Rsam Launches New Security Incident Response Offering As Part of Industry Leading SOAR Platform

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwired - February 24, 2016) - Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) and Security Operations, Analytics & Reporting (SOAR) solutions, today announced the availability of its Security Incident Response Platform (SIRP) to handle and communicate complex incidents across multiple departments within an organization. The SIRP offering is fully integrated with Rsam's industry-leading threat management and vulnerability management solutions, providing organizations the most comprehensive view into their security incidents. 

Serious security incidents, which can have a greater business impact than ever before, are driving shifts in security management and the need for specialized tools to support IR efforts. Organizations and their customers are demanding higher levels of responsiveness, while BYOD and cloud have given IT less control over their infrastructure and data than ever before. Enterprises are realizing that they need a coordination function to detect security incidents, assess the damage, and then lead the response.

Rsam Security Operations, Analytics & Reporting (SOAR) cuts through the increasing volume of security operations Big Data and provides analysis that helps you gain insight, identify problem areas, and take action before a security incident occurs. With the addition of new SIRP capabilities, organizations can now rapidly respond to these incidents across multiple responsible groups, reducing incident response time, enabling faster compliance with regulations, enabling visibility into how widely spread an incident is, and cataloguing all evidence for later use in support of legal proceedings and root-cause analysis.

"Security incidents are different from other incidents in an organization, and require a greater degree of coordination, as they depend on imperfect (or often deliberately misleading) evidence that must be verified, assessed and interpreted," said Vivek Shivananda, CEO of Rsam. "By delivering our SIRP as part of a tightly integrated security operations, analysts and reporting solution, in concert with threat and vulnerability management, we are enabling customers to have as much information as possible at their fingertips, communicate and coordinate through agreed-upon best practices, and maintain a single location for all evidence for any given incident."

Key functionality within Rsam's Security Incident Response Platform (SIRP) includes the ability to:

  • Leverage your existing playbooks to automatically generate and assign handling and response tasks.
  • Automatically escalate events based on user definable criteria.
  • Automatically assign notification tasks based on built in state and regulatory requirements.
  • Maintain evidence journals to support future investigations.
  • Access real time dashboards that can target incident responders and security operations centers as well as executives.
