igxglobal and Critical Watch have Partnered to Offer Vulnerability Management, PCI and integration with Intrustion Prevention

igxglobal, a recognized information technology integrator of performance and security based IT solutions announces their alliance with Critical Watch, a leading provider of security, risk and compliance management solutions.

Critical Watch's FusionVM is an award winning, patented product that automates vulnerability management and security configuration assessment so that policy compliance is sustained and critical systems are secured. FusionVM not only delivers vulnerability assessment technology spanning network devices, Web applications and databases but also streamlines back-end process steps needed to scale and execute security, risk and compliance management across multiple internal groups and audiences with varying levels of access. Delivered as a Software-as-a-Service or an appliance, and in a virtual form for consultants, FusionVM will extend igxglobal's security and risk management service capabilities and network security solutions offerings.

"igxglobal will continue to identify and provide additional value added services to our clients. We are excited about the opportunity to present the Critical Watch offerings to our customers and to be able to enhance our current portfolio of technologies and services," said Media Landry, Vice President of Sales and Partner Relations of igxglobal.

As an additional value add of the Critical Watch partnership, FusionVM offers an integration module with leading the leading Intrusion Prevention System provider, TippingPoint. This solution establishes a complete process for interconnecting the IPS and vulnerability management functionality. Specifically, the integrated solution enables companies to quickly identify network vulnerabilities within their unique environment, compare those to current IPS settings and make adjustments to those settings to ensure protection of the vulnerable hosts. As a security integrator of both FusionVM and TippingPoint IPS, igxglobal is positioned to offer this leading edge integrated solution to its customer base.
