DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2017) - Cytellix, the cybersecurity division of IMRI, announces a strategic partnership with The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center (The Center). In this partnership, The Center will market and connect Cytellix's managed security service directly with Michigan's small- and medium-sized manufacturing businesses. Cytellix's managed cyber security service, which enables customers to meet compliance with NIST SP 800-171 cyber requirements, is a turnkey solution that brings a complete cyber assessment, vulnerability scanning, continuous network behavioral analytics, remediation best practices and a plan of action as an annual subscription.

NIST requires the federal supply chain customer base to meet cybersecurity compliance by December 31, 2017. The supply chain must complete assessments, documentation, remediation and real-time awareness of any cyber vulnerabilities within 30 days of any contract award.

Elliot Forsyth, the vice president of business operations for The Center, is actively educating the state of Michigan on the cyber requirements for its customers. "I am pleased to add Cytellix to our team, which brings subject matter expertise in cybersecurity. Its approach to helping our customers meet compliance requirements for NIST Special Publication 800-171 is both affordable and reduces internal challenges for supply chain manufacturers to understand these cyber guidelines. Cytellix provides a standards-based, seamless approach to both cyber-preparedness and easy-to-understand solutions for the real world."

Brian Berger, the executive vice president of commercial cybersecurity for Cytellix, stresses the important relationship between cyber-preparedness and business development. "The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is wholly dedicated to leading Michigan manufacturers to success. Cytellix is privileged to partner with an organization whose forward thinking will be invaluable to its clients' potential for sustained business growth. We feel confident that our combined expertise will position Michigan manufacturers to not only be cyber-ready, but prepared for new contract opportunities as well."
