EMC's consulting arm is launching an advisory service focused on governance, risk management and compliance. The new security managed advisory services will be delivered as part of the EMC Consulting portfolio.

EMC's consulting division is stepping into the security arena with five risk management advisory services that aim to help customers secure their data while meeting various regulatory and compliance requirements.Traditionally, security offerings from EMC have fallen under the banner of the company's RSA Security business, while EMC handles data storage technology itself.

EMC Consulting would offer customers end-to-end services designed to handle compliance requirements while considering each organization's unique set of business needs, the company announced Feb. 29 at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. The new security managed advisory services will be delivered as part of the EMC Consulting portfolio.

Virtualization, cloud computing, mobile and the emergence of big data applications have dramatically altered how organizations create, deliver and manage information, according to EMC. The openness of information within these new environments can significantly increase an organization's risk. These new security and risk management advisory services are also intended to boost customer confidence about the security of its data.

Overall, EMC's advisory services cover the areas of cloud, information governance, fraud and identity management, GRC, and mobile device security.

The services offer organizations with an "ideal remedy to lock down access control and identify IT infrastructure security gaps before they become problematic, or worse, irrevocably damaging," Chris Christiansen, an analyst with IDC, told CIO Insight sister publication eWEEK.

"Security culpability is no longer the responsibility of just the CISO chief information security officer ," IDC's Christiansen said.
