NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) July 6, 2006
ShoreGroup, Inc., a premier systems management solutions and IT professional services firm, today announced the formation of an Information Security & Compliance Services practice. This multi-faceted practice will build upon ShoreGroup’s current security offerings to provide assessments and consulting, an expanded array of software and hardware solutions, audits, and validation supporting the most demanding customer security and compliance requirements. The practice will also further advance ShoreGroup’s CaseSentry application in the realm of security and compliance. Leveraging CaseSentry’s proven systems management and workflow automation architecture, with event correlation and trend analysis to provide integrated policy-based security management capabilities from within a unified workgroup portal, will provide clients with unmatched insight into the state of both operations and security of their converged network.
"We currently leverage ShoreGroup's CaseSentry Change Management solution as an integral component of our Sarbanes-Oxley compliance initiatives,” stated Kenneth Corriveau, Chief Information Officer at Omnicom Media Group, a leading global full-service media planning and buying company. “Not only did CaseSentry allow us to quickly streamline and automate our change management processes, but the solution also helped us enhance focal competencies within our IT operations and security departments. CaseSentry's ability to converge systems management, change management, security and compliance will undoubtedly demonstrate substantial value to organizations by lowering the risk of regulatory violations and security breaches while maintaining customer confidence.”
“Organizations today are increasingly faced with industry and governmental regulations regarding network security and data privacy. Penalties for non-compliance can be staggering and the amount of work and time necessitated by IT groups to document and prove compliance is monumental,” said Robert Ditta, Executive Vice President of ShoreGroup. “We will consult with our customers to redefine and implement the applicable best practices for their specific compliance and security needs.”
“At a high level, security managers, compliance officers and systems administrators are faced with researching technological solutions designed to secure digital assets, guard against monetary fraud, permit pro-active threat identification, and manage network operations while enforcing compliance with governmental regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and PCI,” said Bob McDermott, ShoreGroup’s Vice President of Convergence. “This is a daunting task to accomplish considering the ever-changing landscape of security threats, the new security solutions that are continually entering the marketplace, general confusion over regulatory requirements, and the specialized security expertise that is required to address this constantly evolving challenge. ShoreGroup’s services and CaseSentry management solution are focused on optimizing our client’s overall security strategy and eliminating the uncertainty regarding its effectiveness and compliance status,” added McDermott.
ShoreGroup's expanded compliance consulting focus adds upon its rich portfolio of services which already includes CaseSentry management and workflow applications, ShorePatrol Operational Support Services, VoIP, converged networks, wireless, IP Telephony, IP contact center, intelligent building networks, security, LAN/WAN and structured cabling design. ShoreGroup's services are tailored to the client's precise needs and are completely flexible, ranging from problem-focused initiatives that target specific areas of concern to an end-to-end strategic assessment of the overall operations.
