Core Security Announces VAR Partnership With Patriot Technologies

The addition helps Core extend security testing solutions to federal and commercial entities

Boston, MA —March 31, 2009— Core Security Technologies, provider of the CORE IMPACT family of comprehensive enterprise security testing solutions, today announced a new partnership with Patriot Technologies. The addition of Patriot Technologies to Core Security's Value Added Reseller (VAR) Program will allow the software maker to extend its ability to provide comprehensive security testing solutions to federal and commercial entities, and also enable Patriot Technologies to broaden the depth and breadth of their offerings.

"Based on Patriot's experienced and dedicated field sales professionals, their reputation as a trusted advisor within the security space and their history of offering services concentrating on information security and information technology, we felt that this was a perfect fit for the CORE IMPACT family of products," said Jeff Clark, vice president of business development of Core Security Technologies. "With this new partnership, together we will be able to help more government organizations to comply with IT security regulations and lock-down their systems and infrastructure."

CORE IMPACT Pro has proven itself as an extremely valuable asset in helping organizations meet specific security testing requirements (e.g., standards including FISMA, PCI and NIST), and in helping organizations prove that other prescribed defense mechanisms and policies are functioning properly. By taking a comprehensive, real-world approach to security testing, CORE IMPACT Pro helps organizations meet the letter of the law, and embrace the underlying spirit of compliance regulations.

"Integrating the CORE IMPACT family of products into our solutions will help us take our security offerings to the next level," said Bruce Tucker, president and founder of Patriot Technologies.
