SIFARIS and OKIOK conclude an agreement to distribute OKIOK solutions in France along with sharing methodologies to Penetration testing and cutting-edge expertise in securing critical IT assets.
SIFARIS will join forces with OKIOK in Quebec, contributing its expertise in security and governance. OKIOK thus enhances the distribution of its solutions and methodologies throughout France and Europe.
SIFARIS, an information systems security consulting firm, announces the signing of an alliance with OKIOK, an information security specialist in Canada. This partnership covers the distribution in France of two leading-edge software solutions developed by OKIOK, as well as an exchange of methodologies for penetration testing and vulnerability assessment.
OKIOK will also appeal to SIFARIS’s specific expertise in the governance of IT assets acquired through numerous engagements and interventions.
SIFARIS will distribute two of OKIOK’s solutions throughout France:
- S-Filer/Portal, a user-friendly multi-protocol solution for secure file transfer. Thanks to powerful encryption and the ability to enforce enterprise security policies, it facilitates the creation of secure and easy to use business channels for transferring critical information between employees, customers, suppliers and partners. S-Filer/Portal™ has been put to task by many prestigious organizations in Chile, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Germany and France.
- RAC/M Identity, a robust identity management and governance solution that consolidates data from disparate systems to provide enterprise wide views of accesses, implement robust Role Based Access Controls, reduce risk and meet regulatory requirements. RAC/M Identity generates identity models based on a simple and pragmatic set of criteria that responds to an up-to-the-minute dynamic organizational environment: jobs, positions, rules, context, and workflows.
This partnership will also be an opportunity for these two security specialists to share their respective expertise and penetration testing methodology – an evaluation method of information systems’ security. Just like OKIOK, SIFARIS has designed its own penetration tests. The outcome of the partnership will result in an even better time tested and effective approach.
« We are delighted to draw on the vitality, professionalism and expertise of the SIFARIS team. OKIOK is convinced that the positive fallout from this collaboration will benefit our respective organizations, but more importantly, our customers will profit from an expanded pool of security expertise and also from solutions for the governance of the security of the systems and information infrastructures. » insisted Mr. Claude Vigeant, President of OKIOK.In order to strengthen this collaboration, SIFARIS consultants will be trained and certified on both solutions, as well as on the OKIOK penetration testing and vulnerability assessment methodology.
