Edgile and ChosenSecurity Partner to Deliver Best-in-Class Security Solutions to Large Enterprises

Driving Thought Leadership to CISOs to Bring Visibility to On-Demand PKI as the Most Efficient Outsourced Solution

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - ChosenSecurity, Inc., a leading provider of On-Demand Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security services, today announced a partnership with Edgile, a consulting firm specializing in the delivery of high quality consulting and technology services, to combine Edgile's Identity and Access Management consulting practice with ChosenSecurity's On-Demand PKI service. This combination will bring thought leadership to CISOs to drive visibility for ChosenSecurity's On-Demand PKI managed service as an outsourced solution. Enterprises with existing PKI installations can leverage Edgile to migrate to ChosenSecurity's On-Demand PKI service as a significant cost savings alternative.

Edgile's professionals are experts in security and identity management technologies. Combining decades of enterprise-wide IT experience with focus on business value and risk, Edgile delivers tailored security solutions that meet the needs of your business. Edgile's business and technical experts help reduce risks and costs associated with IT security projects. The resulting integrated security platform better leverages existing technologies and is tailored to your business needs.

Large enterprises, particularly in security-conscious and highly regulated industries such as financial services, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals, use PKI (managed in-house or as a service) to issue digital certificates that encrypt information passing across networks. In this manner, PKI customers can secure e-mail, VPNs and business applications. PKI also enables digital signatures that can be used to automate workflow.

ChosenSecurity provides a full range of PKI software and services, including On-Demand PKI. Edgile delivers complementary consulting services that help customers build business justifications and develop strategies to migrate to an On-Demand PKI platform.

"We encounter many enterprises seeking to consolidate multiple PKIs to benefit from the lower costs," said Don Elledge, CEO of Edgile. "Consolidating with ChosenSecurity results in a faster, less expensive implementation for companies that would rather outsource their PKI operations."

"Edgile has a great reputation throughout the industry. Edgile's senior experts assess business risks to craft security strategies that optimize your core security infrastructure," said Dean Coclin, Vice President of Business Development at ChosenSecurity. "We are pleased to work with Edgile to help their clients optimize their security infrastructure by migrating to an On-Demand PKI platform. We're confident that the resulting factor will provide significant cost savings and overall efficiency in operations."
