Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Seccuris Inc., the North American leader in security consulting and managed services, announced it has partnered with iScan Online, Inc., a data breach prevention platform provider that enables organizations to proactively identify devices at risk before a data breach occurs. This partnership provides Seccuris with the ability to conduct comprehensive scanning for a client’s entire environment.
According to a recent survey, data breaches spiked to record levels in 2013. Many were avoidable, but organizations just didn't have the right security controls in place. Working with the iScan Online Data Breach Prevention Platform, Seccuris can help organizations understand their potential risk and liability exposure to a data breach event by delivering a comprehensive view of the unprotected sensitive data across Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, and Apple iOS devices, as well as the security threats that exist and can ultimately lead to exploitation by attackers.
This strategic alliance enables Seccuris to provide even deeper security solutions to its clients. Seccuris now has the ability to conduct comprehensive scanning for each client’s entire environment versus only a sampling or subset. This makes vulnerability assessments 100% inclusive of workstations, mobile devices, servers, and other network appliances, which dramatically increases the ability to identify unacceptable risks. Seccuris can then work with the client to determine the exact security program they need to safeguard their network and company.
"This partnership is a perfect alignment to Seccuris's commitment to continuously deliver superior protection for our clients," said Patrick Hayes, Managing Director for Seccuris. "Given the ability to perform faster, more comprehensive data discovery using iScan Online, we’re able to dramatically increase sample sizes and visibility to critical issues within our clients’ environments. This means greater assurance when working towards closing security gaps and maintaining compliance."
“We are proud to partner with Seccuris,” added iScan Online president, Billy Austin. “Today, it is more than credit card data at risk; it is intellectual property, personal identifiable information and trade secrets. This partnership enables customers to immediately act upon their risk exposure before a data breach occurs. Simply put, discovering sensitive data and detecting security threats can now be delivered as a managed service.”
The new threat and risk scanning service will be part of the Vulnerability Assessment services offered through Seccuris’s OneStone™ Information Assurance Portal. Backed by a team of security professionals and analysts in the company’s 24-hour Security Operations Center, OneStone offers constant and reliable threat and vulnerability management, business risk assessments, and asset classification and tracking through a cost-effective cloud-based service that’s easy to deploy and provides immediate benefits.
