Brabeion Software and PricewaterhouseCoopers Form Alliance to Help Enterprises Manage IT Risk and Achieve Regulatory Compliance

Alliance Agreement Allows Brabeion to Leverage PricewaterhouseCoopers' Information Security Content as Part of Brabeion's Enterp

MCLEAN, Va., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Brabeion Software, a McLean, VA-based provider of IT security risk and compliance management software, today announced a strategic alliance with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to provide PwC's IT risk and security content as part of Brabeion's Enterprise Security Architecture System (ESAS). ESAS is a powerful and secure web-based IT security risk and compliance management tool that bridges the gap between business and technology.

"This relationship, which positions Brabeion as the sole third-party provider of PricewaterhouseCoopers' information security content incorporated into ESAS, is the first substantive step in Brabeion's pursuit of the leadership position in helping enterprises manage and maintain their IT compliance with government and industry regulatory security guidelines," said Brabeion president and CEO Julian Waits. "Most solutions provide either software functionality or a database of information. Our vision is to provide a world class offering that combines both as a single solution."

In April Waits announced that Brabeion obtained $5 million in venture financing from TD Capital Ventures and Longworth Venture Partners.

PricewaterhouseCoopers originally developed ESAS to help large organizations manage the creation and implementation of their enterprise-wide security policies. The software tool is a repository of leading security practices, technical controls and standards derived in part from PricewaterhouseCoopers deep experience with information security. This critical content can be used to customize security policies and procedures for any organization. The software can be used as a knowledge management portal to help keep IT professionals and auditors on the same page regarding the organization's security posture. Brabeion purchased the ESAS solution in April 2005. PricewaterhouseCoopers' Advisory professionals will continue to provide services to help organizations customize and use ESAS.

"Brabeion is ideal for this alliance as they are committed to further development of the technology with the vision to transform ESAS into a full- featured security compliance and policy management tool," said Fred Rica, partner, Advisory, PricewaterhouseCoopers. "Too often, organizations develop security policies that sit on the shelf. In some cases, they may have separate policies for individual business units or entities. Yet the increasing focus on regulatory compliance demands that organizations create and implement integrated security policies that help ensure a consistent centralized approach to information security across the enterprise. Only through a consistent, practical approach to security can an organization hope to meet compliance mandates and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of its IT controls."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
