HOUSTON, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Direct Line to Compliance (DL2C) announced today that Gartner, Inc. has selected the company for its Cool Vendors in IT/OT Integration 2012 recognition. DL2C is a consulting and software company that assists energy companies to comply with and document this compliance with the North American Reliability Corporation's (NERC) standards.
Federally required for energy companies, compliance with these NERC-issued standards is integral to protecting the security and reliability of the U.S. electric grid.
"We are proud and overjoyed that such a reputable leader of the information technology industry has recognized our uniqueness and written such a laudatory profile of the company," said DL2C Managing Partner, Michael Adeeko. "It's truly an honor to be recognized in Gartner's annual Cool Vendors report."
Gartner is the world's leading information technology research and advisory company. The firm's Cool Vendors in IT/OT Integration is an annual list of companies chosen by Gartner analysts for their innovation.
"What sets DL2C apart from its competition is its ColorCodeIt Methodology," said Gartner Analyst Earl Perkins. "This methodology brings a formulaic and structured approach to reading and understanding the compliance process."
DL2C has revolutionized the NERC compliance process with its ColorCodeIT (CCI) Software. CCI brings unprecedented clarity to the process of preparing for the NERC compliance audit and to the practice of remaining in compliance with NERC's changing standards.
Gartner's Analyst Earl Perkins advises, "Risk and compliance offices in energy and utility enterprises should become more familiar with DL2C's capabilities to assess possible use of their education and auditing capabilities when retrofitting OT networks and security." DL2C's proprietary Ea = NEa + Da formula is at the core of the CCI methodology, which is a permanent solution to simplifying audits and translating NERC standards into straightforward units of instruction.
Unlike other compliance consulting companies, DL2C applies mathematical algorithms and quantifies the values and metrics of NERC standards. The company's CCI methodology ensures completeness and accuracy in evidence, thereby eradicating errors of clarity or interpretation for measurable compliance.
Relying on both its proprietary mathematical algorithm and established engineering practices, DL2C provides what no other organization is capable of: bringing explosive clarity to the NERC compliance process.
