CRN Recognizes Sword & Shield as a Need to Know VAR
CRN, an online technology magazine, has selected Sword & Shield as one of the top security Value Added Resellers in the IT security space.
“A CRN Fast Growth 100 and VAR50 company, Sword & Shield was founded in 1997 to offer network security services,” the magazine reports. “Based in Knoxville, Tenn., with offices in Lexington, Ky., Washington, D.C., and Alexandria Va., Sword & Shield focuses on forensics, e-discovery, risk and compliance.”
The magazine reports that mobility, back up, cloud computing, and compliance are among the areas where solution providers are picking up keen interest from customers. Companies don’t always have the appropriate manpower to put behind preparing for audits, so it poses operational and security worries for everyone. This is where a VAR like Sword & Shield can help. Many security professionals do welcome compliance audits — most of these things should be done anyway – and compliance makes businesses more secure.
While some companies offer web and network security services as an add-on to their financial auditing or IT consulting practices, with Sword & Shield security is our core business. We provide web application and network security assessments, security risk and compliance services, forensic and eDiscovery services along with best-of breed security products. With a highly trained professional staff, Sword & Shield has extensive experience supporting corporate IT environments, law enforcements agencies, attorneys and mission-critical federal systems.
