The Prevalent Story Print E-mail

Prevalent Networks was founded in January 2004 with two goals. First, to work with the leaders in information security, compliance, risk management to deliver "information anywhere, security everywhere".  And second, to do "whatever it takes" to create value for our clients.  As the company has grown, these goals have continued to be the basis by which the company is managed.  Today, Prevalent Networks remains relevant and innovative by creating powerful software and services solutions like Prevalent Vendor Risk Manager and delivering compliance and risk solutions in the cloud with Prevalent Compliance as a Service (PCaaS).

By leveraging Prevalent's association with leading technology partners, like Symantec, Prevalent is able to deliver industry leading technology solutions tailored to our clients needs.  Prevalent Networks professional services offers consulting engagements led by industry experts with deep knowledge and experience.  Whether you are looking for a vulnerability assessment, data-loss risk assessment, compliance policy review, incident response plan, or one of many other areas of expertise, Prevalent can help.  Additionally, the company has developed packaged, fixed-priced service solutions like Prevalent's SEP Jump-start which delivers a secure Symantec Endpoint Protection foundational architecture in less time with a known, competitive pricing model.

In 2010 Prevalent launched new software technology to bolster its security and compliance offerings.  Prevalent Policy Portal is an end-user policy management interface that integrates tightly with Symantec Control Compliance Suite Policy Manager to enhance the experience of policy life-cycle management.  Prevalent Policy Portal allows for the efficient delivery, acceptance, search, use, exception management, and increase effectiveness of written policy in a simple, easy to use, customizable interface.

In 2011 Prevalent launched Prevalent Vendor Risk Manager to help organizations reduce third party data loss risks.  The system automates the often manual vendor assessment process and integrates directly with Symantec Control Compliance Suite for even more powerful third party risk analysis.  PVRM takes the guesswork out of vendor assessment by creating standard tiering structure for the organization, a standardized assessment workflow, Shared Assessment content, evidence collection, risk scoring, and reporting. 

Additionally, as clients have demanded different ways to purchase and operationalize compliance and risk management technology, Prevalent has developed cloud delivered, managed services that marry leading edge technology hosted in Prevalent's cloud environment and run by our knowledgeable and experienced staff.  The result is reduced time to value, reduced infrastructure requirements, and increased security and compliance readiness.  Prevalent Compliance as a Service (PCaaS) is a set of compliance service modules that solve key compliance issues related to policy management, procedural management, and technical standards evaluations.
