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 Canada.
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.
