Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 16, 2005
Organizations are constantly at risk from hackers, intruders, and malicious programs whose tactics are rapidly evolving. To further protect organizations against these attacks, Vigilar, a leading information security consulting firm, today introduced HackerProtect™. HackerProtect is a comprehensive security program that gives a holistic view to threats that face an organization and then closes the loop through recommendations, ensuring that an optimal security posture is established.
Through the HackerProtect program, Vigilar develops and implements for organizations a unique, extensive operational program that specifies and executes assessments periodically over time, performs appropriate audits and identifies remediation plans for assets exposed externally. As a part of HackerProtect’s annual continuous program, Vigilar’s customers’ certified assets are insured 100% against intrusions.
Palaniswamy (Raj) Rajan, Vigilar’s President and CEO, commented, “In today’s multifaceted risk environment, up to the minute security protection is primary for every organization to maintain its optimal security posture. With HackerProtect, our clients get relevant security recommendations based on a combination of business objectives and risk criticality and immediate security expert access at a moment’s notice. But the most tangible aspect to HackerProtect is its insurance guarantee: Any certified asset that is breeched is ensured for up to $20,000 per incident. This is another example of how Vigilar is truly a trusted partner in information security for our clients.”
Vigilar insures that firewalls, DMZ devices, critical web servers and applications, database servers, IDS/IPS devices are protected from any kind of external attack and penetration.
