Map your Security Stack’s features against your security framework to see gaps and overlaps in real-time – with RedMonocle’s Always-On Audit
You can’t fix what you can’t see.
A “blind spot” is, by definition, outside your field of vision. Because you’re too close, too distant, or you’re not in the right position to see it. Cyber security risk blind spots are the “unknown unknowns” that keep cybersecurity pros up at night.
These risk blind spots exist in the gap between your Stack (the “internal” toolset you rely on) and your Standards (your preferred “outside” security framework).
What’s hiding in those blind spots?
Gaps in coverage, and overlaps that could be eliminated to reduce costs. Gaps represent controls you haven’t covered with your current portfolio. They must be resolved to increase compliance and Secure your Stack. Overlaps are where you have redundant coverage and could potentially Cost-optimize your Stack.
RedMonocle’s Always-On Risk Intelligence can tell you what to fix, which security tools will fix them and the impact on cost and coverage.
How do Risk Blind Spots happen?
To reveal risk blind spots, CISOs and other cybersecurity leaders have to compare Stack features to Standard requirements. Which sounds simple – until you try to do it.
To perform a single-point-in-time Stack vs. Standard review, you must know all the tools in your Security Stack. Plus all the details of how they’ve been deployed. Plus all the features and functionality of each product. And all that information has to be updated each time a new version is released, for every product. Keeping track of all this data as products are continually upgraded can be a brutal, time-consuming chore for you and your team.
RedMonocle mapped the software features of more than 300 Security tools to over 1,000 NIST SP 800-53 controls – the industry standard.
Once you’ve compared your Security Stack to these controls, you’ll have unprecedented visibility into the gaps and overlaps in your Security Stack. This will reveal your cyber security risk blind spots – enabling you to anticipate risk like never before.
Voila! You can now see vulnerabilities before a breach happens, and spot overlaps where optimization could reduce costs.
You also have to be an expert on Standards.
Even if you’re only using one security framework Standard, there are multiple iterations of each one. Do you need CMMC Level 2 or 3? Do you need to be compliant to NIST SP 800-53 Priority 1 or Priority 3? Standards provide an external perspective, but their details can be overwhelming.
Comparing Stack to Standard sounds simple in theory,
but in actual practice it’s a time consuming, expensive project. And one that’s outdated the instant any product in Stack gets upgraded. That’s why most organizations don’t do it.
But with RedMonocle’s Always-On Risk Intelligence, it’s not just possible, it’s easy.
Better yet, it’s continuously done for you. Our platform measures real-time compliance to NIST SP 800-53. CISOs can review Stack and Standard at any time, so you’re always compliant – and always prepared for an audit.
Effortlessly find gaps and overlaps in your Security Stack.
RedMonocle instantly highlights gaps and overlaps. This makes vulnerabilities visible before a breach happens, and identifies areas where optimization could reduce costs.
