SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - Agiliance®, Inc., the leading independent provider of Security and Operational Risk Management (SRM) solutions for Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced the release of the BMC® BladeLogic Automation Suite Connector, HP® Fortify™ Software Security Center Connector, Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 R3 Connector, and Symantec® Data Loss Prevention Connector.

Combining a broad range of heterogeneous security tools with Agiliance RiskVision's broad capabilities -- including dynamic risk prioritization, correlation with criticality to the business, grouping of technical system components with business services, robust workflows for incident case management, and comprehensive reporting -- fulfills the need of many progressive, security-minded organizations. Agiliance RiskVision allows them to obtain a near real-time business view of the security posture across their large, heterogeneous IT infrastructures and aids in orchestrating remediation actions based on business criticality and other security, risk, and compliance information.

Recent Agiliance customer wins in energy (e.g., U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory), federal (e.g., U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation), and financial services (e.g., Bank of New York Mellon and CIT Group) sectors show vendor-supported real-time data connectivity has become a key differentiator as organizations move from a compliance-centered to risk-centered approach. The integration with such a large number of third-party security technologies found special mention in Gartner's report titled "MarketScope for IT Governance, Risk and Compliance Management"1.

"While most security tools are great for collecting and storing large amounts of unstructured data, that doesn't necessarily mean an organization is ready for risk-based queries that make risk visible, measurable, and most importantly, actionable," said Torsten George, vice president of marketing and products at Agiliance. "Agiliance is excited to offer the industry's broadest range of dedicated data connectors, enabling organizations to gain insights into their risk and compliance posture by aggregating and correlating data from typically silo-based security tools in Agiliance RiskVision."

Connectors for Agiliance RiskVision are priced at US $15,000 each. Please visit the Agiliance website for more details or join us at RSA Conference 2012 at booth #445 for a demonstration of Agiliance Security Risk Management solutions.
