OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - Jan 10, 2013) - LockPath, a provider of innovative governance, risk and compliance (GRC) applications, today announced the full integration of its Keylight platform with McAfee Vulnerability Manager under the auspices of the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance™ (SIA). This simple integration will provide mutual customers with greater risk intelligence to tackle their risk and compliance challenges and continues LockPath's mission to deliver unparalleled data integration and correlation.
"There is a wide variation in the scope and functional capabilities in the current set of solutions," notes Gartner Research Senior Analyst Paul Proctor in the Hype Cycle for Governance, Risk and Compliance Technologies, 2012. "Although there are many, the dominant use case is automating the collection and analysis of general computer controls. The use of connectors to import data from third party security products and an IT-centric asset repository are defining features of IT GRC that separate it from EGRC products."
The out-of-the-box integration quickly delivers integrated, actionable dashboards and reports to provide a holistic view of an organization's security and risk posture. After the administrator enters the database location, username and password, Keylight automatically imports all current and new McAfee vulnerability findings without any needed user action. Users can easily create adhoc reports to find the highest priority vulnerabilities and leverage Keylight's advanced workflow capabilities to assign and manage remediation. Additionally, Keylight automatically correlates vulnerabilities to the organization's underlying assets and deduplicates findings to reduce complexity. Together, Keylight and McAfee Vulnerability Manager empower information security professionals to better interpret and share findings, manage remediation and make better business decisions.
"The integration of the Keylight platform, and specifically Threat Manager, with McAfee Vulnerability Manager mitigates the need for homegrown solutions and fragile custom integrations," said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. "This integration provides customers with an entirely new level of risk intelligence that empowers them to contextualize vulnerabilities from a business perspective."
McAfee Vulnerability Manager provides fast, precise and comprehensive insights into vulnerabilities on a business' networked assets. Easy-to-implement, McAfee Vulnerability Manager readily scales to suit networks from hundreds to millions of nodes. Keylight provides configurable workflow, notification and reporting features and automatically distills large, complex data sets into simplified dashboards, prioritizing the most important enterprise risks. Joint customers will also benefit from:
- National Vulnerability Database integration for big-picture threat perspective and trending
- Point-and-click configurable workflow to dynamically assign vulnerability remediation and ease reporting
- Pre-categorization and de-duplication of vulnerability to reduce confusion and limit security "noise"
- Drag-and-drop configurable dashboards to allow each user a custom view of data (e.g., by device type, by region, by facility, by severity)
- Vulnerability and asset record correlation to create scorecards and deliver additional remediation analysis
"Other vendors may claim to offer comprehensive security and risk data integration, but few GRC providers come close to offering the selection of data integrations and ease-of-use that LockPath's extensive connector library delivers," said Chris Caldwell, co-founder and CEO, LockPath. "Keylight was purpose-built to integrate with best-of-breed security solutions such as the ones McAfee delivers to the market, and the new integration with McAfee Vulnerability Manager will help joint customers get the most from their strategic security investments and make better business decisions."
