Interface lands huge retail deal


Interface Security Systems has landed a huge deal where it will provide managed cloud services for 9,500 Dollar General stores—the entire retail store network. I wrote a story last month about Interface’s being certified as an “Advanced Managed Services Channel Partner by Cisco” which means that Cisco value-added resellers across the country would be introducing Interface to its customers.

Interface’s Secure Managed Cloud Services for Dollar General includes Wide-area Network Management, PCI Compliance, Wireless Access Management, IP Alarm System Monitoring, IP Video Surveillance, and Interface Digital Voice.

Interface’s Secure Managed Broadband, a wide-area network design has redundant, high-speed network connections for failover and business continuity.


“What Interface delivers for any single location or a large organization like Dollar General is the economy of vendor consolidation. Interface offers a single point for billing and support,” said Michael Shaw, CEO of Interface in a statement.

I’ll be interviewing Shaw and Robert Aranda, IP Division President of Interface, today, so I’ll have a story on the deal online soon.
