WBENC Certified Women-Owned Cybersecurity Consultancy Business Partner Solutions Partners with Outpost24 to Deliver Full Stack Security Assessment Solutions


Outpost24’s continuous pen test capabilities further enhance BPS’s security offering by bringing next-generation security testing for government and highly regulated Industries


Naperville, IL – July 8, 2020 - Outpost24, an innovator in identifying and managing cybersecurity exposure for developers, today announced a new partnership with the 15 year old Cyber Security Firm,  Business Partner Solutions (BPS), the only women-owned security consultancy in the Southwest, to bring continuous full stack security assessment across infrastructure, web applications, cloud environments and wireless airspace for critical industries to tighten cyber exposure and maintain compliance status with minimal effort.


It is well known within the security industry that web applications are the number one attack vector for data breaches. This highlights the importance for organizations to frequently scan for vulnerabilities in their web applications and keep up with the latest patches, but also ensuring that the security of the infrastructure where the application is hosted is considered as part of the risk management program. The new partnership between Outpost24 and BPS will encourage federal states, local governments, and regulated industries to take an integrated approach to vulnerability management and application security and automate security testing across the web application development lifecycle to increase efficiency.


“As organizations are increasingly adding new web applications into their networks on a daily basis, they need to ensure they are not compromising security. This involves taking a ‘full stack’ approach which means security is built into every layer of the product stack, limiting the cyber risks faced by users. Additionally, research has also shown that the cost to correct vulnerabilities is much smaller at an early stage of the development process,” said Bob Egner, at Outpost24. “Our new partnership with BPS means their customers will be aware of security risks earlier on and will embrace secure be design principles, which will significantly improve web application security.”


BPS is a leading security consultancy and the sole woman-owned security company in the region which is uniquely positioned to provide organizations with a strong commitment when it comes to supporting women in technology and diversity. They have built a reputation for solving difficult security and compliance problems by delivering world-class solutions for the healthcare industry, public utilities, retail, finance, and other highly regulated industries. The partnership will allow them to further enhance their offering by providing next-generation application testing giving a more complete view of web application with easy-to-understand reports covering threats, scenarios, and mitigation actions.


“We are very excited to announce our partnership with Outpost24 as it will help tackle a growing security issue many organizations are facing today. By integrating and automating security testing across the software development process and helping developers and security teams understand more about attack surface, so they can significantly reduce risks, save money and improve efficiencies,” said Katherine Bluma, Founder at BPS.

SecZetta Strengthens Commitment to Women in Cybersecurity Signing Two New Partnerships with WBENC Certified Women-Owned Cybersecurity Companies


Business Partner Solutions and LiquidPC Deepen SecZetta’s Partner Expertise

FALL RIVER, MA - June 1, 2020 - SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity risk management solutions, today announced that it has signed two new partnerships with Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certified cybersecurity companies, Business Process Solutions (BPS), a trusted advisor in security consulting, and LiquidPC, a global distributor and a trusted advisor to a large variety of diverse product companies. These partnerships both deepen the bench of resources available to SecZetta customers and bring with them the additional benefits offered by promoting women in cybersecurity.


“SecZetta is dedicated to advocating for women in the cybersecurity industry and is working to ensure that our go-to-market strategy reflects that commitment,” said David Pingnolet, CEO and founder, SecZetta. “By partnering with leading WBENC and Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) certified companies like BPS and LiquidPC, we are able to bring the value of SecZetta’s solutions to organizations supporting diversity suppliers.”


While statistics have been gradually improving, a report by Cybersecurity Ventures states that women make up just 20% of the cybersecurity workforce, while an (ISC)2 study, brings that number closer to a still unsatisfactory 25%. Advocating for more women in cybersecurity not only brings with it the obvious benefits of diversity in leadership and problem-solving skills but also helps address the severe resource gap within the industry. For SecZetta, an effective commitment to diversity extends across in-house employment practices to business partner opportunities. We believe advocating for women and women-owned companies are part of an industry-wide shared responsibility and will help ensure that there are adequate cybersecurity resources going forward.

“At BPS, which is also California Public Utility Certified (CPUC) and Woman Small Business (WSOB) certified, we have built a reputation for solving difficult security and compliance problems by delivering world-class solutions for the healthcare industry, public utilities, and other highly-regulated industries,” said Katherine Bluma, CEO, and founder, BPS. “As the sole woman-owned cybersecurity company in the Southwest, United States, BPS is uniquely able to provide organizations looking to partner with diversity suppliers with SecZetta’s Third-Party Identity Risk solution.”


“For more than 20 years, LiquidPC has promoted a service-first business culture that has made us the partner of choice for vendors wanting exceptional hands-on service and operational expertise,” said Loretta Sivret, co-founder, owner, and CEO. “This new partnership allows us to bring SecZetta’s industry’s first, Third-Party Identity Risk solution, to market with the advantages that only a certified diversity provider can offer.”
