Align, a global provider of cybersecurity services and technology infrastructure solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with cyber risk platform provider RootSecure. The partnership enables Align to bolster and diversify its cybersecurity capabilities, the company said in a prepared statement.

With the partnership, Align has released cybersecurity tools designed to complement and enhance the Align Cybersecurity advisory services practice. These tools include the Risk CSR (Continuous Scanning and Reporting) application, which is built on RootSecure technology.

In addition, the RootSecure Cyber Risk Platform has been integrated into Align's cybersecurity client portal. This integration provides end users with technical summaries of risk data uncovered by RootSecure.

Why Did Align Partner with RootSecure?

Cybersecurity attacks are increasing in both size and sophistication, and organizations require advanced cybersecurity strategies and tools to limit the risk of breaches and assess, detect and remediate cyberattack vectors, according to Align.

Ultimately, the RootSecure partnership helps Align raise its cybersecurity capabilities "to a new level," Chief Operating Officer Vinod Paul said. RootSecure now empowers Align to gain greater visibility into customers' cybersecurity posture, Paul noted, and understand how to help customers minimize the risk of cyberattacks.

The partnership also enables Align to upgrade its cybersecurity advisory services, Paul indicated. Moreover, the partnership allows Align to further expand its services portfolio, Paul pointed out, and extend its cybersecurity market reach.
