Strategic Insurance Software (SIS), maker of Partner XE, a leading agency management system for independent insurance agents, announced today it has received the CompTIA Security Trustmark™ credential. CompTIA is a respected industry credential that signifies its adherence to best practices for information security.

“Earning this credential identifies SIS as a business that meets or exceeds the best information security practices the IT industry has to offer,” said Nancy Hammervik, senior vice president, industry relations, CompTIA. “They consistently follow best practices by helping companies to identify regulatory compliance gaps and address problem areas in security policies, processes and planning.”

The Trustmark was developed by CompTIA, the non-profit association for the information technology industry, in collaboration with industry experts and leaders, to identify technology businesses that use the security processes identified by the IT industry as generally accepted best practices.

Alex Deak, CEO of SIS, is pleased to demonstrate SIS’ dedication to the security of its partner agencies’ data: “Achievement of the CompTIA Trustmark is a further demonstration of our commitment to security and operational consistency.”

SIS was evaluated in areas such as security technologies, including firewalls, anti-virus/ malware/ spyware and intrusion detection; vulnerability assessment detection; data encryption; technical employee knowledge/expertise; security clearances and background checks; physical and hardware security; and permissions, passwords and other security requirements.
