Apptega and Assessivate To Disrupt $200 Billion Cybersecurity Market
In an increasingly risky world, Apptega and Assessivate partner as a powerhouse for cybersecurity management.
Atlanta – August 29, 2019 – Apptega, the leading cybersecurity management platform, and Assessivate, an expert security management firm, have joined forces to disrupt the $200 billion cyber security market by bringing compliance to companies of all sizes.
With a shared goal of enabling businesses to grow by simplifying complex security and compliance requirements, Apptega and Assessivate serve companies on their journey to security in today’s risky world. Both companies strive to “protect and defend” and make cybersecurity easier for organizations from small business IT leaders to Fortune 500 companies.
“Armistead and his entire team at Apptega have a great vision and understanding of the current challenges businesses face. When observing how companies tackled compliance in the past, if they couldn’t afford an expensive option, they were stuck using spreadsheets,” said Andrew Edstrom, President and CEO at Assessivate.
With this kind of partnership making compliance and security available to organizations desperately in need of an update, companies are able to visually manage and organize their security programs. Each app inside Apptega connects with established frameworks and automatically shares its data with other apps – providing unprecedented visibility, cohesiveness and control of an entire program.
“Apptega is excited to be disrupting the $200 billion cybersecurity market alongside Assessivate. Together, our customers are building, managing, and reporting their cybersecurity programs in new ways. In our partnership with Assessivate, we’re making a direct impact today on how the world will tackle cybersecurity in the upcoming decades,” said Armistead Whitney, CEO at Apptega.
Assessivate turned to Apptega for their simple, intuitive platform, real-time reporting and dynamic scoring. By partnering with Apptega, Assessivate furthers their mission by helping customers with regulatory compliance such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR. When companies have the visibility of an easy-to-read road map that breaks down their cybersecurity workflow, their adherence to regulations improves as well as the company-wide understanding and management of compliance policies.
Edstrom stated, “Our customers are thrilled with the visibility and data behind the platform. Usually with compliance, it’s given to one person in an organization who ends up pulling their hair out. Apptega has been instrumental in alleviating stress for us and for customers, which allows them to focus on the bigger goals of their business.”
When teams are using one dimensional tools like spreadsheets, it removes the ability to collaborate, delegate, manage, assign tasks, but also stay up-to-date with real-time reporting. Not only does this slow teams down and train internal resources, but it also inherently puts these companies at risk.
“When we look at security products or compliance products, we’re looking for things that add tremendous value, not just niche products that only do one thing. We need tools that are much more comprehensive. We applaud the team at Apptega adding things like policy procedure templates that add major value down the road,” said Edstrom.
When businesses from large enterprises to small business owners are empowered to understand cybersecurity without mental overload, all businesses step forward in the right direction with cybersecurity.
“The biggest value for us is that compliance now becomes continuous. It’s an ongoing endeavor instead of a once a year update where the company shuts down,” stated Edstrom.
With both companies propelling forward in their industry-changing work, Assessivate looks forward to a continued partnership with Apptega and is excited for new innovations from the team.
