PDI Technologies, a convenience retail technology company based in Alpharetta, Georgia, is acquiring Nuspire, a managed security services provider.

Nuspire is based in Commerce, Michigan, and has worked with automotive dealerships, manufacturing and other businesses for 25 years.

“The automotive dealerships supported by Nuspire share similarities to the convenience retail and QSR industries already served by PDI,” said Chris Berry, president of security solutions at PDI Technologies. “Both are fast-paced, high-volume and complex connected environments across distributed networks where system reliability, customer satisfaction and data security are paramount—and where vulnerabilities are abundant. As we work to integrate PDI and Nuspire, we will begin offering additional services to both customer bases, including bringing a much-needed cybersecurity consulting practice to convenience retailers.”

Nuspire provides managed security services, managed detection and response, endpoint detection and response and cybersecurity consulting capabilities such as incident preparedness, threat modeling and executive advisory services.

“From ransomware attacks to data breaches, phishing attempts and more, there are nonstop cyberthreats to businesses of every type, size, and maturity,” said Lewie Dunsworth, CEO of Nuspire. “As we become a part of PDI, our teams will be able to deliver and scale even more powerful security technologies that allow current and future customers to thrive within an evolving threat landscape.”

PDI has been growing its security offerings over the last three and a half years, said Linnea Geiss, chief operating officer at PDI Technologies.

“Nuspire has been committed to innovation and service in adjacent industries, and we are thrilled to welcome their skilled team, robust capabilities and distinguished portfolio to PDI. We look forward to growing and diversifying our roadmap and business together.”
