SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  RSA Conference -- Agiliance Inc., the leading independent provider of integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced availability of RiskVision 5.0. This industry-first GRC solution gives organizations a continuous link between enterprise compliance and risk objectives and security threats in cloud, mobile and on-premise environments. RiskVision 5.0 also drives advancements in user interface, audit management, vendor risk management, policy import, data connectors and regulatory content.

New features in Agiliance RiskVision 5.0 that enable a risk-based approach to security include:

  • Vulnerable Asset Identification -- to identify vulnerable assets based on live connection to threat intelligence sources.
  • Active Correlation of Security Data Sources -- to correlate and normalize data from common security solutions, such as scanners, configuration checkers, and patch managers, etc.
  • Risk Assessment and Scoring Automation -- to assess and prioritize threats and incidents using standard and proprietary risk scoring engines.
  • Risk Driven Threat Response -- to intelligently prioritize and mitigate threats and incidents based on risk level and business impact.
  • Risk Centric Reports and Dashboards -- to provide continuous, risk centric visibility and analysis of security posture.
  • Incident Management -- to provide continuous incident reporting and response management, including integration with leading Security Information Management (SIM) products.
  • Remediation Automation -- to enable bi-directional integration with patch management and help desk systems for end-to-end automation of remediation.

"Security professionals no longer 'just secure' the enterprise; they are also tasked with ensuring that the organization's security posture supports an acceptable level of risk," noted Regie Lewis, Director of Network Engineering at DRS Technologies, a $4B defense contractor. "Agiliance RiskVision 5.0 injects risk methodology into every aspect of security management. Implementing a risk-based approach to security can help organizations fundamentally tie security strategy to mission objectives and achieve operational excellence. DRS Technologies has successfully leveraged Agiliance RiskVision to manage security and operational risks for a number of our client programs."

RiskVision 5.0 also delivers advanced enterprise risk and compliance features, including:

  • Solution-Optimized User Interface -- to streamline task flows, navigation, and smart wizards so business users can control and configure application logic on the fly.
  • Audit Findings & Gaps Management -- to manage lifecycle of audit findings and gaps collected from any source.
  • Audit Document Management -- to enhance management of audit documents, test procedures, and evidences for business process control testing.
  • Vendor Document Management -- to manage contract, agreement, and policy documents with third-parties.
  • Reporting Wizard Enhancements -- to enable business users to create and modify reports without programming or scripting.
  • Policy Import From Word -- to import policy documents in native Word format, preserving all content, format, structure, tables and images.
  • Data Connector Extensions -- for out-of-the-box integration with Application Security DbProtect* and AppDetectivePro*, VeriSign iDefense*, ArcSight ESM*, eEye Retina*, and the NIST National Vulnerability Database.
  • Third-Party Content Integration -- to support importing and mapping of third party content such as ISF and UCF to the Agiliance Common Control Framework.

"Security threats and incidents are increasing exponentially in volume and complexity, compounded by growth in the threat environment, movement towards cloud, and increased mobile computing," said Christian Christiansen, Program Vice President for IDC's Security Products and Services group. "To keep pace, security organizations need to make informed decisions that are consistent with the enterprise's risk and compliance priorities. Compliance solutions, such as Agiliance RiskVision, can help reconcile risk against business development."

Agiliance RiskVision 5.0 is now generally available. Single application pricing starts at US $50,000. Organization-specific pricing is based on deployment scale and IT system data connectivity.
