Agiliance®, Inc., the leading independent provider of Integrated Risk Management solutions for Governance and Security programs, today announced that it has won the Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Award for a second year in a row. Agiliance RiskVision™ was named Best Compliance / Vulnerability Assessment solution for 2013 and was also a finalist for Best Continuous Monitoring and Best Big Data Analytic solution.
“Winning the GSN Homeland Security Award for the second consecutive year is a great honor,” said Torsten George, vice president of worldwide marketing and products at Agiliance. “The fact that our integrated risk management platform was recognized in three different awards categories is a testament to the value, innovation, and market benefits that the Agiliance RiskVision platform delivers to government and intelligence agencies.”
Agiliance is used by civilian, defense, and intelligence agencies to perform continuous diagnostics (monitoring) and report on their organization’s risk and security posture in near real time. The company’s Agiliance RiskVision software gathers data feeds from otherwise silo-based security and IT tools such as SIEMs, configuration management databases, vulnerability scanners, threat data feeds and advisory services, database security management, etc. It then aggregates, normalizes, and correlates the information with business criticality to score risks and prioritize remediation actions. In addition, Agiliance RiskVision automates governance processes to provide insight into an agency’s compliance posture.
“In the past, much of cyber security has been reactive and the trends are to be proactive. The trend is toward a more holistic approach of integrating technologies, processes, and people,” said Charles Brooks, vice president / client executive of Xerox and lead judge for this year’s GSN Homeland Security Awards. “The future of the practice will rely more on informed risk management. That requires an active strategy of detection, recognition, identification, response, and remediation of threats.”
Winners were announced at a gala dinner hosted by GSN aboard the Aqua Azul motor yacht in New York Harbor on December 5, 2013.
