According to a recent press release, “RiskSense® Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced it will unveil at the upcoming RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco the first integrated platform that allows governments and enterprises to identify cyber risk exposure across their network, endpoint, application, and database layers. In addition to continuously assessing, scoring, and prioritizing cyber risks, RiskSense assists in quickly orchestrating remediation and validating the results.”
The release goes on, “Organizations face an uphill battle when it comes to cyber security, since their attack surface has expanded significantly with the proliferation of applications, distributed databases, cloud services, and mobile devices (e.g., tablets, mobile phones, Bluetooth devices, and smart watches). It is expected to balloon even further with the advent of the Internet of Things (e.g., smart meters in office facilities), microservices, and Software Defined Networks. This is confirmed by the Global Risk Management Survey, which revealed that 84% of cyber-attacks today target the application layer and not the network layer. As a result, organizations need to expand their coverage to include these new areas.”
It continues, “To address these challenges, RiskSense has developed a pro-active approach to cyber risk management that continuously identifies, scores, visualizes, prioritizes, and orchestrates the remediation of cyber risks across a growing attack surface. The RiskSense Platform™ 7.0 enables organizations to manage their cyber risks by unifying and contextualizing internal and external security intelligence into a single view, and then correlating these findings with business criticality to drive risk-based remediation. It is the first product to span the network, endpoints, databases, and applications as a unified attack surface.”
