Share Article

The partnership between ControlScan and Lucas Systems, Inc. brings reliable, cost-effective managed security and information technology solutions to quick-service restaurants.

Quick-service and fast-casual restaurants are plagued by data security issues within their information networks and at the point of sale (POS). This critical business concern threatens restaurant owners’ peace of mind, because they know a breach of cardholder or other sensitive data can cost them their reputation, necessary operating capital and even time in court.

ControlScan and Lucas Systems, Inc. are partnering to offer cost-effective, customizable solutions and comprehensive support to remove the ongoing burden of restaurant data security and IT oversight. With these core business challenges out of the way, restaurant owners and franchisees can focus on their primary revenue-generating activities.

An expert provider of data security and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance solutions for small- and mid-sized businesses, ControlScan safeguards the overall network environment with managed security services that fit the unique needs of the business being served. Through their partnership, ControlScan and Lucas will function as “transparent extensions” to each other, working side-by-side to implement and maintain secure, PCI-compliant restaurant information systems, as well as POS technology that is Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) compliant.

“Lucas is known for its solid history and expertise in restaurant information systems and POS technology,” said Joan Herbig, CEO, ControlScan. “Our managed security solutions, which include specialized reporting and support services, complement the POS technology and overall network support Lucas already provides, promising our joint clients long-standing reliability and lowered operational costs.”

“Our partnership with ControlScan creates a business advantage for our clients by making data security integral to not only their payment networks, but their business operation as a whole,” said Lee Lucas, Owner, Lucas Systems, Inc. “And this is not a one-time thing; when a store needs to add components to its technology network, the owner can be assured that the entire operation is still secure and in compliance.”
