With the growing number of online threats, cybersecurity has become a full-time job. Unfortunately, many quick-service restaurants lack the in-house IT tools and expertise to guard against today’s advanced cyberthreats.

If restaurants are not actively preventing, detecting, and responding to security threats 24/7/365, they aren’t adequately protected. This is especially true for rapidly expanding franchises. So how can restaurants get the protection they need within their budget constraints?

Restaurants can offload their security burden with a managed endpoint protection service that scales as quickly as their businesses. The PDI Extended Detection and Response (XDR) service combines advanced protection tools with round-the-clock monitoring by cybersecurity experts.

PDI supplements restaurants’ own threat management efforts to prevent data breaches and business disruption. The company’s experts identify intrusions as they’re happening, so restaurants can extract them from their environment before they cause harm.

With PDI XDR services, restaurants get fully managed anti-virus, anti-malware, and firewall tools; robust event correlation across their IT environment—including the cloud; and proactive 24/7/365 monitoring and remediation.

Even if restaurants do have a dedicated IT security team, the sheer amount of device and network log messages can become overwhelming and cause legitimate threats to slip through the cracks. As part of the PDI XDR service, security analysts collect and analyze log events, freeing up IT staff to focus on their restaurants. Moreover, the PDI Security Operations Center (SOC) team is trained to keep restaurants running no matter what challenges arise.
