A year after it signed a contract with the State of Texas, software company Promisec has signed a deal with the State of Alabama.
Promisec's software, which stresses security and regulatory control, will be installed in state government offices, educational facilities, and other public activity centers.
The contract with the State of Alabama is expected to be spread over five years, during which time Promisec will install its software for end-users. The project is worth a few million dollars.
Promisec, founded in 2004, develops software systems that manage and monitor the security of companies' endpoints and organizational network. Promisec supplies software with no need for installation at the end-user station. The software provides warnings if an irregularity in security profile arises. The company was founded by brothers Amir and Hilik Kotler, Doron Offenbach, and Roni Suchowski, and has raised $5 million from private investors and American venture capital fund OCP.
Promisec CEO Amir Kotler views the current agreement as part of the growing demand among governmental institutions for software that control the functioning of end-user systems, and that meet regulatory requirements. "We see a hotting up in the governmental sector," he said.
