Secure, Future-Proof your Organization’s Digital Transformation with Brinqa and Cherwell

by admin



As enterprises embrace the opportunities enabled by digital transformation, they also expose themselves to newer and deadlier threats.

Cloud infrastructure, SaaS, explosive growth of mobile computing power, IoT and other emerging technologies are drastically changing the technology footprint and security culture for most businesses. Information security organizations, long struggling to keep up with the pace of change are now firmly falling behind.

To address these challenges effectively, InfoSec organizations have to re-evaluate how they approach cyber security. It is critical to develop a clear understanding of the risks associated with the ever-changing technology infrastructure, and their potential to impact business adversely. By quantifying the technology risk associated with business entities, security professionals can take the most effective decisions to harden a vital business unit or secure a mission-critical business process. Effective cyber risk management can help organizations achieve these goals.

Brinqa Brings the Best in Cyber Risk Management Platforms

The platform provides management and automation support throughout the risk analysis, identification, mitigation, validation and communication processes. With its emphasis on structure, transparency, extensiveness and adaptability, it is the perfect platform for tackling new and emerging cyber risk management problems.

Brinqa applications deliver a streamlined, user-friendly experience for common cyber risk management functions:

  • Consolidate: Integrate, correlate and represent data from all relevant security tools and programs.
  • Contextualize: Augment technical data with business and technology context from CMDB, HR, BC/DR, Network Management, etc.
  • Analyze: Integrate threat intel, implement risk scoring and prioritization models to identify the most critical vulnerabilities and assets.
  • Execute: Implement remediation playbooks to automatically create and assign tickets for manual remediation. Trigger orchestration systems for automation risk mitigation.

Two critical components of any cyber risk management program are IT Asset Management (ITAM) – which serves as the source of invaluable asset information, and business and technology context – and IT Service Management (ITSM) – which serves as the engine for remediation and task management. Brinqa partner Cherwell is a leader in these fields.
