Clark Brands, LLC Strengthens Its Data Security Partnership with ControlScan
Newly expanded partnership gives independent fuel retailers easy access to a stronger cybersecurity posture
ATLANTA, Aug 5, 2019 - ControlScan, a leader in managed security and compliance solutions that help secure IT networks and protect payment card data, has expanded its partnership with Clark Brands, LLC to offer managed firewall and PCI compliance services across its affiliated locations.
Clark Brands licenses both the Clark and Crown gasoline brands and is a trusted petroleum payment processing solution for over 900 independent petroleum marketers and retailers in 32 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Clark Brands and ControlScan have a long history of working together to deliver security and compliance services to the Clark, Crown and payment processing locations.
“The independent business model we support allows for flexibility in many ways,” said Stacey Yimet, CEO, Clark Brands. “Expanding our partnership with ControlScan helps mitigate cybersecurity risk by presenting a unified security and compliance solution that is easy and cost effective to implement.”
The ControlScan PaySafe UTM Firewall service and the PCI 1-2-3 managed compliance program work together to ensure that the retailer’s IT network is protected from the latest cyber threats and that payment card data is handled in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This is especially critical for fuel retailers because most locations have a retail store and a forecourt where payments are accepted.
“Fuel retailers’ IT networks present a unique challenge,” said Mark Carl, CEO, ControlScan. “The demands for speed, customer convenience and cybersecurity are converging, and these demands must be met wherever the customer is on-site.”
