Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 16, 2005 -
Â Vigilar, Inc., the leading information security consulting firm, announced today that for the second consecutive month its new deal numbers have increased more than 40% over the previous month. The new clients engaged Vigilar for consulting services, implementations of new products from VigilarÂs partners, and information security training. The total number of Vigilar deals gained in May, which combines new and existing client cross-sales, increased 16% over April 2005 and 126% over May 2004.
Pam Sanders, VigilarÂs Vice President of Marketing, said, ÂThe information security space is extremely dynamic. It used to be that organizations would come to Vigilar after an information security breach had already occurred or if a compliance deadline was looming, and they were looking for quick fixes to address their issues. But more recently there has been a definite increase in organizations coming to us proactively searching for new technologies and services that help maintain organization-wide optimal security postures.
ÂOver the past several months we have seen several trends emerge in our clientÂs buying habits,Â continued Sanders. ÂA majority of our clients have come to us for help with establishing end-to-end network security, including a good amount of interest in utilizing intrusion prevention technology. We also see a ramp-up in organizations looking for better protection against spam, viruses, phishing, and other email threats. In addition, we have noticed a growing demand for our compliance services, especially with regard to the PCI Data Standard, which has a rapidly approaching June 30th deadline. And in light of recent news events where employees have contributed knowingly or not to significant data theft, we have noted a budding interest in social engineering, which is a service that focuses on the critical human component of organization-wide information security. The multitude of products and services we provide our customers is a testament to VigilarÂs dedication to meet all of our clientÂs diverse security needs regardless of their requirements.Â
