Risk Management

Reduce IT Risk Exposure with Elemental

As IT security organizations struggle to gain a meaningful understanding of the level and sources of risk within their information systems environment they face a significant challenge in trying to interpret and correlate information generated by all the disparate controls deployed throughout the environment. A quantitative risk management approach can provide an important set of business-aligned security metrics to help administrators manage security and compliance initiatives in a way that effectively leverages available resources and protects the key interests of the organization.

Automated Risk Management

Elemental provides an automated and programmatic assessment of the value of machines and degree to which they are at risk. In this way, risk becomes an integral part of the Elemental Security Platform (ESP), providing unified oversight and control for security and compliance management. The ESP infuses risk into every step of the policy lifecycle management process, from the initial discovery and assessment of risk to the inclusion of risk intelligence in monitoring and mitigation.

Business Aligned Security Metrics

The continuous and extensive visibility provided by the ESP into the state, security posture, and activity of systems on the network is leveraged to assess the value of systems in a way that clearly reflects the context and interests of the business. The comprehensive security controls supported by the ESP provide the ability to gauge the risk exposure of systems, and ultimately their associated loss potential to the business. The risk and value of systems comprise a critical set of business-aligned metrics that empower IT and security operations to focus their resources on the security issues that present the greatest threat to the business, and inform business and organizational leaders through security metrics that are mapped directly to the goals and requirements of the business.
