RiskSense Platform Named 2016 Risk Management Solution of the Year by Cyber Defense Magazine
Cyber Risk Management Innovator Recognized for Identifying and Prioritizing Remediation of Threats in Near Real Time
Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. - March 1, 2016 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) has named the RiskSense Platform the 2016 Editor’s Choice winner for Best Risk Management Solution. CDM is the industry leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA Conference 2016.
RiskSense will demonstrate how the RiskSense Platform unifies traditional Web, application, and network perimeter defense systems to shorten time-to-remediation and minimize the risk of cyber-attacks at RSA Conference 2016 booth N4340 from February 29 through March 4, 2016 in San Francisco, California.
“Being named the Editor’s Choice for Best Risk Management Solution of the Year by CDM is further proof of RiskSense’s leadership position in the cyber risk management market,” said Torsten George, vice president of global marketing and products at RiskSense. “The RiskSense Platform enables organizations to implement pro-active, real-time cyber risk management to identify, visualize, prioritize, and orchestrate the remediation of cyber risks across the entire computing stack.”
The RiskSense Platform transforms cyber risk management into a pro-active, collaborative, and real-time discipline. The platform embodies the expertise and deep knowledge RiskSense has gained from defending critical networks against the world’s most dangerous cyber adversaries. As former advisors to the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community, RiskSense founders developed Computational Analysis of Cyber Terrorism against the U.S. (CACTUS), Support Vectors Intrusion Detection, Behavior Risk Analysis of Vicious Executables (BRAVE), and the Strike Team Program.
The RiskSense Platform uses patented technology and leverages existing technology investments to contextualize internal security intelligence (e.g., vulnerabilities, control posture, events), external threat data feeds (e.g., exploits, malware, threat actors, reputational intelligence), and business criticality to identify imminent cyber risks and prioritize remediation actions for physical and virtual assets within an organization’s infrastructure. In turn, organizations are offered a risk-based prioritization of the gaps that need to be mitigated first based on their business impact.
Ultimately, RiskSense empowers enterprises and governments to apply proper cyber hygiene, strengthen their cyber security posture, lower remediation costs, dramatically shorten time-to-remediation, and overall reduce the risk of the impact of cyber-attacks on their organization.
“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why RiskSense has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, editor-in-chief of Cyber Defense Magazine.
