As enterprises grow more digitized, information security risks are escalating. These risks—which result from cyberattacks, failures in IT assets, or third-party vendor vulnerabilities—can often amplify the impact of other enterprise risks such as strategic risks or reputational risks.
Meanwhile, as the range of IT assets deployed on both internal and external networks increases, so does the attack surface area. To guard against these attacks, many enterprises leverage third-party vulnerability scanners that monitor enterprise systems for technical vulnerabilities. But the challenge lies in aggregating and correlating the data from these scanners in such a way that the security function can fully understand and respond to the threats and vulnerabilities ahead.
With a range of complex and varied approaches available to manage these requirements, it can be difficult to choose the right one. However, a growing number of enterprises are opting for a streamlined, integrated, and structured approach to IT and security risk management – one that can help them effectively understand the risk and threat landscape affecting their operations, and take proactive steps to strengthen business resilience.Download Solution Brief

IT Risk Management
Streamline IT risk identification, assessment, mitigation, and monitoring. Understand the relationships between IT risks, assets, processes, and controls. Evaluate and track IT risks efficiently using industry standard IT risk assessment frameworks.
Document the issues that arise, and enable a closed-loop process of issue investigation, root cause analysis, and remediation. Leverage user-configurable risk reports, risk heat maps, and role-based executive dashboards to convert raw IT risk data into actionable business intelligence that can guide decision-making.
Threat and Vulnerability Management
Reinforce IT security by aggregating and correlating threats and vulnerabilities across business-critical information assets. Consolidate these assets in a centralized library by integrating with external Configuration Management Databases (CMDBs). Map the IT assets to business entities, threats, and vulnerabilities.
Integrate with multiple external and end-point IT security and infrastructure management tools and security intelligence feeds to identify and prioritize IT risks. Monitor the threat landscape, zero-day advisories, and threat bulletins by subscribing to RSS or email-based threat alerts.
Classify and document the issues arising from threat and vulnerability management in an organized manner. Create real-time intelligence on threats and vulnerabilities through advanced graphical dashboards and reports with drill-down capabilities.
