TekStream Achieves SOC 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance Certification

TekStream’s information security practices, policies, and procedures are officially approved to meet the SOC 1 and 2 trust principles criteria for security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality

ATLANTA, GA, January 10, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — TekStream announced today that the company has achieved the Service Organization Control (SOC) 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 compliance certification, an attestation standard defined by the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA), certifying that TekStream’s information security practices, policies, and procedures are officially approved to meet the SOC 1 and 2 trust principles criteria for security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality.

In today’s global economy, more and more companies begin to outsource core business operations and activities to outside vendors. Service providers must have sufficient controls and safeguards in place when hosting or processing customer data. With SOC certification, customers can now be confident that TekStream has the controls and auditing in place to maintain the security, availability, and confidentiality of their systems. TekStream is organized to handle the data privacy concerns of the largest enterprises in highly regulated industries.

Customers are no longer looking to maintain an expensive internal team of architects, developers, support personnel, admins, and infrastructure experts for critical applications. TekStream’s Support and Managed Services takes this burden off customer teams, so they can focus on growth while leaving the IT details to us.”

Press Release: TekStream Makes 2018 INC. 5000 List For Fourth Consecutive Year

Press Release: TekStream Makes 2018 INC. 5000 List For Fourth Consecutive Year

For the 4th Time, Atlanta-based Technology Company Named One of the Fastest-growing Private Companies in America with Three-Year Sales Growth of 129%

ATLANTA, GA, August 16, 2018 – Atlanta-based technology company, TekStream Solutions, is excited to announce that for the fourth time in a row, it has made the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This prestigious recognition comes again just seven years after Rob Jansen, Judd Robins, and Mark Gannon left major firms and pursued a dream of creating a strategic offering to provide enterprise technology software, services, solutions, and sourcing. Now, they’re a part of an elite group that, over the years, has included companies such as Chobani, Intuit, Microsoft, Oracle, Timberland, Vizio, and Zappos.com.

“Being included in the Inc. 5000 for the fourth straight year is something we are truly proud of as very few organizations in the history of the Inc. 5000 list since 2007 can sustain the consistent and profitable growth year over year needed to be included in this prestigious group of companies,” said Chief Executive Officer, Rob Jansen. “Our continued focus and shift of our services to helping customers leverage Cloud-based technologies and Big Data solutions have provided us with a platform for continued growth and allowed TekStream to provide extremely value-added solutions to our portfolio of industry-leading customers.”

This year’s Inc. 5000 nomination comes after TekStream has seen a three-year growth of over 129%, and 2018 is already on pace to continue this exceptional growth rate. In addition, the company has added 30% more jobs over the last 12 months.

“We’ve seen a significant wave of cloud digital transformation requests coming into this year. Customers acknowledge that running legacy software systems in their own data centers managed by expensive full-time resources is a cost model that is no longer competitive. Moving systems to cheaper cloud platforms, dropping on-premise costs, and invoking the unlimited innovation potential provided by the cloud allows customers to refocus and enhance their core business. They all know they have to make the journey, they need a team to help show them the way.” stated Judd Robins, Executive Vice President of Sales.

To qualify for the award, companies had to be privately owned, established in the first quarter of 2014 or earlier, experienced a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent, and garnered revenue between $2 million and $300 million in 2017.

“The increased focus on hiring both commercially and federally along with a changing candidate market has necessitated the need for creative and scalable recruiting solutions,” stated Mark Gannon, Executive Vice President of Recruitment. “This award and recognition is a testament to our team’s adaptive ability to deliver superior recruiting service across multiple solution offerings. We look forward to continued growth and successes in 2019!”

WebCenter Content – Admin Applet Fix With Java Security

TekTalkBlogHeader

 

by: Sanjay Sen, Developer, TekStream Solutions, Webcenter Content Optimization

The Problem:

When users login to UCM and navigate to the UCM’s Admin Applets, they may experience that the Admin Applet icons do not load (as shown below).

Note: Conducted using Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. The installed Java version on the user’s local machine was Java 7 update 51.

1

Part of the reason for this is because the applets run on a lower version of Java (ideally Java 6 update 27; however, this is not confirmed as many users on the Oracle forum have described having lower versions of Java and yet experiencing this issue). Eventually it becomes a hit or miss situation. The downgrading process is also cumbersome and can take some time trying to install the correct version of Java until you have it finally working.

There is an alternative fix to this problem – enabling a Java security access to the UCM’s URL implicitly.  The steps below outline this process:

Step 1:

Click Start from the windows taskbar and navigate to “Control Panel.”

Step 2:

In Control Panel, click on “Java.”

2

Step 3:

Under the Java Control Panel, navigate to the Security Tab.

3

Step 4:

By default “Enable Java content in the browser” show be checked à Make sure that it is.

4

Step 5:

Security Level should be set to “High” by default à Make sure that it is.

5

Step 6:

In the “Exception Site List” click “Edit Site List…”

6

Step 7:

A new window will pop-up “Exception Site List” click on “Add.”

7

Step 8:

Enter http://localhost:16200/cs/idcplg.

Click “OK.” (P.S – you will notice an unlocked icon. It is telling you that this site is at security risk – totally OK!)

8

Step 9:

Another pop-up window will appear, asking you for final permissions to give access to that web location.  Click “Continue.”

9

Step 10:

You should now see the URL in the list. Click “OK”.

Try to reload the Admin Applet in UCM, and see the magic!
