Protecting Mission Critical Assets and Achieving Cyber Resiliency is your Top Priority


To resist against present and future cyber threats, forward-looking leaders have to invest in 3 core areas: Verification, Visibility, and Velocity


Compliance Verification

Organizations have to separate control from monitoring by evaluating the impact of proposed changes to policies and configurations using an independent policy review process. Compliance teams should be equipped with best-in-class solutions to automate the audit and analysis process. A risk assessment framework should be adopted to align cybersecurity controls for everyone.


Cybersecurity Visibility

80% of organizations lack the network visibility they need to understand the assets they have to defend. The solution is to invest in an architecture review by building an accurate network topology and documenting network configuration. In addition, organization should automate network risk assessment to accelerate adoption of controls and best practices.


Operational Velocity

Point-in-time assessments are no longer sufficient to address today’s cyber attacks. Organizations should invest in continuous configuration monitoring in order to reduce their risk profile faster. In addition, they should provide their incident response team access with detailed visibility over the network topology, critical asset exposure, and network connectivity history.
