Manage and Mitigate
Risk via Proactive Security Testing Services
STERLING, VA & BOSTON, MA – July 8, 2010 – Security consulting services experts Intekras and Core Security Technologies, the market’s leading provider of IT security testing solutions, today announced that they have extended their existing business relationship via the launch of a formal value added reseller agreement through which Intekras will market and support Core’s award-winning line of automated security testing and measurement solutions.
Under the relationship, Intekras, which specializes in providing highly integrated security services built around market-leading technologies, will offer its many government and private sector clients Core Security’s flagship penetration testing solution, CORE IMPACT® Pro, as well as its newly introduced security testing and measurement solution, CORE INSIGHT Enterprise™, along with a package of services surrounding the products to help organizations more effectively identify their most critical points of risk, validate security controls and effect remediation.
Through its expanded services offerings, Intekras will assist customers in configuring Core’s products, building out their internal penetration testing programs and translating assessment results into actionable data to rapidly address existing points of exposure. By allowing organizations to further embed testing into their IT security best practices and establish continuous risk management capabilities, the two companies are confident that they can empower organizations to markedly improve their understanding of security posture and advance their overall risk standing over time.
“As hands-on IT risk and information assurance practitioners, we’re keenly aware of the need for continuous risk measurement and monitoring, as well as turn-key information security solutions that can enable organizations to identify, measure, and remediate vulnerabilities to address today’s advanced threats,” said Charles Williams, president & CEO of Intekras. “Intekras is pleased to establish a formal partnership with an industry leader such as Core Security Technologies as our integrated testing capabilities are exactly what clients are looking for.”
Core Security has actively expanded its value added reseller program in recent months to help customers of all sizes around the globe avail themselves of its market-leading automated testing solutions in the manner that best fits their needs.
“With its mix of leading-edge security and risk management product and services offerings, backed by its proven track record in helping clients address their challenges in a truly proactive, effective manner, we know that Intekras will become an even more strategic partner to Core Security over time, addressing the needs of government and private sector companies across the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Stephen Pace, vice president of Sales and Services at Core Security. “We’re proud to expand our existing presence in the market through this highly complementary relationship with an established provider such as Intekras.”
