Atlanta – May 5, 2020 – Last week, cybersecurity management software innovator Apptega hosted the 2nd annual Amplify Cybersecurity Conference for its growing cadre of customers and partners. More than 100 attendees participated in the event, hosted virtually this year with a condensed agenda.
“The entire Apptega team is proud to support our customers and partners as they strive to protect against ever-expanding cyber threats and ensure compliance with the latest cybersecurity regulations and guidelines,” said Armistead Whitney, CEO of Apptega. “The very positive feedback we received on the innovations shared during the Amplify conference indicates that we’re providing the platform that simplifies the complex maze of cybersecurity management and enables our customers and partners to continuously improve their cyber-readiness.”

Conference attendees learned about the new Apptega API and application-specific Connectors in detail. With these new utilities, Apptega can serve as the cybersecurity system-of-record, pulling in data from web application scanning (WAS) systems, firewalls, and end-point-protection systems. The API can also be used to push data to surrounding systems such as project management systems and IT service management (ITSM) systems.
“We are very excited about the new Apptega API and the application-specific Connectors,” said Darin Haines, Senior Vice President of Global Consulting for MCPc. “Apptega is our standard platform for managing the cybersecurity programs of our MSSP clients and this new flexibility will enable us to deliver substantial efficiencies for both our consultants and our clients.”
