LEXINGTON, KY (PRWEB) April 30, 2005
IntraSource, Inc. a Kentucky based Information Technology firm providing business solutions and professional IT Services has expanded its BusinessNET Managed Service offerings to include a new Managed Security Service.
In addition to providing their traditional Business Email Content Security and Remote Network Monitoring services, IntraSource will now be able to offer an expanded suite of outsourced professional services to help protect the security and confidentiality of their customers' data networks based on a strategic business relationship established with ProtectPoint Security.
In acknowledging that the primary factor contributing to IntraSourceÂs new security solution offering was the Âevolving regulatory compliance requirementsÂ relating to data security created by HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, David Reedy, President of IntraSource said, Âthis was also a determining factor in our decision to partner with ProtectPoint SecurityÂ.
ÂAlthough we have been providing comprehensive security solutions and services including managed firewalls for our customers for many years, the seriousness of these regulatory compliance requirements combined with the growing incidence of cyber crime convinced us that partnering with the security professionals at ProtectPoint was the right business decision to help our clientsÂ, added Reedy.
With new security vulnerabilities identified each week, the challenge has gone far beyond just installing a firewall or DMZ. For many companies a 7x24 Managed Intrusion Detection and Prevention service is needed to help protect the security and confidentiality of their data, as well as their customers' non-public personal information.
ÂProtectPoint will provide us with advanced security tools and a level of collective security expertise to assist our clients much more cost-effectively than we could have developed totally in-houseÂ stated Reedy. ÂBesides, those guyÂs at ProtectPoint Security are real Security Geeks, and weÂre glad to have them backing us up around-the-clockÂ.
Steve Harris, CEO for ProtectPoint, added, "IntraSource is a quality organization, and we embrace the opportunity to provide premier managed security support for their clients. By leveraging our security professionals and 24/7 Managed Security Monitoring with IntraSourceÂs established security solutions, clients can now be offered an extremely comprehensive and complete Managed Security Suite. We look forward to a successful and long-term business relationship."
