San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2007
ComSec, Inc. releases a free heatmap allowing organizations to evaluate the security of SAAS vendors. As organizations seek to leverage SAAS for optimization and cost reduction it is imperative they ensure the vendors are secure. The heatmap graphically depicts the overall security posture of vendors- this allows for the business to align with vendors who they can trust.
Software As A Service provides customers the ability to minimize the up-front costs of software acquisition. SAAS is also utilized to enhance the disaster recovery and business continuity processes as most SAAS vendors have redundant infrastructures. It is critical that these vendors and service providers maintain a quality information security program. When the data may be used by competitors, or contains sensitive information, the organization must demonstrate due diligence when engaging SAAS offerings.
"Organizations need a standardized and comprehensive way to assess the vendors providing SAAS solutions. Consistent and repeatable reviews are necessary to ensure quality control over all SAAS vendors," said Jeromie Jackson, President & CEO of ComSec. Simple, graphical, and free- the heatmap delivers quality data enabling executives to make prudent decisions. It can be downloaded from http://www.comsecinc.com/heatmap_request.php
