Acumera Wins Clark and Crown

Austin-based network management provider Acumera said today that it has been selected by gasoline retailer brand Clark and Crown. According to Acumera, it will provide managed network security services to Clark Brands, which licenses the Clark and Crown gasoline brand to more than 1,100 petroleum retailers and fuel stations nationwide. Financial impact of the deal was not disclosed. Acumera said it will provide its own, branded network security devices and services to locations, to handle security of credit card transactions via the Internet. The company's hardware is used to protect from unauthorized access to card data so that those stores can more easily meet payment card industry (PCI-DSS) standards.
