Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee Makes Network Security a Top Priority

SecureConnect was chosen for their ability to secure even the most complex of infrastructures

Minneapolis, MN, March 18, 2011 --(PR.com)-- As one of the fastest growing restaurants in the country, Buffalo Wild Wings has found significant value in the SecureConnect solution, which addresses the needs of its complex network environment. As a result, the grill and bar chain has selected SecureConnect as a preferred PCI compliance and network security provider to protect and secure its locations.

Due to its sit-down restaurant atmosphere and variety of electronics and registers, Buffalo Wild Wings has an extensive environment that requires a thorough understanding of security and compliance. As a result, Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc., a Buffalo Wild Wings franchisee and owner/operator of Bagger Dave’s Legendary Burger Tavern, turned to a network security and PCI compliance provider to guide them throughout the process.

“One of the biggest challenges I faced with compliance was understanding what it was and why we needed it,” said Ioana Ben-Ezra, Corporate Controller at Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. “SecureConnect made it a flawless transition with their knowledge, coordination, and dedication to customers.” After looking at several options, Ben-Ezra soon discovered that SecureConnect also offered more features and services that would get the company closer to compliance than any other competitor.

“We ended up looking at three or four different vendors but we wanted a company that could bundle services,” she said. “That was the most appealing feature of SecureConnect’s solution.” Essential services provided to the Buffalo Wild Wings franchisee include a fully managed firewall, centralized logging and reporting, 24x7x365 monitoring and support, quarterly external and internal vulnerability scanning, comprehensive endpoint protection, wireless IPS, SAQ Assistance, and a $100,000 Breach Protection Program that is double the industry average.

“SecureConnect is a solid company and solution,” said Ben-ezra. “Once I made the decision to become compliant, SecureConnect made everything easy for me and my team. “ For a growing company, like Buffalo Wild Wings, SecureConnect has proved to be an asset in establishing compliance and maintaining proper security initiatives for many of its franchisees.
