Nuspire bought out by Georgia tech firm

ATLANTA, Ga.–The Commerce Township cybersecurity firm Nuspire has been purchased by the Atlanta, Ga. firm PDI Technologies, which provides technology services to the convenience retail and petroleum wholesale industries.

PDI officials said the acquisition was the first expansion by merger and acquisition for its PDI Security Solutions business since it was launched in 2020.

In addition to providing a wide range of cybersecurity services for convenience stores and gas stations, PDI helps to reduce network complexity and enhance security for quick-service restaurants, fast casual dining, and other restaurant and specialty retail locations.

“Over the last three and half years, we’ve been organically growing both our security offerings and our customer base as we secure the convenience retail ecosystem and beyond,” said Linnea Geiss, PDI COO. “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.”

Headquartered in Commerce Township, Nuspire has provided managed security services, managed detection and response, endpoint detection and response, and cybersecurity consulting for more than 25 years to automotive dealerships, manufacturers, and other businesses,

“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.”

“The automotive dealerships supported by Nuspire share similarities to the convenience retail and QSR industries already served by PDI,” added Chris Berry, president of security solutions for 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.”

PDI provides large-scale ERP and logistics installations, loyalty programs, and cybersecurity products and services, serving over 200,000 locations worldwide with solutions like the Fuel Rewards program and GasBuddy, two popular brands representing more than 30 million users. Visit the PDI Technologies website.
