RiskSense Named Finalist in 2017 SC Trust Awards
Cyber Risk Management Platform Shortlisted for Best Vulnerability Management Solution
Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. – November 22, 2016 – RiskSense® Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced its RiskSense Platform™ is a finalist for Best Vulnerability Management Solution in the 2017 SC Trust Awards presented by SC Media, publisher of SC Magazine. RiskSense enables organizations to reveal their cyber risk exposure and subsequently reduce the threat window for vulnerabilities by as much as 90 percent.
Now in its 20th year, the SC Awards represent the gold standard of excellence in cyber security. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2017 ceremony on February 14, 2017 in San Francisco, California.
“RiskSense has demonstrated that they are among the best in the industry at Vulnerability Management,” said Illena Armstrong, vice president editorial at SC Media. “Being a Trust award nominee is a special honor as it demonstrates that you are at the top of your game, and your peers know it. Finalists for the Trust awards are selected by a panel of approximately 100 professionals and the SC Magazine product reviews team. It's a high bar to clear and we are proud to acknowledge RiskSense as a finalist.”
“Being selected one of only five finalists for Best Vulnerability Management Solution by the SC Awards judging committee demonstrates how quickly RiskSense has leapfrogged more established players in the market,” said Torsten George, vice president of global marketing and products at RiskSense. “Our holistic approach to vulnerability management, which uses internal security intelligence in combination with external threat data to derive a cyber risk score based on business criticality, prioritizes remediation efforts to dramatically shrink the exploit window for attackers.”
RiskSense is changing the way organizations detect and manage cyber risk, reducing time from detection to remediation from months to minutes by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality. The RiskSense Platform is the first cyber risk management solution with an intelligence-driven approach that enables organizations to pro-actively discover and address security gaps that pose the most severe risks to their operations. RiskSense extracts actionable intelligence from the massive volume of data generated by a patchwork of cyber security products, including vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence feeds, and other complex security systems. This allows enterprises and governments to quickly understand their particular cyber risk exposure across a growing attack surface, quickly orchestrate remediation, and monitor the results. Rather than adding even more security tools, organizations have with RiskSense a new, significantly more efficient and effective approach to enterprise security.
