Agiliance Expands Its Threat-Based, Real-Time Risk Remediation With CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence

Agiliance®, Inc., the Big Data Risk Company™ and leading independent provider of integrated solutions for Operational and Security Risk programs, today announced the interoperability of its award-winning RiskVision™ software platform with CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence. The strength of CrowdStrike’s threat intelligence platform extends RiskVision’s most comprehensive threat correlation capabilities in the industry. Data from Falcon Intelligence will enable customers to minimize their cyber risks posed by external threats as well as respond and remediate swiftly to emerging threats.

As targeted attacks and their impact become more serious, it is vital to overlay security, infrastructure, business, and market data with threat intelligence to enable security operations teams to focus their remediation efforts on those threats that represent the highest risk for their business. RiskVision does just that, as it aggregates critical intelligence from CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence with other operational IT and security data to continuously assess a company’s risk and compliance posture.

“Indicators of risk are difficult to identify when attackers, their capabilities, and activities are unknown,” said Torsten George, vice president of marketing and products at Agiliance. “Our partnership with CrowdStrike provides our customers with the insight required to understand the impacts of individual threats on business operations, prioritize response actions, and manage remediation workflows.”

The integration of CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence with RiskVision allows for the correlation of detailed technical and strategic analysis of adversary capabilities, indicators, attribution, and intentions with automated risk management of big data feeds from vulnerabilities, events, controls, and policies. RiskVision already automates the correlation of more than 65+ dedicated data feeds and millions of big data objects, enhancing an organization’s capability to gain a holistic view into risk at near real time.

“Combining RiskVision’s big data risk capabilities with Falcon Intelligence provides an offering that allows organizations to tackle today’s fierce threat landscape,” said Scott Fuselier, vice president of worldwide sales and alliances at CrowdStrike. “Correlating actionable security intelligence and automated indicator feeds with key risk indicators helps organizations to prioritize their resources and focus on those critical threats that pose the highest risk.”

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
