ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2017) - Cytellix -- the cybersecurity division of Information Management Resources, Inc. (IMRI), an industry standards-based, managed cybersecurity service provider -- is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with California Manufacturing Technology Consulting® (CMTC) to deliver Cytellix's services to California manufacturers.
A turnkey solution, Cytellix's managed cybersecurity services bring complete cyber assessment, vulnerability scanning, continuous network behavioral analytics, remediation best practices and a plan of action as an annual subscription. Through the new partnership with CMTC, these services will be offered directly to California's small and medium-size manufacturers, enabling customers to be compliant with DoD cybersecurity regulations.
"We are proud to be teaming up with CMTC for this partnership. The collaboration is a win for everyone involved," said Cytellix executive vice president of commercial cybersecurity, Brian Berger. "In addition to cost savings, customers will receive premier cybersecurity services from Cytellix and CMTC. Our combined expertise will ensure California manufacturers are NIST-compliant, cyber-ready and prepared for new contract opportunities."
A non-profit consulting firm and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) designated Manufacturing Extension Partnership Center (MEP) in California, CMTC aims to identify and transfer technologies that improve competitiveness, innovation and value specifically for small and medium-size manufacturers. With NIST SP 800-171 compliance required by December 31, 2017, the federal supply chain customer base must be able to complete assessments, documentation, remediation and real-time awareness of any cyber vulnerabilities within 30 days of any contract award.
"Since failure to comply with DoD Cybersecurity regulations will reduce or even eliminate an organization's chances to qualify for defense contracts, implementing these new cybersecurity controls is critical," said Jim Watson, CMTC's president and CEO. "We are very pleased to be partnering with Cytellix. Not only are they cybersecurity experts, but their approach makes security and compliance easier for small and medium-size manufacturers."
