Platform chosen based on comprehensive features, alignment with industry standards, and guidance that fosters program development and certification readiness
STAMFORD, CT, May 13, 2019 — EXTEND Resources, a leading professional services and solutions company, announced today that Overwatch Group has selected OnTrack™ 27001 to manage the company’s information security program. A module of the OnTrack™ compliance management platform, OnTrack™ 27001 was the exclusive choice of Overwatch to support the company’s goal of further developing its information security management system and becoming ISO 27001 certified.
Overwatch partners with organizations to develop and implement IT strategies, systems, and processes that help solve their clients’ biggest challenges, reduce expenses, and increase agility. With information security at the forefront of both client projects and vendor risk assessments, the Overwatch leadership team wanted to enhance its security posture in order to continue to meet the security requirements of their clients, maintain a competitive advantage in the marketplace, and spark new growth opportunities.
The company needed a user-friendly platform that would enable rapid development of its information security management system (ISMS), simplify management of their ISMS, and foster compliance with ISO requirements leading up to certification audits.
“Choosing OnTrack™ was a no brainer. As a company that is just beginning our ISO 27001 journey, the compliant policy templates in the OnTrack™ library are a huge time and cost saver for us,” said Brandon Marks, Overwatch CEO. “Plus, OnTrack™ covers every element required for ISO compliance. Using OnTrack as our guide, our information security manager can efficiently perform the tasks – and capture the information –needed to meet audit requirements and support a very robust security posture.”
EXTEND Resources specializes in helping organizations develop holistic information security programs that strengthen their security posture and deliver the data protection their clients require. Frustrated by the lack of feature-rich, easy-to-use applications to support their clients’ needs, information security and data privacy experts from EXTEND developed the OnTrack™ platform. From the dashboard-style interface, users can access the system’s pre-loaded, ISO-compliant processes, policies, and procedures, which can be seamlessly updated from the platform to match the unique needs and requirements of any organization.
“As an experienced user of Overwatch’s infrastructure services, the company has responded to our extensive information security requirements and has a keen awareness of information security,” noted Antonella Commiato, CTO and Chief Information Security Officer of EXTEND Resources. “Overwatch’s selection of OnTrack™ demonstrates the company’s commitment to a holistic infosec approach by aligning its policies, processes, and practices with the internationally accepted standards of ISO. We look forward to our continued work with the Overwatch team.”
