WebSphere portal users concerned about the security of their applications can now find the expertise and support they need through PCIS

VANCOUVER – As cyber criminals devise ever-more sophisticated tactics to overcome portal and application security measures, companies are looking for a security solution to protect their essential business operations. Pacific Coast Information Systems Ltd. has combined a team of WebSphere portal and application security experts with effective security tools to provide an exceptional level of security for WebSphere portal users.

“Thanks to a smart collaboration of our Devfense WSA (Web Security Assessment) and vulnerability remediation services with the web portal development experience we've built over a number of years, we're able to offer a more high-quality kind of security that organizations using WebSphere need right now to protect their network and customers,” says PCIS President Vaclav Vincalek. "They'll have better assurance that their portal and applications will be protected against known threats.”

PCIS’ Boonbox division, providing security solutions for the network and the web, first launched Devfense WSA in 2008. As well, the company has been involved in a public awareness campaign about the need for better cyber security in publications like the Cyber Security Informer and through partnerships with groups like the Global Centre for Securing Cyberspace (GCSC).

“It’s important that all organizations do what they can to lock down their portals and online presence, given the need to maintain business operations in the current economic climate,” Vincalek says. “Companies need to balance openness and flexibility with security that will bring peace of mind to CEOs and stakeholders alike that their organization has protection.

As an added incentive to help companies get started on this process of making the systems more secure, PCIS is offering a 15% off their Devfense WSA comprehensive WebSphere assessments. They can conduct a valuable high-level exploration of an organization's application to determine their current Websphere Portal security needs. "We expect many organizations will want to take advantage of this opportunity, since organizations are increasingly talking about security as a business priority,” Vincalek adds.
