Quantified Cybersecurity Risk

& Business Value

RedMonocle exposes unseen risks in your Security Stack that can affect business objectives, and builds a clear roadmap to close those gaps.

Cyber security leaders face an impossible dilemma. You can’t stop what you can’t see. RedMonocle provides peace of mind by helping you build a more robust security posture – and more productivity from your team to the C-Suite.


Fund Dashboard




Cyber security leaders are under tremendous pressure to anticipate and prevent breaches. To reduce that stress, you need certainty that you’re seeing the whole picture of risk. You need an expanded perspective to stop reacting and start anticipating.

Proactive strategy starts with finding, funding, and fixing your cyber security risk blind spots.


By mapping the features in your Security Stack to cybersecurity and privacy control standards (like NIST SP 800-53), we show you the gaps and overlaps in coverage. Gaps represent your blind spots – holes that could lead to a breach. Overlaps reveal opportunities to streamline and reduce costs.



The C-Suite needs help understanding how cyber security risk connects to their big picture. RedMonocle maps NIST controls to related business metrics. Make a strong case for the fixes you need by showing their impact on critical business objectives.



Get continuous updates on gaps and overlaps across your Stack, along with a workspace to log and prioritize next actions. So instead of one point-in-time snapshot, you have an up-to-date workflow for your team and a ready-to-present, C-Suite-friendly Road Map.

Instantly highlight gaps and overlaps. Make vulnerabilities visible before a breach happens, and identify areas where optimization could help cut costs.
