PDI Technologies announced its acquisition of Nuspire, a managed security services provider (MSSP). This acquisition is the first expansion by M&A for the PDI Security Solutions business since the company launched its cybersecurity and managed network services segment in 2020.

“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, COO 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.”

Headquartered in Commerce, Michigan, Nuspire provides a broad range of solutions to automotive dealerships, manufacturing and other businesses. Key offerings include managed security services (MSS), managed detection and response (MDR), endpoint detection and response (EDR), 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, 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,” said Chris Berry, president, 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.”
