WINNIPEG, Jan. 25, 2012 /CNW/ - Seccuris and SaskTel announced today a
partnership to develop an Information Assurance Portal (IAP) which will
provide a comprehensive set of information security services to small
and mid-enterprise business customers in Saskatchewan, and across
Leveraging Seccuris' information security intellectual property and
SaskTel's world-class infrastructure services, early releases of the
IAP will include Threat Monitoring services, Vulnerability Management
services, and Risk Based Asset Database and Reporting services,
delivered through a self-service process. The IAP will provide
customers greater visibility and control over their IT security
environments and address security concerns in a more cost effective and
scalable manner than is available in the market today. The IAP provides
a unique risk-based performance management system that fulfills
executive, management, and technical audience requirements.
"SaskTel and Seccuris have developed a strong relationship over the past
three years. This partnership to develop the IAP is a natural evolution
of our relationship and provides a good business opportunity for
SaskTel. Integrating information security services with our own suite
of network services provides excellent value for our customers", says Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO.
Development activities for the IAP have begun, using a joint development
team led by Seccuris. The first release of the IAP, targeted for fall
2012, will provide threat monitoring and notification services.
Subsequent releases will include new services such as on demand
vulnerability management services, risk based information asset
management, and business threat and risk assessment services.
"The strength of our partnership with SaskTel, and the combination of
our intellectual property and their tier one facilities, provided us
with an excellent opportunity to develop a unique way of delivering
information security services to a broader market. The IAP will lead to
business growth for both SaskTel and Seccuris, enabling both
organizations to increase our markets and achieve our strategic
objectives", says Geoff Besko, President and CEO of Seccuris.
