Perimeter eSecurity has acquired Edgeos Inc., a provider of on-demand, managed vulnerability services which are designed to enable carriers, VARs and other partner organizations to provide security services to their customers through its SaaS-enabled, private-labeled security services platform. The Edgeos managed vulnerability service suite has been fully integrated with Perimeter’s Vulnerability Management Solution Suite that includes server and desktop AV, Patch and Configuration Management, as well as a number of network-based and CPE-based security services. This enhanced internal and external scanning technology, combined with the online PCI questionnaire and optional consulting, provides significant enhancements to Perimeter’s PCI Compliance Solution Suite, said Perimeter.
In addition to supporting Level 1, 2 and 3 Retail Merchants, the suite now enables merchant banks to manage their Level 4 Merchants through a consolidated reporting and management console, rather than manually distributing policies, collecting scans and reviewing questionnaires. In addition, this enables merchant banks to cost-effectively demonstrate compliance with the recent clarifications issued by the PCI Security Standards Council, and health care companies to demonstrate HIPAA compliance.
“The Edgeos service is extremely partner-friendly,” said Doug Howard, chief strategy officer at Perimeter eSecurity. “It helps VARs, carriers and PCI Consultants/ASVs build new sources of recurring revenues and minimize costs and can be offered as a white-label or a powered by Perimeter service.”
