Laval (Quebec), April 8th, 2014. Virtual Guardian Inc., leading Canadian IT security consultancy firm, confirmed today its partnership with San Mateo, California-based AlienVault, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, as an exclusive managed security services provider for its Unified Security Management™ solution (USM) in the province of Quebec, Canada.
AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform provides a way for organizations with limited security staff and budget to address compliance and threat management needs. With all of the essential security controls built-in, and continuous threat intelligence updates from AlienVault Labs, USM provides unparalleled security visibility.
“Virtual Guardian has spent the last ten years helping Canadian organizations achieve security visibility through its service offering,” said Patrick Boucher, Virtual Guardian’s President and Founder. “AlienVault’s USM is the most affordable, complete solution sharing that same objective. It just made perfect sense to become a managed security service provider and add that weapon to our arsenal. We now have the ability to offer our clients complete visibility and control over their network security.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Virtual Guardian as an exclusive reseller of our USM offering in Quebec,” said Steven Wolford, Strategic Account Manager at AlienVault. “Virtual Guardian’s security expertise combined with our award-winning USM product will provide their customers with the security visibility needed in today’s environment.”
“Quebec’s information security’s decision makers are being assailed on all sides by vendors of individual solutions. Managing these point solutions is becoming an increasingly difficult, time consuming and expensive task. More and more organizations in our province are requesting solutions that can deliver better security visibility and more control over their infrastructure at an affordable cost. That’s exactly what we plan on delivering,” concludes Mr. Boucher.
