SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., the leading independent provider of Integrated Risk Management
solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) programs, today
announced a new dedicated Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP)
program. The Agiliance Managed Risk-as-a-Service (M-RaaS) offering

complexities and automates threat and vulnerability remediation actions,
dramatically reducing mitigation times and improving operational
"Agiliance is recognized around the world as a leading provider of IT
security risk management technology," said Ron Borsholm, senior security
solutions consultant and qualified security assessor at Bell Canada (News - Alert).
"The company's new Managed Risk-as-a-Service enables us to help existing
and new customers that lack the internal IT expertise and resources to
address cyber threat remediation, security incident response, and
regulatory oversight. Agiliance clearly understands the dynamics of this
marketplace and has created a very compelling platform for IT security
The rising tide of insider and advanced persistent threats, mounting
regulatory pressure, and the impact of big security data on IT
operational efficiency is forcing organizations to perform continuous
security monitoring and frequent data assessments. MSSPs are benefitting
from these new requirements, since many organizations are unable to
increase IT headcount, have become more comfortable with outsourcing IT,
and need to implement additional security technologies, controls, or
Cognosec, an accredited provider of compliance and audit services to
major international companies seeking multi-state or multi-country
regulatory licensing, is using Agiliance M-RaaS to deliver their new
Online Gaming Regulation Framework package. According to Oliver Eckel,
CEO at Cognosec, a division of the UC Group, "Regulations and policies
vary by state and by country, which forces companies that offer remote
gaming toverify and comply with multiple regulatory requirements. This
can be a large and complex undertaking. Agiliance allows our clients
complete all their self-assessment questionnaires in one step to
streamline governance processes and reduce compliance costs."
Agiliance M-RaaS uses patented technology to identify, monitor, and
mitigate risks by correlating security posture, assessing the business
criticality of threats, and remediating physical and virtual assets
within an organization's infrastructure. It preserves investments in
best-of-breed IT and security tools or already deployed MSSP services.
Using 50+ connectors, Agiliance gathers data from leading asset and
configuration management tools, threat feeds, vulnerability scanners,
SIEM and DLP systems, plus privileged identity, ticketing, and patch
management tools. It enables MSSPs to streamline customers' governance
processes for PCI (News - Alert), ISO, FFIEC, FISMA, etc., manage risk-based
incident responses, and shorten time-to-remediation by orchestrating threat
and vulnerability remediation actions.
Highlights of the Agiliance MSSP Program include:
Virtualized, tiered delivery of Agiliance M-RaaS for threat, incident,
and compliance needs.

"IT security risk management is now a requirement to protect and govern
against advanced threats that bypass silo-based protection
technologies," said Michael Saintcross, vice president of worldwide
sales for Agiliance. "However, deploying an infrastructure to perform
continuous monitoring is beyond the technical and HR capabilities of
many organizations. This is a growing void that MSSPs can fill. The
Agiliance M-RaaS offering is a proven, scalable solution that allows
service providers to efficiently deliver a must-have service, while
their customers enjoy lower risk postures and operating peace of mind."
The Agiliance MSSP Program will officially be introduced at RSA
Conference 2013, February 25 - 28, 2013 in San Francisco. Interested
