eGestalt Named a 2011 Tech Innovator for 'Managed Services' by UBM Channel's CRN(October 25, 2011)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/11 -- eGestalt Technologies (www.eGestalt.com), a leading provider of cloud-based, SaaS-delivered, security and information technology governance, risk management and compliance solutions for SMBs to enterprises, announced today that its SecureGRC solution was named a runner-up in the Managed Services category at the 9th annual CRN 2011 Tech Innovator awards ceremony. SecureGRC's award-winning, patent-pending technology affords MSPs the power to offer their installed base of customers a SaaS-based security and compliance solution at 1/10 the cost, with less overhead than software-only point solutions.
The Tech Innovator listing celebrates vendors that have introduced new products or solutions to drive advances in the technology channel. Companies on this exclusive list recently implemented innovative methods to bridge the gap between current problems and solutions facing channel executives today.
CRN selected eGestalt SecureGRC as a runner-up winner because it was built exclusively for the channel with the benefit of being a cloud-based security and risk assessment, auditing and remediation application.
Starting at $750 per year, SecureGRC's patent-pending multi-tenant cloud-based SaaS architecture allows completely secure instances to be created on a per partner and end-customer basis leading to a very cost-effective, pay-as-you-go services model for customer.
SecureGRC offers peace of mind to channel partners servicing SMBs to large enterprises, including medical providers and their Business Associates. SecureGRC has been widely adopted by numerous channel partners who offer security and compliance services thereby gaining entry into the lucrative markets of compliance and security, including healthcare IT, one of the fastest growing segments for the MSP business.
"MSP partners can realize tremendous upside by reaching out to these covered entities' Business Associates who must also comply with HIPAA/HITECH and PCI regulations," said eGestalt President Anupam Sahai. "These BAs are desperate for a simple, low-cost cloud solution like SecureGRC, and MSP partners can add bundled services to the deal for additional profit-making opportunities."
eGestalt's channel strategy involves the certification of Managed Compliance Providers (MCPs), a channel program based around a proprietary "cookbook" that serves as an introduction and training guide for partners just getting started with delivering managed compliance services.
SecureGRC also offers an automated PCI-DSS compliance management software that helps meet PCI-DSS requirements in terms of building and maintaining a secure network; protecting card holder data; maintaining a vulnerability management solution; implementing strong access control measures; regularly monitoring and testing networks, and maintaining robust IT security policies.

"In today's challenging business environment, it's more important than ever to discover, nurture and reward new ideas," said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director for UBM Channel. "This year's Tech Innovator Awards recognizes technology companies that have used original methods or technologies to deliver cutting-edge products and partner support. We congratulate this year's winners and runners-up on their successes, and applaud them for breaking away from traditional thinking to create completely new and unique channel opportunities."
