RiskVision Teams With Offensive Security to Advance Enterprise Vulnerability Management

New Relationship Offers a Pre-Packaged, Correlated Threat Data Feed for Risk Intelligence Customers

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/26/16 -- RiskVision, the enterprise risk intelligence company formerly known as Agiliance, today announced it will be utilizing the Exploit Database, a non-profit project maintained by Offensive Security. As part of the RiskVision offering, exploit information is correlated with RiskVision-configurable business context and vulnerability attributes to prioritize exploitable threats in vulnerability risk scoring. This helps security and business risk owners reduce network operations activity while dramatically improving risk posture in their organizations.

The Exploit Database is a CVE compliant archive of public exploits and corresponding vulnerable software, developed for use by penetration testers and vulnerability researchers. The Exploit Database's aim is to serve the most comprehensive collection of exploits gathered through direct submissions and mailing lists, as well as other public sources, and then present them in a freely-available, easy-to-navigate database. The database is a repository for exploits and proof-of-concepts, rather than advisories, making it a valuable resource for those who need actionable data right away.

At Offensive Security, we place high value and importance in our time and resource investment in Exploit Database to provide the most comprehensive collection of publicly accessible exploits available in the industry. When companies like RiskVision integrate EDB information, they can be confident they have the most accurate dataset of modern exploits possible in their product. We are happy to work with RiskVision as they continue to innovate in this space. - Joe Steinbach, CEO, Offensive Security

RiskVision's closed-loop vulnerability management delivers innovation in every step of the cyber vulnerability work flow. In addition to integrating with threat exploit services such as Offensive Security, RiskVision utilizes products and services from vendors in the threat intelligence, vulnerability scanning, endpoint security, SIEM and DLP, IT service management and configuration management spaces.

"It's nearly impossible to prioritize the number of threats to an organization if you don't have the most up-to-date exploit and vulnerability information in business context to see true risks," said Keith Higgins, chief marketing officer at RiskVision. "By leveraging Offensive Security's Exploit Database, one of the most complete exploit databases available today, we're giving our customers a fighting chance to secure their assets and the ability to accurately and effectively identify and remediate risks that matter."

RiskVision's approach to vulnerability management improves operational efficiency by performing automated risk scoring based on threat and business context, as well as filtering for relevant incidents based on event monitoring data. Uniquely, with RiskVision, Security Operations analysts can prioritize remediation, Organizational Unit risk experts can participate in decision-making with compliance oversight and IT Operations can be assured their workloads do not require additional staff.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
