Avatier Spins Off IT Security Consulting

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, today introduced IT Security Consulting™. An Avatier company, the new spinoff leverages Avatier's proven security expertise to deliver fixed-price services that help today's information security officers (ISOs) tackle the greatest security incidents and challenges.

ISOs in every industry face daunting challenges with delivering day-to-day security operations and lowering risk for their organizations. As a result, many turn to large consulting firms, hoping to complement their inhouse security expertise. Unfortunately, many larger consulting firms often assign recent graduates or other low-cost/low-experience security resources to engagements which results in minimal value. IT Security Consulting provides these organizations with expert security advisors who are true thought leaders and who understand business risks. Created with the ISO in mind, IT Security Consulting leverages its parent company's proven software skills and experience gained from working with a long list of clients to make consulting engagements faster and more efficient.

IT Security Consulting also eliminates unforeseen expenses by offering various security services at a fixed price. This rivals the approach of traditional security services companies, which expect organizations to enter a consulting relationship with an open checkbook, making it difficult to keep control over expenses. Unique in the industry, IT Security Consulting's fixed-price model allows organizations to get the job done, without overspending.

"While IT Security Consulting is completely separate from Avatier, it offers its clients the benefit of security expertise culled from Avatier's years in the industry," said Nelson Cicchitto, CEO and president, Avatier. "It extends Avatier's model of helping organizations reach their security objectives quickly, cost-effectively and in a way never seen before in the industry." "With its highly talented consultants on staff, IT Security Consulting brings a level of expertise that is atypical of the security services industry," said Ryan Ward, managing director of IT Security Consulting. "This, combined with our fixed-price model, will prove successful as we engage with ISOs that truly need assistance meeting their organization's security goals."

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
