ObjectSecurity, the leader for model-driven security management today announced that it signed a contract with Promia, Inc., a leading provider of intrusion detection and security technologies to government and industry. As part of the contract, Promia and ObjectSecurity will jointly develop a novel technology that makes it easier for the utilities sector to achieve regulatory compliance with The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Critical Infrastructure Protection Standards. It supports decision making, produces audit documentation, detects anomalies, and supports policy-driven requirements management

The technology will include the products ObjectSecurity OpenPMF 2.0 and Promia Raven. ObjectSecurity and Promia already announced a strategic partnership mid February 2007 and signed a mutual reseller agreement late March 2007. The agreement makes market access for ObjectSecurity in the U.S. and for Promia in Europe easier.

Dr. Ulrich Lang, CEO and co-founder of ObjectSecurity commented: “Regulatory compliance is a major challenge and cost factor for the utilities sector today. Our joint solution reduces risk, cost, and complexity”.  John Mullen, CEO and co-founder of Promia added: ”We are again working with ObjectSecurity in important areas to extend protection for critical resources.”
