Today at the Qualys Security Conference (QSC), Qualys unveiled an exciting new milestone for the company – the release of the Qualys Enterprise TruRisk Platform, marking a seismic shift for the future of Qualys as a leader in managing and reducing cyber risk for CISOs as well as security practitioners.
The Qualys Enterprise TruRisk Platform aggregates cyber risk signals from a wide array of disparate sources and correlates them into measurable risk insights using the unified TruRisk risk scoring framework. As a result, users are empowered with a centralized means of measuring, communicating, and eliminating their cyber risk with precise remediation and mitigation actions, supplying them with an optimized path to cyber risk reduction.
The Enterprise TruRisk Platform not only provides a centralized way for organizations to measure and eliminate their cyber risk but also arms users with the actionable insights they need to communicate their actual cyber risk posture to internal security and business risk stakeholders. Additionally, it provides external executive stakeholders, from the board to cyber risk insurers, with the necessary data they need to make the right decisions.
With ever-expanding attack surfaces and a growing threat landscape, cyber risk has become an elevated topic of importance and prominence for virtually every organization, especially for the C-suite. Today, nearly 50% of CISOs report directly to the CEO, with more than 90% regularly briefing their Board of Directors about their organization’s exposure to cyber risk. As a result, CISOs are being nudged into roles that require them to move beyond merely enumerating cyber risk in the form of Key Risk Indicators (KRIs).
Today, CISOs and security leaders must also measure and communicate cyber risk in the form of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that provide the business impact of vulnerabilities, threats, and risk posture in real time. However, this is easier said than done. With more than 60 security tools on average, security leaders are forced to parse through a complex maze of risk data from a collection of disparate solutions managed by different teams and split between IT and Security to calculate, articulate, and remediate cyber risk across their extended infrastructure.
The introduction of the Enterprise TruRisk Platform marks Qualys’ commitment to helping CISOs, cybersecurity practitioners, and risk stakeholders quantify the impact their cyber risk has on their businesses, with actionable paths to eliminate that risk with concise remediation and mitigations. Through this advancement, customers will now be able to gain even more from the comprehensive Qualys Threat Library and over 25 threat intelligence feeds that they already receive, empowering them to reduce their cyber risk posture more effectively across their organizations with tangible business context.
The Qualys Enterprise TruRisk Platform is the only cybersecurity and risk management solution that enables organizations to:
- Measure Cyber Risk – Aggregates cyber risk across Qualys and third-party products and their Risk Factors.
- Communicate Cyber Risk – Translates disparate cyber risk data into common actionable insights and business impact metrics for key security and business risk stakeholders.
- Eliminate Cyber Risk – Eliminates cyber risk across the extended enterprise with precise remediation and mitigation actions.
