Toronto, ON Canada (PressExposure) February 05, 2008 -- Resolver Inc., a recognized leader in Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software solutions, announced today that they have chosen to move hosting of their world class GRC software solutions to Fusepoint Managed Services. Fusepoint, the leading provider of outsourced managed IT and infrastructure services to the mid market in Canada, delivers the highest levels of managed IT services and business continuity solutions for leading edge software companies like Resolver.
With Resolverâs ever expanding list of fortune 1000 clients, ensuring a secure and certified hosting environment is crucial. Resolver prides itself on providing the highest quality experience for clients with their products, part of which includes server reliability and security. Resolver was one of the first GRC vendors to provide a completely SaaS (Software as a Service) option to their customers. The SaaS model is gaining increasing momentum due to the extremely low cost of ownership and speed of implementation.
âAs Resolver is a GRC software solutions provider, it is very important that we ensure our clients receive the highest standards of security and reliability for their sites. Fusepoint allows us to do this with confidence,â said Steve Taylor, President, Resolver Inc.
âAfter careful consideration of several providers, Resolver has chosen to move our software applications to Fusepointâs managed hosting environment. This decision was based on a number of criteria, including level of service, security and Fusepointâs SAS 70 Type II Certification,â said James Patterson, Vice President Technology, Resolver Inc.
Under the terms of the agreement Fusepoint will provide a fully managed environment in which its certified technical support team will manage all elements of the infrastructure, including the hardware, operating system, database, firewall security, bandwidth, data back-up and end-to-end monitoring and reporting. In addition Resolver will be able to leverage the investment Fusepoint has made in the SAS 70 audit, which applies professional standards to rigorously assess the internal controls of service organizations such as Fusepoint.
âTo realize the level of performance a company such as Resolver demands, a service provider must deliver an unwavering commitment to locking down technical processes,â said George Kerns, President and CEO of Fusepoint. âTo meet that end, Fusepoint has achieved the highest available standards for measuring and improving data center operations and management, namely CICA 5970, SAS 70 (Type II) audits as well as Tier 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance.â
