San Francisco, CA – February 27, 2012 – Core Security, a leading provider of predictive security intelligence solutions, and nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to integrate Core Insight and Impact with nCircle IP360™ and nCircle PureCloud™. These integrated offerings will provide a broad platform for information and network security that enables organizations to obtain precise and predictable information on their risk posture.
Under the agreement, Core Insight and Impact customers will have access to vulnerability management data directly from nCircle IP360 and PureCloud to improve their penetration testing efforts. The companies will also execute joint go-to-market activities around the new integrated solutions. The results of the partnership will help enterprises, government agencies, and small-to-medium-sized businesses around the world better manage business risk and achieve regulatory compliance.
Integrated solutions from Core Security and nCircle will help organizations become more proactive, improve abilities to manage business risk and achieve compliance. The combined solutions will also reduce costs and increase operational efficiencies associated with vulnerability management processes. In addition to technology integration, Core Security and nCircle will also create new go-to-market channels to provide integrated solutions to organizations worldwide.
“The greatest risk an organization can take is to remain reactive in the face of today’s IT threats. Any enterprise that hopes to survive and thrive must go on the offensive and preempt attacks rather than wait to deal with their consequences,” said Milan Shah, senior vice president of products and engineering at Core Security. “We are very pleased to partner with nCircle to help organizations of all sizes around the world better protect themselves against outside attacks using technologies and processes that, when combined, provide an even stronger solution to the problem.”
“The combination of best-in-class automated attack planning and penetration testing from Core, and best-in-class vulnerability management from nCircle, provides our joint customers with an unbeatable combination for proactive security,” said Jim Acquaviva, vice president of product strategy for nCircle. “By combining information on vulnerabilities, exploits, and malware exposure with penetration testing information, customers can dramatically improve their security intelligence.”
