Agiliance RiskVision Continues to Embrace BigFix Technology

Release of IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager (Formerly BigFix) Connector Emphasizes Importance of IBM Configuration and Patch Management Footprint

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 30, 2011) - Agiliance® Inc., the leading independent provider of Security and Operational Risk Management solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today announced the release of the IBM® Tivoli® Endpoint Manager Connector (built on BigFix® technology) for its flagship product, Agiliance RiskVision™. Leveraging the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Connector allows organizations to import configuration and patch data into Agiliance RiskVision.

Combining the power of IBM's Configuration and Patch Management technology with Agiliance RiskVision's capabilities of risk prioritization, correlation of patches with vulnerabilities, grouping of technical system components with business services, robust workflows for incident case management, and comprehensive reporting, attracts many security-minded organizations such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Intelligence Agencies, Aerospace and Defense Contractors, and E*TRADE because this solution:

  • Provides them with the ability to achieve a demonstrable improvement in risk and compliance posture, while enforcing processes that improve efficiency and effectiveness
  • Allows them to obtain a near real-time business view of the security posture across their large, heterogeneous IT infrastructures
  • Aids in orchestrating remediation actions based on asset criticality and other security, risk, and compliance information
  • Streamlines mitigation efforts across security and IT operations
  • Assists key decision makers in determining what additional mitigation efforts should be undertaken to bring the current security posture to an acceptable level
  • Provides the ability for security personnel to determine which mitigation or remediation efforts would yield the greatest reduction in risk posture or the greatest increase in compliance posture

The IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Connector imports data from IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager to enable organizations to strengthen their security and compliance initiatives for their IT assets. Data imported includes server and client computers, patches, configuration checks, and results from the configuration checks. Once inside of Agiliance RiskVision, this data can be correlated with vulnerabilities, asset criticality, and other security, risk, and compliance information that resides in Agiliance RiskVision.

The IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Connector is only one example of many Agiliance Connectors that enable large organizations to feed data into Agiliance RiskVision, resulting in a single point of view for an organization's threat, vulnerability, and risk posture. To assure that an organization's investment in security tools is sustainable, the OpenGRC™ by Agiliance Community brings together a consortium of service, technology and content providers that provide end user organizations automated -- yet cost-effective -- solutions to address their ever-increasing risk, compliance and security challenges.

"Many large organizations have to deal with a diverse set of security tools and are often struggling to share information across these systems," said Arti Raman, vice president of products and alliances at Agiliance. "Agiliance RiskVision comes with an extensive library of 30 purpose-built connectors, enabling efficiency from out-of-the-box integration to enable real-time integration with all types of identity, policy, zero-day threat, vulnerability, event, technical control, incident, DLP, ticketing, patch management, reporting, analytics, and business intelligence products."

The IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Connector for Agiliance RiskVision is priced at US $15,000 and available immediately. Please visit our website for more details.
