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.

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.
