eGestalt To Launch New Risk Management Module For Its Aegify IT Security & Compliance Solution

Aegify Risk Manager enables complete work flow automation to comprehensively address and manage business security, compliance, and risk needs

SANTA CLARA, CA (PRWEB) -- December 23, 2013 -- Call it a victory for strategic vs. 'check off the boxes' tactical IT security and compliance. Today, eGestalt Technologies announced it has added a risk management module, Aegify Risk Manager, that can be deployed with the award-winning company's cloud-based SaaS Aegify Security Posture Management (SPM) and Compliance solutions to enable an enterprise to strategically identify business-critical assets, continually assess the assets' security vulnerability, and, if necessary, fix security loop-holes and remediate based upon a rational, prioritized risk-benefit analysis achieved via rules and automated data inputs and assessments.

"Whether in healthcare, financial services, retail, e-commerce, or government markets, today's small, medium and large enterprises face security threats and must meet compliance obligations under HIPAA, HITECH, SOX, PCI-DSS, GLBA, FISMA – or else face significant fines," said Michael Osterman of Osterman Research. "With eGestalt adding a risk management service module to its cloud-based SaaS Aegify SPM and Compliance solutions, an enterprise can cost-effectively achieve automated, 24/7 IT security monitoring and achieve compliance in a strategic manner that allows the head of IT to readily justify security expenditures to the CEO. This is an important aid in helping senior decision makers to determine how IT security affects business and the bottom line."

eGestalt offers its comprehensive, unified, continuous end-to-end automated IT security, compliance and risk management Aegify solution to managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs).

Anupam Sahai, co-founder and president, eGestalt Technologies, said: "The Aegify Risk Manager represents a complete risk management solution that is cost-effective, completely automated, and integrated with the Aegify security and compliance management services. The Risk Manager leverages an expert system-based approach saving time and resources, while obviating the need of being an expert in the field."

Aegify enables complete work flow automation to comprehensively address and manage business security, compliance and risk needs. Aegify Risk Manager features:

"As a practicing physician and one of the principals of a medical practice group, I'm focused primarily on the quality of patient care, and while I recognize IT security and compliance is a necessity to protect patient data, IT security and compliance has been a kind of 'black box' to me and I have it managed by one of my office managers," said Dr. Steven Krems, a principal of Access Medical Group in Marina del Rey, Calif., which has for 20 consecutive years served the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. "With a cost-effective and transparent IT security, compliance and risk management offering made available by eGestalt, I like that my IT manager can readily explain to me specifics as to why monies need to be allocated to protect patient data and achieve compliancy."

Aegify modules are available via managed service providers and VARs, with eGestalt establishing a suggested retail price starting from $1,200/year to $9,000/year and higher depending on service edition and service levels. The eGestalt solution fits a 'pay as you grow' business model.
