"Being named best compliance / vulnerability assessment solution for 2012 by the GSN Homeland Security Awards committee is an honor and tribute to the entire Agiliance team," said Torsten George, vice president of worldwide marketing and products at Agiliance. "With government agencies relying on multiple layers of silo-based security tools to address cyber threats, they are faced with handling a fire hose of big data feeds that must be correlated and analyzed. Agiliance RiskVision automates data aggregation, normalization, business impact risk scoring, and cross-departmental collaboration to ensure critical vulnerabilities are identified and remediated quickly to dramatically shrink the attack window for flaws to be exploited."
Winners were selected by a panel of objective judges. According to Jacob Goodwin, editor-in-chief of Government Security News: "We received an outstanding group of entries and have handed winners' plaques to an exceptional group of companies and government agencies." Agiliance was honored November 29th among distinguished federal, state, county, and municipal government officials at a large reception banquet at the Washington Convention Center.
According to the Verizon 2012 Data Breach Investigations Report, 92% of breaches were discovered by a third-party and not through internal resources. Agiliance addresses this issue, enabling civilian, defense, and intelligence agencies to achieve continuous monitoring and enabling them to report on risk and security posture in near real time. Agiliance RiskVision gathers data feeds from otherwise silo-based security and IT tools such as SIEMs, configuration management databases, vulnerability scanners, threat data feeds and advisory services, database security management, etc. and then aggregates, normalizes, and correlates this information based on business criticality. By using the Agiliance ticketing system or integrating with leading ticketing and patch management systems, the security operations team can track the progress in mitigating vulnerabilities such that business critical risk is managed effectively.
