DUBLIN, IRELAND – January 6th, 2021 – Sysnet Global Solutions, a leading provider of cyber security and compliance solutions, today announces that it has acquired NuArx, Inc. to further enhance Sysnet’s technology platform and accelerate its market expansion. NuArx, Inc. is a market-leading provider of PCI compliance, managed security and digital transformation solutions for the restaurant, convenience, grocery and retail industries throughout North America, and is headquartered in Southfield, MI.
The acquisition comes at a time when cyber-criminal activity is increasing drastically, significantly impacting businesses of all sizes. Recent reports show that COVID-19 has provided opportunities for cyber criminals to increase activity and innovation, a secular trend that threatens the stability and business continuity of many organizations. The addition of NuArx brings extensive compliance and security expertise for protecting the digital interactions of businesses and their customers. With over 4 million merchants and payment processors now in the Sysnet organization, Sysnet has taken the lead in delivering cyber security and compliance solutions to organizations worldwide.
NuArx’s SecurePCI® platform delivers integrated managed security and PCI compliance solutions. The platform has fueled NuArx’s rapid growth with major brands throughout North America.
“The acquisition of NuArx by Sysnet is part of Sysnet’s growth strategy and helps position Sysnet at the forefront of security and compliance. As organizations continue to strain under the ever-increasing onslaught of cyber-attacks, scalable cyber security platforms are needed so merchants of all sizes and locations can address emerging threats, while also achieving and meeting critical compliance mandates. NuArx bolsters Sysnet’s cyber security and compliance solutions and plays a critical role in helping our customers meet ever-increasing threats.”
The NuArx acquisition follows Sysnet’s recent acquisitions of the Managed Compliance Solutions (MCS) division of ControlScan and Viking Cloud. The combination of four cyber security powerhouses – Sysnet, NuArx, Viking Cloud, and ControlScan – creates a scalable platform for next-generation cyber defense with security consulting services delivered by the industry’s leading experts.
“The NuArx team is very excited to join Sysnet Global Solutions. Combining our teams, expertise and technology platforms is a big win for our customers, delivering a broader range of services and cutting-edge solutions with the same innovative culture and commitment to customer success.”
The Sysnet team was assisted in the transaction by Willkie Farr & Gallagher.
