SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agiliance®, Inc., the Big Data Risk Company™ and leading independent provider of integrated solutions for Operational and Security Risk Intelligence, today announced that it is a finalist in two categories of the Network Products Guide 2015 Annual IT World Awards. RiskVision® was shortlisted for Best Security Software Product of the Year as well as Best Information Security and Risk Management Product of the Year. The Network Products Guide Awards honor achievements in every facet of the IT industry. Winners will be announced during a gala dinner in San Francisco, California on June 29, 2015.
“We are honored to be a finalist in two of the most highly contested categories of the coveted Network Products Guide industry and peer awards,” said Torsten George, vice president of worldwide marketing and products at Agiliance. “This further validates Agiliance’s leadership position in operationalizing cyber security risk and empowering organizations to strengthen their threat defenses and streamline their incident risk response.”
In a dynamically changing risk ecosystem, characterized by cyber-attacks, new threats associated with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and shadow IT, as well as data breaches that exploit the IT supply chain, identifying risk is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. In addition, increasingly stringent government regulations such as NIST Cybersecurity Framework are scrutinizing antiquated, assessment-based risk and governance practices based on managerial opinion. This landscape is forcing businesses to strategically align objectives with data-driven analysis of risks from business units, suppliers, as well as cloud and datacenter operations to optimize risk intelligence, prioritization, remediation, and audit reporting.
In this context, RiskVision is disrupting the established practice of performing risk management as continuous consulting, replacing it with continuous, automated software-based monitoring. The RiskVision software platform enables organizations to manage enterprise risk by making it visible, measurable, and actionable across business, IT, and security operations in near real time. Agiliance unifies security and compliance in one integrated enterprise platform that enables companies to move from a reactive, compliance-driven approach to a pro-active, risk-aware model.
Winners of the 10th Annual 2015 IT World Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on June 29, 2015. To attend the awards, please register at http://www.networkproductsguide.com/awards/tickets/info/.
