Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. – August 18, 2016 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that it is a finalist for three awards in the 2016 Risk Management Awards program by UK-based CIR Magazine. The company’s cyber risk management software is a finalist for Risk Management Innovation of the Year, Best Cyber Security Product, and Cyber Security Initiative of the Year.
The international CIR Risk Management Awards are judged by an independent panel of experts who are tasked with recognizing individuals, organizations, and teams that have significantly added to the understanding and practice of risk management. The CIR Risk Management Award winners will be announced at a gala dinner and ceremony on November 10, 2016 at the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair in the United Kingdom.
“Being named a finalist in three categories of the CIR Risk Management Awards underscores the innovations we are bringing to cyber security management with the RiskSense Platform,” said Torsten George, vice president of global marketing and products at RiskSense. “Our unique 360-degree view, assessment, and scoring of cyber threats enables organizations to pro-actively discover and address security gaps that pose the most severe risks to their operations.”
The RiskSense Platform uniquely extracts actionable intelligence from the massive volume of data generated by the patchwork of cyber security products, including vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence feeds, and other complex security systems. This allows organizations to quickly understand their particular cyber risk exposure across a growing attack surface, orchestrate remediation, and monitor the results. This next-gen approach takes them from detection to remediation in minutes versus months, by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality.
