Apptega and UTG, Teaming Up to Empower Organizations to Efficiently Implement and Report on Complex Cybersecurity and Compliance Requirements
With a mission to make cybersecurity more accessible, Apptega and UTG partner to empower organizations to take control of security requirements.
Atlanta, August 1, 2019 – Today, Apptega, the leading cybersecurity management platform, and UTG – A Coretelligent Company, a top managed IT services provider, are announcing a strategic partnership based on mutual missions to make cybersecurity more accessible to all organizations.
Eric Dykes, Senior Vice President of Operations – Southern Region, at UTG – A Coretelligent Company, said, “Our goal is to deliver clients a systematic approach to compliance requirements, placing them in a more favorable position to comply with and handle audits. Before Apptega, for audits specifically, our clients were pulling from ground zero every time. They needed a singular, simple dashboard to house security data, easily update progress, and pull intuitive reports quickly instead of undergoing an extremely disruptive ‘fire drill’ that is not favorable in the eyes of auditors.”
Key aspects of Apptega’s proprietary, patent-pending technology are utilized in this partnership, such as the power behind its comprehensive dashboard for all cybersecurity management. Giving organizations a centralized security management platform allows the implementation and management of an entire program, helping companies handle the complexities of cybersecurity audits and compliance requests with ease.
“Using Apptega, our clients visualize satisfactory areas as well as improvement areas. This allows our clients to easily prioritize their efforts and investments in cybersecurity and other programmatic spend,” said Dykes.
Armistead Whitney, CEO of Apptega, said, “Empowering organizations to implement, manage and report cybersecurity and compliance furthers our mission of bringing security outside of the IT department. Together, Apptega and UTG – A Coretelligent Company are on a powerful trajectory to affect the future of global business security.”
When companies have the visibility of an easy-to-read road map that breaks down their cybersecurity workflow, adherence to regulations improves as well as the company-wide understanding and management of compliance policies. Compliance becomes a living, continuous process that allows companies to grow, scale, and flourish within their own business goals.
Apptega is committed to making cybersecurity easier and more accessible for everyone. By using technology to unify, track and report cybersecurity processes, Apptega helps organizations of all sizes stay protected and compliant. Apptega is at the intersection of creativity and patent-pending technology, making cybersecurity simple for everyone from small business IT leaders to Fortune 500 companies with dozens of security professionals. Apptega was founded in early 2017 by American entrepreneur Armistead Whitney and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information, visit apptega.com.
