ePlus CyberSecurity Management Program Delivers Continuous Approach to Build a Strong Security Framework
Empowers organizations to adapt to changing threat landscape for improved compliance and risk containment
HERNDON, VA – November 17, 2016 – ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUS – news) launched its CyberSecurity Management Program, a programmatic security service that allows organizations to establish, implement, maintain, and improve their cybersecurity processes. ePlus’ comprehensive approach provides regular interaction with ePlus’ security professionals, tools, and processes which can create a proactive security lifecycle management rather than a purely reactive, threat-based approach.
The ePlus CyberSecurity Management Program offers:
- ePlus as a single point of contact for security and a catalog of security services and policies
- Regular security reviews, assessments, and healthchecks
- Customized analysis and reporting
- Standards-based assessments, such as ISO270001, NIST, UCF, COBIT, PCI, DSS, ISF, and HIPAA
- On-going employee training and security audits to help meet compliance mandates
“On average, it takes about 250 days from the time a security breach occurs to when it is actually discovered, plus time to mitigate. That is an unacceptable risk for any organization,” said Dan Farrell, ePlus senior vice president of Services. “With the stakes so high, the historical approach to security, such as annual snapshot assessments, stop/start engagements, and point solutions which are quickly outdated,are no longer effective. Our ePlus CyberSecurity Management Program provides customers with a regular security program to address today’s dynamic IT security threat landscape.”
“It’s no secret that security breaches may put financial results, brand image, and company reputation at risk,” said Mike Trojecki, ePlus vice president of business transformation. “IT faces tremendous pressure to deliver a better customer experience which is also secure and fast.. The ePlus CyberSecurity Management Program offers the flexibility of a subscription-like service which can bundle our security expertise, solutions, and services—enabling customers to proactively identify vulnerabilities, revisit their risk profile, define an action plan, and make regular security management part of their culture.”
