Cloud platforms are enabling new, complex business models and orchestrating more globally based integration networks than many analyst and advisory firms predicted. Cloud options give organizations the high-level functionality of enterprise software, without the maintenance of hosting it themselves. The benefits of cloud range from ease of updates to cost control.
Cohesive Solutions partners with providers who specialize in taking Maximo Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) to the cloud. This month, we interviewed our partner, Projetech, a Gold IBM Business Partner who provides an ISO 27001 certified Maximo as a Service (MaaS) solution.
Projetech, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio is a privately held Software as a Service (SaaS) provider of IBM Maximo® asset management software. Projetech is an IBM Gold Business Partner with IBM Software, Inc., and an authorized reseller of IBM Maximo® software and services.

Security is a top a concern when moving applications to a SaaS solution. How does Projetech ease those concerns?
Projetech takes threats to the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of its clients' information seriously. As such, Projetech is an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified provider whose Information Security Management System (ISMS) has received third-party accreditation from the International Standards Organization. Most recently, we have deployed a suite of new security and recovery solutions to stay ahead of an ever-evolving information technology and security ecosystem. Which include, an enterprise level, next generation FortiGate firewall from Fortinet. Additionally, Projetech has deployed a new Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool from AlienVault to provide advance security analytics and detection. To take advantage of these new enterprise level security tools and better protect all networks and systems, Projetech has redesigned its network utilizing VMMare advanced networking and security capabilities. Lastly, to protect all Projetech systems and improve overall disaster recovery capabilities Projetech has deployed a new enterprise level backup and replication solution from Veeam Software.
These new security and disaster recovery solutions combined with Projetech’s ISO 27001 certification (which is a framework of policies and procedures around an organization's information risk management process) uniquely positions Projetech to be versatile and quickly adapt to the ever-changing security landscape. Projetech is committed to continually improving our systems and processes to offer the best possible environment for our partners and clients.
