Agiliance®, Inc., the leading independent provider of integrated solutions for Operational and Security Risk programs, today announced 985% growth over successive trailing-twelve-month periods in RiskVision™ Managed Risk-as-a-Service (M-RaaS) offerings for Cloud Risk, Cyber-Threat Risk, and Vendor Risk Management. RiskVision M-RaaS is a secure cloud service using the award-winning RiskVision 7 platform, which sets the standard of care for real-time, big data risk management automation.
Agiliance established itself in large enterprises and government agencies over the past few years. Those customers that have licensed RiskVision include:
- 4 of the 12 largest European diversified financial services organizations;
- 3 of the 8 largest North American financial services outsourcers;
- 3 of the 5 largest North American nuclear energy utilities;
- 2 of the 3 largest global life sciences firms; and
- 8 of the 14 largest US government civilian agencies.
“RiskVision’s momentum across many sectors indicates C-suite buyers want a production-proven risk management architecture that adapts quickly to new users, use cases, and requirements but also scales cloud delivery with big data,” said Joe Fantuzzi, president and chief executive officer at Agiliance. “RiskVision delivers on this promise: from simplicity of content changes, to visualization of workflows, to virtualization and clustering, to application performance, to guaranteeing customizations work when upgrading.”
Agiliance bellwether accounts are fueling trickle-down wins of Agiliance customers who start with single use cases, both in large and small to medium enterprises. Quick, efficient, and secure access to Agiliance M-RaaS delivers enterprise-class, cost-effective solutions to a broader clientele without their need to hire resources.
For Cloud Risk Management
- Proofpoint, Inc. selected RiskVision over 4 competitors to achieve FedRAMP certification to deliver its email and information protection cloud services to the US federal government.

For Cyber-Threat Risk Management
- Fiserv, Inc. selected RiskVision M-RaaS over 3 competitors for its vulnerability data management program, which may include data integration with HP ArcSight ESM, Tripwire Enterprise for Security Configuration Management, Qualys QualysGuard, and BMC Remedy. This cloud service uses the same data model already in production on premise for RiskVision use cases in Enterprise Risk, Operational Risk, Regulatory Compliance, Legal and Security Policy Standards, and Application Life Cycle Security.
- A large European pharmaceutical firm chose RiskVision Threat and Vulnerability Management over EMC Archer and others for research security operations, integrating Jumpbox GLPI for IT Asset Management, Qualys QualysGuard, and Rapid7 Nexpose Enterprise for vulnerabilities, as well as Atlassian JIRA ticketing for IT Service Management.

- A large US federal government mortgage agency purchased RiskVision M-RaaS to achieve regulatory compliance on its third-party vendors. This augments RiskVision use cases for Application Risk and Vulnerability and Threat Management already in production on premise.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
