“With cybercrime, malware threats and data breaches on the rise, it is crucial for organizations to stay a step ahead of the next threat, proactively, which is why we selected RiskSense as the Leader in Risk Management” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine. “From a field of 3,000 nominations across the globe, the RiskSense platform stands out for its ability to unify and contextualize internal security intelligence, external threat data and business asset criticality to transform cyber risk management into a proactive, collaborative and real-time discipline that lowers risk across the enterprise.”

“It’s an honor to have been recognized as the Leader in Risk Management by Cyber Defense Magazine at this year’s RSA Conference,” said Jill Kyte, vice president of marketing for RiskSense. “Our analytics-based approach automates the assessment of cyber risk across the entire operational attack surface to quickly prioritize and guide remediation, and monitor the results. The RiskSense platform provides the intelligence organizations need to align their IT resources on fixing the threats that matter most.”

RiskSense has pioneered an intelligence-driven approach to cyber risk management that uses an attacker’s viewpoint, human-interactive A.I. and machine learning to assess an organization’s entire attack surface, including the network, applications, endpoints, databases, IoT devices and OT environments. The RiskSense platform leverages existing technology investments to contextualize internal security intelligence (e.g., vulnerability scanners and configuration management systems) and external threat data (e.g., exploits, malware, threat actors, reputational intelligence) with business criticality. It provides risk-based prioritization of vulnerabilities that need remediation based on their business impact.
