ClearPoint has announced the release of Metrics Accelerator (Mx), the first enterprise software platform that fully automates the design, orchestration and production of security metrics. Built from the ground up as a purpose-built security metrics solution, the Metrics Accelerator is based on ClearPoint Metrics´ unsurpassed knowledge of security metrics and feedback from worldwide organizations implementing security metrics programs.
While there is always motivation to curb security spending, the real challenge for CSOs, CISOs and CIOs is to effectively integrate security into their existing IT management, governance and business structures. These executives are compelled to better understand, justifiably contain and communicate the value of IT security investments. They are demanding cost-effective monitoring, management and communication solutions for IT security and risk management that emulate the integration, automation and best practices achieved by financial, ERP, CRM, HR and other enterprise software solutions.
With the Metrics Accelerator, organizations go beyond the capabilities provided by security event management, vulnerability management point products or business intelligence tools. The Metrics Accelerator eliminates time-consuming manual and ad hoc metrics practices, enabling organizations to take a forward-thinking approach to measuring, monitoring, communicating and managing security programs.
The Metrics Accelerator platform consists of three components — Mx Studio, Mx Server and Mx Publisher — and is available by subscriptions geared toward four primary security disciplines: Identity and Access Management, Vulnerability and Patch Management, Threat and Virus Management, and Compliance and Risk Management.
