(NASDAQ:JAWZ) a leading provider of secure information management solutions is pleased to announce that it has once again been selected as Union Townships IT Security partner to perform Managed Security for Union Township, New Jersey.

An enterprise-wide systems and security sweep enable Union Township to gain and then maintain, through JAWZ, a worry-free operation.

Captain Paul Weisenbacher of Union Township stated, “An added benefit of contracting with JAWZ is that their technical centre monitors our network and firewall 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As our network grows to include additional resources and users, JAWZ technical staff continues to provide the expertise necessary to maintain a functional and secure municipal network.”

Robert Kubbernus, Chairman and CEO, JAWZ Inc. said, “We’re pleased to have been chosen by Union Township as their IT Security Partner. JAWZ security experts were able to provide Union Township with a secure, tested, end-to-end solution that gives the Township peace of mind to focus on its core activities with confidence.”

Weisenbacher added, “By partnering with JAWZ, we achieve a greater Return on Investment than by trying to maintain our IT Security in-house.”
