Rsam SRI Delivers Actionable Intelligence for Security Operations Big Data

Rsam's Security Risk Intelligence (SRI) Solution Transforms Large Volumes of Security Operations Big Data Into Actionable Information for Risk-Based Decision-Making

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwired - February 20, 2014) - Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) platforms, is pleased to announce the successful launch and market adoption of the company's solution for security operations big data -- Rsam Security Risk Intelligence (SRI).

Initially released in June 2013, SRI built upon Rsam's proven Threat and Vulnerability offering with the ability to analyze, normalize, correlate, add business relevance as well as create dashboards, reports and heat maps that let you communicate the key performance metrics of your ongoing security program Big Data to the CSO.

In a recent case study, James Purvis, lead information security analyst at the University of Rochester Medical Center, noted, "With the custom dashboards and reporting aspects built into Rsam, we have been able to quickly gather a complete and accurate picture of our incidents, current compliance status and are able to identify and prioritize our vulnerability and risk management programs with meaningful impact. Rsam SRI helps us to identify and prioritize our risk exposure so that we can keep our patient data and confidential information secure."

Rsam SRI has been successfully deployed by Rsam customers across vertical industries including healthcare, financial services, energy and retail, enabling them to automate processes, maintain compliance, gain insight into problematic areas and proactively take action before incidents occur.

"Threats and vulnerabilities have become more sophisticated and recent events have shown that security breaches can affect even the most prominent enterprises," said Vivek Shivananda, CEO of Rsam. "But throwing more people at the problem is not the answer. Organizations that hope to avoid these types of incidents must take advantage of automation and leverage tools that provide insight into their security programs and intelligence for risk-based decision making."

Highlights of Rsam Security Risk Intelligence (SRI) include:

  • Condense large volumes of data allowing you to store metrics over many years without running out of space
  • Metasploit data integration enables users to identify, then patch, those vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited. This rapid identification of 'low-hanging fruit' significantly reducing the likelihood of a breach
  • Automated notification and prioritization allows teams to be laser-focused on the most relevant remediation efforts
  • Proactive threat management that pulls data from the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system and other threat intelligence feeds and routes them to the appropriate subject matter experts

Off-line decision support enhances collaboration and puts information in the hands of senior executives allowing them to make rapid decisions through their email without ever having to learn or navigate Rsam.

"Our customers are managing huge volumes of data received from a wide variety of sources," said Kevin Day, CTO of Rsam. "Rsam's superior method of marrying diverse data sets with intelligent indexing, tagging, routing and analytics is optimized to help organizations process and manage big security data. Customers can now focus on security rather than administration."
