CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Co3 Systems, the leader in Incident Response Management Systems, has been selected for Gartner Inc.'s "Cool Vendors" report, 2014. Gartner defines a Cool Vendor as one that offers technologies or solutions that are innovative, impactful and intriguing.
"Between increased attacks and expanding regulatory requirements, it is harder than ever for firms to navigate incident response -- particularly when regulated data is involved. Co3 cuts through the confusion with a simple yet comprehensive and prescriptive system that guides our customers through all of the steps required to ensure a compliant and highly efficient result," said John Bruce, CEO at Co3 Systems. "As a leader in driving the industry's evolution from prevention and detection to response, we believe inclusion in Gartner's Cool Vendor report is a gratifying validation of our vision."
Purpose-Built Incident Response Management
Co3's Security Module is the first daily use response and preparedness platform for security incidents such as malware infections, phishing campaigns, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, device or Intellectual Property theft and system intrusions. Co3's Privacy Module extends the platform to include guidance for breaches of regulated information like personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI). Considered today as the industry standard for incident response management, the Co3 platform provides an easy, automated way to ensure consistency and accountability -- across teams, organizations and external stakeholders. Together, the Modules provide the most comprehensive solution to prepare, assess, manage and mitigate security incidents and privacy breaches.
