KITCHENER, ON and NEW YORK, NY – December 6, 2017 – Align has selected RootSecure as a strategic partner with the objective of increasing and diversifying its cybersecurity capabilities. Align offers many Information Security (IS) and Information Technology (IT) services and has just released a suite of cybersecurity tools designed to complement and enhance its Cybersecurity Advisory Services practice, Align Cybersecurity™. At the forefront of this suite of tools, is Align’s unique Risk CSR (Continuous Scanning and Reporting) application, which is built on RootSecure technology.
As cybersecurity attacks continue to grow in both scale and sophistication, comprehensive and cutting-edge cybersecurity strategies must be used to prevent possible breaches and to assess, detect and remediate other attack vectors that are being exploited, such as firewalls and other “first layer” defenses. Align Risk CSR provides continual transparency and monitoring on an entire network, including its dark corners, and quantifies this risk in both technical and non-technical reporting functions.
“We're very excited to partner with Align to provide our cyber risk expertise and to augment the capabilities and inherent value of their cybersecurity offering,” said James Mignacca, RootSecure's Chief Executive Office. “In the past 12 months, we've seen businesses transform their security by increasing the number of protective layers they use. RootSecure's continuous vulnerability assessment solution is a perfect fit for the Cybersecurity Advisory Services Align is offering their clients.”
Align and RootSecure have been working towards a joint launch since earlier this year. The RootSecure product is a SaaS-based solution designed to fit any size of end-user; with combined integration into Align's cybersecurity client portal to provide executive and technical summaries of the risk data uncovered by RootSecure.
“Align is dedicated to providing cutting-edge solutions to our clients. RootSecure is a unique, high-functioning and best of breed solution that brings our cybersecurity offering to a new level,” said Vinod Paul, Align’s Chief Operating Officer. “RootSecure gives our team an unparalleled 24x7x365 visibility into a customer’s risk posture, how to address that risk, and where to focus our efforts. This strategic partnership enables us to continue to provide exciting and innovative technology that complement our Cybersecurity Advisory Services, allowing us to remain as market leaders in the cybersecurity space and to provide real value to our clients.”
