Your certification or validation was a significant investment of both time and money for your company. While a certification or validation can be a substantial revenue generator for your company, it will only be so if it keeps up with any changes added to your product. Over time your product will undoubtedly be enhanced, whether by new features or by bug fixes. Given the care and effort you have invested in your product development strategy, it is critical to also have a product revalidation strategy in order to maintain a validation or certification on your currently available products.
Maintaining your security validation isn’t something your company can let slide – not when your competitors offer up-to-date validated and certified products. Don’t you want to compete with your most recent release? The cost and effort of revalidating or recertifying is only a fraction of what your initial validation may have cost. But how do you get started?
On Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 11:45 EST, Corsec will host a webinar on “Maximizing Your Certification Investment.” Corsec COO Amy Nicewick and Lead Engineer Darryl Johnson will discuss topics including:
