IDC.

“We’ve seen the impact ransomware can have on other C-Stores. Our focus is on keeping our stores operational 24/7. We do not have the time or IT staff to keep up with the constantly evolving cyberthreats. PDI does a fantastic job of providing the tools and expertise to protect our headquarters and 38 stores. They’re watching our backs around the clock to make sure our data and customers are safe,” Nate Morgan, IT Manager at Pride Stores. He is PDI customer for over five years.

“Faced with today’s sophisticated cyberthreats, you must be able to detect threats immediately and take action before they impact your business. State-of-the art services such as XDR Complete feature 24/7/365 monitoring and leading-edge cybersecurity tools backed by a team of expertly trained professionals. The XDR enhancements are available today as part of our comprehensive family of fully managed security services offerings,” said Mark Carl, Chief Security Officer of PDI Security Solutions.
