The Elastic Security Operations Center (Elastic SOC®) Brings Security Monitoring and Threat Detection to Point of Sale Systems and Terminals   Raleigh, NC — Today, Trusted Metrics Inc., an Information Security solutions company headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, announced a partnership with Raleigh-based Southern Coastal Solutions Inc., a POS Systems Distributor and Integrator.

Southern Coastal Chief Executive Officer, Jason Cummins said, “Cyber attacks are only getting worse, with new vulnerabilities being identified daily. Preventive measures are a necessary to be in place but shouldn’t be the only defense. Preventive measures...
