Duluth, GA (PRWEB) June 09, 2011
CompliancePoint, a PossibleNOW company, announces that it has completed the acquisition of Atlanta-based InfoSec Integrators, Inc. The company’s principals, Charles Burke and Bill Schmidt, will help lead CompliancePoint’s Information Security practice group which provides a wide range of technology solutions, information security, and risk management consulting services including payment card industry (PCI) certifications. InfoSec Integrator’s team of technical resources will be used to augment CompliancePoint consulting engagements.
“The addition of InfoSec Integrators strengthens our capabilities and expands our service offerings” says Scott Frey, President & CEO of PossibleNOW. “Charles and Bill and their technical team have extensive experience in the technology and information security field. The ability to access a nationwide network of technical resources enables us to adequately staff consulting or remediation engagements of any size.”
Included in the acquisition is the software application developed by InfoSec Integrators that is used to search a company’s infrastructure for personally identifiable information such as social security numbers, and help ensure that the data is stored properly and securely. The application is an essential component in ensuring data security and compliance with regulations such as HIPAA and PCI.
“The growing popularity of cloud computing and the increased use of outsourcing creates new difficulties in data and network security,” explains Schmidt. “Companies today face the challenges of complying with complex regulations as well as protecting their networks and data from both external and internal threats. InfoSec Integrators has worked with companies of all sizes, including many multi-national retail giants, to assist them in implementing sound security measures and integrating technology that minimizes data and business risk. We are excited to bring our expertise to the CompliancePoint team.”
