Jim Hare, VP Sales of eGestalt Recognized as a Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN

Creator of Industry's First Managed Compliance Provider Program

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - eGestalt Technologies (, a provider of information technology security, governance, risk management and compliance (IT-GRC) solutions for small to mid-size organizations, today announced that its VP of Worldwide Sales Jim Hare has been named a Channel Chief by the Everything Channel's CRN.

Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. 

In August 2010, eGestalt launched its channel friendly Managed Compliance Provider (MCP) program that enables service providers including value-added resellers (VARs), managed services providers (MSPs) and managed security services providers (MSSPs) to deliver an a high-margin, recurring revenue stream driven managed security and compliance offering.

The MCP program comes complete with its own "Cookbook," a best practices educational resource guide that helps resellers transition to the more profitable managed services model.

Announced in January, SecureGRC SB™ is a patent-pending, multiple award-winning, Cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (Saas) application that helps to meet HIPAA and HITECH privacy and security rules at dramatically less cost and complexity than standard approaches.

SecureGRC's on-demand cloud-based, "pay-as-you-grow" subscription service enables up to 10x reduction in total cost of ownership, which is ideal for cost-conscious small and mid-size organizations.

Says Chris Johnson, CEO of Untangled Solutions of Los Angeles, CA: "Healthcare IT solution providers need a tool to help their medical practice clients with conforming to HIPAA and other compliance standards. eGestalt takes the mystery out of the compliance process. Their cookbook explains step-by-step how to get started with offering a managed compliance service for the channel. eGestalt allows us to automate the audit process and provide tangible evidence of what needs to be addressed and how to address it within a medical practice."

This year's Channel Chiefs were chosen based by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.

This year's Channel Chiefs offer tremendous insight into the who's who of the Channel," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel's voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud this year's Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies."
