Edgeos Introduces New Month-to-Month Pricing Model for Private Labeled Vulnerability Assessment Services Offering

New offering takes the risk out of getting into the vulnerability assessment business

Austin, TX  January 29, 2009 - Edgeos, Inc., a provider of private labeled, managed vulnerability assessment services, announced today that it will add a new month-to-month based pricing model to its existing suite of managed vulnerability assessment services. This new flexible pricing plan enables smaller technology services providers to start offering vulnerability assessment services without having to commit to a monthly minimum at the outset. This new offering supplements Edgeos' existing subscription-based, software-as-a-service offering, which provides technology service providers, managed services providers, security consultants and security services providers, internal IT/IS organizations, value added resellers, carriers, ISPs, and systems integrators with private labeled vulnerability assessment services on demand.

The Edgeos service was designed for the channel, helping these companies to build new sources of recurring revenues, drive brand value, simplify management and minimize costs. Unlike other offerings in the marketplace, Edgeos offers a private labeled service that enables partners to perform unlimited internal and external vulnerability scans on unique hosts through a secure, fully web-enabled portal on an affordable subscription basis, rather than requiring incremental hardware or software licenses. Edgeos currently monitors tens of thousands of networks across six continents.

"Many companies are skeptical about launching a new business in the current economic climate," said Jay Jacobson, CEO, Edgeos, Inc. "This new offering takes the risk out of getting into the vulnerability assessment business. We designed our month-to-month plan for smaller companies who may not have a security service offering today or who want to try our services out on their customers without getting into an annual contract with a set minimum usage rate. Customers can upgrade to a standard annual or multi-year contract at any time."

Edgeos' customers use their vulnerability management platform to quickly and accurately identify millions of vulnerabilities every month. The Edgeos Security Services Platform is comprised of four components:

  • An Integrated Web-based Security Portal that provides access to all aspects of the service
  • Scanning Engines that perform fully automated internal or external assessments either scheduled or on demand and provide unlimited scanning of unique hosts.
  • A Custom Reporting Engine which offers in-depth security analysis data in a wide variety of formats including differentials, historical trending, threat overviews, and executive summaries.
  • A Security Management Interface that enables partner businesses and their customers to configure, customize, schedule and control all aspects of their security services for their business.

Edgeos' external and internal scanning reaches all segments of any network. Partners can deploy automated scanning servers within user networks while managing security services from any remote location. Diagnostic assessments can generate new revenue from remediation business and consulting. Edgeos services meet or exceed all vulnerability scanning requirements for all of the most important regulations and industry standards including PCI, SOX, HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA, and many others. The integrated portal helps partners' clients prove to auditors and management that the appropriate governance, risk and compliance (GRC) obligations are met.
