New Cyber Risk Management Capabilities Provide Real-Time Visibility and Benchmarking to Boost Security Program Strength

Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. – February 3, 2017 – RiskSense® Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced the latest release of its Software-as-a-Service platform. RiskSense 7.0 integrates the TIBCO® Jaspersoft® Business Intelligence Engine, providing enhanced flexibility in the design and customization of self-service reports, clear and concise visualizations, and quick analysis and report generation. These advanced security analytics capabilities enable automated coordination among business stakeholders, provide real-time visibility into an organization’s cyber risk exposure, and enable security program benchmarking over time.

RiskSense will demonstrate the new RiskSense Platform 7.0 and its built-in business intelligence and analytics engine at RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco, booth S2816 from February 13 – 16, 2017.

The rise in the sophistication level of threats and security breaches, as well as stringent regulations and compliance requirements are driving the need for near real-time security analytics and reporting. This is being complicated by ever-expanding attack surfaces, which have extended beyond the network and endpoints to encompass databases, cloud environments, applications, and the Internet of Things.

In this context, RiskSense provides security professionals with clear visibility into vulnerabilities, threats, and their organization’s cyber risk exposure. Since it discovers risks as they occur, RiskSense can reduce security investigations from days to minutes. By enabling organizations to understand their cyber risk exposure across the entire security stack and all attack surfaces, RiskSense also provides better protection for critical business assets while reducing the time and cost associated with threat management and compliance-focused reporting.
RiskSense Platform 7.0’s integration of the TIBCO Jaspersoft Business Intelligence Engine provides end users with the following capabilities:
