Schaumburg, IL, USA (29 April 2019)—Alvaka Networks will sponsor ISACA’s North America CACS Conference for information systems audit, assurance, control, governance and security professionals, taking place 13-15 May 2019 in Anaheim, CA.

Patchworx by Alvaka Networks is a mature Patch Management as a Service offering. Software patching is both risky and complex, so it is often neglected by organizations. With nearly 50% of companies having experienced at least one data breach in the last few years, Alvaka’s goal is to educate organizations about the crucial need for patch management and to provide a proven enterprise level solution to those organizations.

Oli Thordarson, CEO of Alvaka says, “We are at CACS 2019 because ISACA members are on the front line assessing and auditing security posture and compliance for the important companies around the globe. Many of those members are frequently frustrated by continued inadequacies of patch management results they encounter within the companies they are examining. Patchworx solves that problem by bringing a solution that gets even the most complicated environments patched to zero each month in a cost effective way, while providing the reporting ISACA members and executives need.

IT audit, risk, cybersecurity and governance professionals will gather at the Anaheim Convention Center to examine the transformational roles they play in their organizations. Attendees will learn solutions and strategies, including how assurance, risk, governance and security professionals can advance their careers and impact their enterprises. Disruptive technologies over the last 50 years and in the future of business enterprise, and the evolution of technology careers and ISACA professions, will be featured in conjunction with the ISACA anniversary year.

Alvaka is both a North American CACS Premium Sponsor, as well as an ISACA 50th Enterprise Sponsor. Attendees who want to learn about Alvaka’s Patchworx Patch Management as a Service offering, visit booth 401 during the conference. You can also learn more by attending a weekly Software Patching Webinar.
