"As a fully managed end-to-end network security management system, Network Protect does everything for the dealer by taking on the day-to-day responsibility of cyber threat defense, protecting dealer networks with 24/7 real-time security monitoring and management."
A complete security solution, Network Protect provides dealerships with security event visibility that helps meet industry compliance requirements, and includes log management, network monitoring and analysis. Driven by next generation SIEM and a highly skilled team of security engineers working around the clock, the Network Protect solution will provide the monitoring and diligence needed for compliance, real security and peace of mind.
"At Nuspire, we customize our services and technology to keep up with the evolving cyber security industry, and pride ourselves on our deep security knowledge, expertise and the state-of-the-science technology that we provide our customers," said Saylor Frase, CEO of Nuspire.
