Agiliance Sets New Threshold for Automating Security Data Collection
(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Agiliance®, Inc., the leading independent provider of Integrated Risk Management solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced that it has expanded its portfolio of data connectors by more than 45 percent from just nine months ago. With more than 50 connectors, Agiliance Agiliance RiskVision™ provides the industry’s broadest range of security data collection capabilities. This broad and deep information gathering infrastructure enables organizations to gain insights into their risk and compliance posture by aggregating and correlating data from otherwise silo-based security and IT tools.
The rising tide of insider and advanced persistent threats, mounting regulatory pressure, and the impact of big security data on an organization’s operational efficiency have led many progressive organizations to adopt a “risk-based” approach to security. This approach encompasses continuous (security) monitoring and frequent data assessments (e.g., on a weekly basis). It also necessitates automated security data collection, aggregation, and normalization from a variety of sources such as security information and event management (SIEM), asset management, threat feeds, and vulnerability scanners.
The Agiliance RiskVision Connector portfolio protects an organization’s investment in existing best-of-breed security and IT tools and provides for a broad coverage of categories:
