HERNDON, Va. -- Secure Elements, the industry leader in standards-based IT audit and compliance management, today announced a joint marketing agreement with Grant Thornton LLP that enables both firms to jointly market services and solutions for Information Assurance and compliance solutions to the Federal government. This announcement was made today at the Third Annual IT Security Automation Conference, where Secure Elements demonstrated their C5 Compliance technology on stage during Karen Evans keynote address.
Secure Elements solutions for automated compliance auditing - especially for the FDCC - are an excellent complement to our service offering in IT compliance, risk management and security, commented Jim St. Clair, a Senior Manager in the Global Public Sector of Grant Thornton LLP. The ease of use of C5 technology is an outstanding resource as we respond to the rise in our clients need for a variety of compliance solutions. The net result is more efficient and effective compliance efforts for us and our customer.
Under the agreement, Secure Elements and Grant Thornton will jointly market their auditing capabilities in the federal government space. The firms anticipate expanding the scope of the partnership beyond government to additional industry vertical markets as the need for automated compliance potentially grows in other regulated industries.
As our business steadily grows the need for a partner with expertise in IT standards compliance and a global presence was required, said Ned Miller, CEO, Secure Elements. With Grant Thorntons global footprint and excellent industry reputation, the partnership will enable our service delivery model to expand exponentially
