ConvergeSecure™ can also assist organizations subject to compliance regulations pertaining to Unified Threat Management including Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, HIPAA, FISMA, and PCI.
"It was the next step in the logical progression of our brand and portfolio of services," said CCC Technologies' President and CEO, Vincent Willas. "We discovered the growing need in the market by speaking with our embedded client base. Some of our premier customers voiced pain points in dealing with several different vendors and software platforms for their security needs."
CCC Technologies began development of ConvergeSecure™ in 2007, taking more than a year to methodically build and test the service, ensuring the staff was fully certified and prepared to support clients. CCC first implemented ConvergeSecure™ in its own high traffic environment to test and measure the success of the service.
"With our core focus and background in what is considered the most mission critical application, voice communications, we felt very comfortable and capable with our ability to design, implement, and support a managed security service offering," explained Juan Rodriguez, CCC's Vice President of Operations. "It goes without saying that security is about trust, not only in the product, but also in the provider. There is no way we would jeopardize our customers' operations or their trust in us to rush to market. That is why it took over a year to develop and test ConvergeSecure™."
Throughout 2008 CCC has made the necessary improvements and upgrades to existing infrastructure and staff in anticipation of the launch of ConvergeSecure™. This included industry certifications for dedicated staff and improvements to the existing Customer Support Unit and Customer Care Center for deployment of the new state-of-the-art Security Operations Center (SOC). This new SOC is responsible for 24x7x365 monitoring and support for ConvergeSecure™ customers, including remote support, programming changes, and monthly monitoring reports.
