eGestalt Promotes PCI Security and HIPAA Compliance to MSPs
eGestalt Technologies, which develops PCI compliance and HIPAA security tools, is opening its arms to managed services providers (MSPs). But what makes eGestalt’s SecureGRC platform unique in a market full of security and compliance solutions for MSPs? eGestalt’s VP of Sales Jim Hare and President Anupam Sahair offered MSPmentor some insights.
eGestalt’s latest SecureGRC release, version 11, is a cloud-based security and compliance solution. “We enhanced the regulation content with other enriched content such as best practices and procedures,” said Sahai. “And it can be scaled from a single user all the way to a large enterprise depending on sophistication of the workflow.”
eGestalt’s goal was to create a platform that MSPs can easily adopt, regardless of their domain expertise. To that end, version 11 includes marketing, on-demand, demo and technical training.
“We spent a lot of time and effort understanding how our partners can take this to market,” said Hare, who noted that eGestalt’s go-to-market strategy is completely channel-based. “We do not compete with our partners.”
Among the other key takeaways:
- eGestalt is completely cloud-based so partners and end-users don’t have to buy any hardware.
- It’s available in a small business version and an enterprise version, so small businesses don’t have to buy platforms that are tailored to larger companies.
- SecureGRC for enterprise customers costs $5,000 per year and can go up depending on the number of users and frameworks. SecureGRC SB (for small businesses) costs $750 per year. Channel partners receive a 25 percent discount on both solutions.
No doubt, corporate compliance remains a hot topic for VARs and MSPs. In particular, we’ll be watching to see if eGestalt catches on with MSPs serving the financial services and health care verticals.
