Avatier Spins Off IT Security Consulting

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, today introduced IT Security Consulting™. An Avatier company, the new spinoff leverages Avatier's proven security expertise to deliver fixed-price services that help today's information security officers (ISOs) tackle the greatest security incidents and challenges.


ISOs in every industry face daunting challenges with delivering day-to-day security operations and lowering risk for their organizations. As a result, many turn to large consulting firms, hoping to complement their inhouse security expertise. Unfortunately, many larger consulting firms often assign recent graduates or other low-cost/low-experience security resources to engagements which results in minimal value. IT Security Consulting provides these organizations with expert security advisors who are true thought leaders and who understand business risks. Created with the ISO in mind, IT Security Consulting leverages its parent company's proven software skills and experience gained from working with a long list of clients to make consulting engagements faster and more efficient.

IT Security Consulting also eliminates unforeseen expenses by offering various security services at a fixed price. This rivals the approach of traditional security services companies, which expect organizations to enter a consulting relationship with an open checkbook, making it difficult to keep control over expenses. Unique in the industry, IT Security Consulting's fixed-price model allows organizations to get the job done, without overspending.

"While IT Security Consulting is completely separate from Avatier, it offers its clients the benefit of security expertise culled from Avatier's years in the industry," said Nelson Cicchitto, CEO and president, Avatier. "It extends Avatier's model of helping organizations reach their security objectives quickly, cost-effectively and in a way never seen before in the industry." "With its highly talented consultants on staff, IT Security Consulting brings a level of expertise that is atypical of the security services industry," said Ryan Ward, managing director of IT Security Consulting. "This, combined with our fixed-price model, will prove successful as we engage with ISOs that truly need assistance meeting their organization's security goals."
