Inc., the Big Data Risk Company™ and leading independent provider of
integrated solutions for Operational and Security Risk programs, today
announced the release of the Agiliance
NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) Content Pack, the market’s
first commercially available Security Checklist and Best Practices in a
risk management solution. The Agiliance NIST CSF Content Pack is fully
integrated with the company’s RiskVision™
platform, which is in production today for continuous diagnostics and
mitigation (CDM), managing a million assets, prioritizing remediation
for 20 million vulnerabilities, and conducting 100 million daily control
Using the Agiliance NIST CSF Content Pack for RiskVision, organizations
can gather, score, and review their data- and survey-driven control
assessment results. Furthermore, they can identify their control gaps,
take the necessary remediation actions, and gain a comprehensive
measurement of their cyber security risk posture. The Agiliance NIST CSF
Content Pack incorporates all five functions of the Framework Core for
managing cyber security risk – Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and
Recover – and automates:
Assessment of an organization’s current cyber security posture;
Definition of an organization’s target cyber security posture;
Identification of areas for improvement within the context of a
continuous and repeatable process;
Assessment of progress toward the target cyber security posture; and
Information sharing among internal and external stakeholders about
cyber security risk.
“Applying all of the outlined standards, guidelines, and practices of
the NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a considerable challenge that
requires the rethinking of existing processes, including the tools
organizations use to gather and analyze data,” said Torsten George, vice
president of worldwide marketing and products at Agiliance. ”RiskVision
and the Agiliance NIST CSF Content Pack combine pre-packaged
intelligence with the controls, data automation, data aggregation, and a
workflow engine needed to automate security risk management and
strengthen cyber resilience.”
In response to escalating cyber-threats to the nation’s economy and
national security, and mandated by the February 2013 White House
Executive Order 13636, NIST released its Framework
for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity in February
2014. However, applying the NIST
Cybersecurity Framework adds to the volume, velocity, and complexity
of data feeds that must be analyzed, normalized, and prioritized. The
combination of RiskVision and the Agiliance NIST CSF Content Pack
provides organizations automated tools designed to assess, monitor, and
mitigate cyber security risks.
Since 2011, Agiliance has pioneered and established a software segment
called Security Risk Management. The company has developed several
innovations in the areas of cyber systems modeling, threat-based
continuous diagnostics, and operationally efficient remediation. The
company also hosts the industry’s first Cyber
Stress Test tool developed with Robert Bigman, former CISO for the
Agiliance has received more than two dozen industry accolades over the
last 12 months, including the Security Products magazine's 2014
Govies Platinum Award for Best Homeland Security Product of the Year,
2014 Cyber Defense Magazine Most Innovative InfoSec Award for Most
Innovative Risk Management Product, Deloitte 2013 Technology Fast 500
Honoree (#4 in security software), and Government Security News 2013
Homeland Security Award.
The Agiliance NIST CSF Content Pack is available immediately and is
included with all RiskVision subscriptions.
The company will demonstrate RiskVision’s threat-based risk management
capabilities at booth #118 at the Gartner Security & Risk
Management 2014, June 23 – 26, 2014 in National Harbor, MD.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
