nCircle Expands PureCloud Partner Portal with New Managed Services API

New API Enables Seamless Integration of PureCloud Functionality Into Partner Products

SAN FRANCISCO--()--nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management, today announced a new nCircle PureCloud™ API as the latest installment in the company’s portfolio of rapidly expanding partner services. The new API makes it possible for Managed Security Service Partners (MSSPs) to seamlessly integrate PureCloud into their existing processes and management tools. nCircle PureCloud simplifies network security for smaller businesses through the combination of nCircle's proven, enterprise-class vulnerability scanning platform and a unique patent-pending scan technology. Together, these technologies deliver the most accurate, easy-to-use network security assessment tool available.

Ed Colonna, vice president of business development for nCircle noted, “Our new PureCloud API is designed to open the door to new partner opportunities. The API enables a wide range of security partners to tightly integrate PureCloud with their existing product offerings to reach new markets and customers.”

PureCloud’s new API expands existing portal capabilities so security partners can tightly integrate PureCloud into product offerings, creating a seamless user interface and streamlined workflow.

The new PureCloud API allows partners to:

  • Create and manage customer accounts
  • Configure vulnerability scans
  • Schedule scans or run scans on demand
  • Retrieve scan status and results
  • Generate monthly invoices with detailed breakdowns for each customer and transaction
  • Export reports in a variety of formats
  • Automatically populate and update customer account information

nCircle PureCloud now also supports a single sign-on capability allowing partners to deliver a seamless user experience to their customers by launching PureCloud scans from within another application. New co-branding options allow MSSPs to customize the look and feel of the Internet portal, reports and emails.

“Finding vulnerabilities that may exist in internal and external networks is a critical component of helping our customers with security risk assessments,” said Raymond Kahre, director of products and programs for Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, an nCircle MSSP. “We are coupling our risk assessment methodology with the PureCloud vulnerability scanner to produce meaningful and actionable recommendations that reduce security risks. With PureCloud, we can complete a risk assessment remotely, eliminating travel which translates to lower costs for our clients.”

nCircle PureCloud pricing starts at $49 for unlimited scanning of an individual computer for one year, and volume discounts apply. You can scan one computer and receive in-depth security reports free through July 31, 2012.
