Brinqa Delivers Knowledge-Driven Cyber Risk Insights to Eliminate Threats
August 9, 2018 (Newswire.com) –
Brinqa, the industry pioneer in knowledge-driven cyber risk services that activate organizations’ existing security investments, today announced significant enhancements to its best in class Cyber Risk Services to stop configuration issues from being weaponized. By connecting continuous controls monitoring to vulnerability risk and threat data, Brinqa’s new capabilities give organizations the knowledge they need to prioritize and fix policy compliance violations before they are used to exploit vulnerabilities or turn into vulnerabilities.
Billions of dollars are spent on cybersecurity solutions each year with Gartner predicting that worldwide security spending will reach 96 billion dollars in 2018*. Despite the growth in spending, breaches are still happening for the same reasons according to the latest Verizon Breach Investigation Report**. The sheer volume of security findings, delivered by the increasing number of cybersecurity solutions, is driving the need to holistically understand the risk those findings present to the business and incorporate the management of those risks into line of business priorities with a single solution. And while threat and vulnerability management (TVM) solutions have focused on prioritizing security findings and automating resolution for a single security program, TVM alone does not provide the level of cyber risk management required to fix the risks that pose the biggest threat to a business.
“Our customers asked for visibility and a better understanding of cybersecurity programs as they relate to their business. Their ultimate goal is to have line of business owners assimilate security into their processes so they own their risk,” says Amad Fida, CEO of Brinqa. “We connect companies’ security data – now including security compliance violations, business context and threat feeds into a single knowledge source that powers this mainstreamed cyber risk strategy holistically. Executive dashboards communicate overall programs’ effectiveness, and security teams partner with business stakeholders in working with IT and development teams to more effectively manage risk.”
Effective security requires knowledge-driven cyber risk services
Kick-starting the creation of a cyber risk management program usually starts by making a single security program, like vulnerability management, risk-aware. The results will be better prioritization and automation of processes for the vulnerability management team and better efficiencies for the business, but it isn’t enough. By establishing a consistent cyber risk strategy that spans all security solutions and attack surfaces, teams will come together to turn their knowledge-driven insights into targeted, automated and tracked outcomes that vastly improve their security posture. Brinqa’s new capabilities enable this holistic approach to cyber risk management, adding to Brinqa’s already comprehensive set of integrated services that help organizations increase their risk maturity level.
