SILICON SLOPES, UTAH (PRWEB) May 11, 2017
Whistic, a leading third-party security assessment platform, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. As a part of its membership, Whistic now supports the Cloud Security Alliance’s Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire on its platform.
“A significant portion of the security risks that our customers are assessing on Whistic are related to cloud security, which makes our membership with the Cloud Security Alliance a great strategic fit,” said Josh Mortensen, CEO of Whistic. “Our ability to offer the Cloud Security Alliance’s questionnaire in a streamlined, collaborative, online user experience will better allow our customers and their vendors to seamlessly complete and securely share their responses to a standard adopted by many of the world’s top cloud companies.”
Serving information security teams in the United States and Europe, the Whistic security assessment platform simplifies the end-to-end assessment process and delivers visibility into third-party security risk that has historically been trapped in static questionnaires. Whistic simplifies and automates the sending, receiving and scoring of security profiles against widely adopted standards or custom questionnaires at scale as a part of the growing trend toward greater scrutiny of third-party security. Whistic’s membership in the Cloud Security Alliance, as well as its support of other leading standards and widely accepted frameworks, reinforce the company’s focus on enhancing the tools that companies already trust in order to understand the security posture of their third-party relationships.
“We’re excited to welcome Whistic to the Cloud Security Alliance family and we look forward to benefitting from the growing awareness that they are bringing to the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire as a key tool for understanding the cloud security of vendors and partners.” Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance.
