Symark International Launches Professional Services Division to Reduce Implementation Security Risks and Business Continuity Pitfalls
Newly Appointed EVP Matthew S. Collier to Head Practice
Agoura Hills, Calif. - March 5, 2009 - Symark International, developer of the PowerSeries™ identity and access management solutions for heterogeneous IT environments, today announced the launch of Symark Professional Services, a new practice dedicated to expediting the incorporation of Symark’s PowerSeries™ solutions within a company’s IT infrastructure.
The practice was created to reduce the risks associated with a new deployment and help companies get the maximum return on their security investment. Symark’s product experts use their extensive knowledge of the Company’s product suite and their deployment expertise to quickly assess an organization’s unique network environment and business policies, and advise on privileged access control best practices, including recommendations on configurations and security policies.
As part of this new practice, Symark will also enable its customers to manage solutions by transferring critical product knowledge through real-time guidance and instruction, as well as through structured product training sessions in the installation, configuration, and deployment through Symark University Classes.
“The creation of our professional services division will mean more effective implementations and faster return on investment for our customers,” said Matt Collier, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Field Operations, Symark International. “It also marks an important milestone as we continue to offer a more mature and complete service to our customers.”
Symark Professional Services will also offer onsite assistance for installation and configuration, from outsourcing the development and proof of concept of the products to outlining the tasks necessary for a successful compliance-ready deployment. Professional Services will also help customers to deploy Symark PowerBroker® to better control and log access while still empowering administrators to get their jobs done.
Symark’s PowerSeries solutions—including PowerBroker, PowerKeeper®, PowerPassword® and PowerADvantage®—help organizations in all industries control privileged administrator and end-user access to IT systems and proprietary information across heterogeneous IT environments. Symark currently has more than 1000 customers worldwide, and its industry-leading technologies continue to help enterprises combat insider threat and comply with SOX, HIPAA, PCI DSS and other federal and industry regulations.
