Allgress today announced that it has been named the winner of the Risk Management Innovation Award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

“Managing risk and regulatory compliance can be extremely complex, and many organizations face this complexity then end up overspending because they don’t know which tools focus on satisfying what requirements.,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Allgress’ ComplianceVision solution delivers rapid automated compliance mapping, assessment, reporting and remediation that helps organizations reduce risk with less complexity and consulting time, and we are excited to recognize them with our Risk Management Innovation Award in the 2018 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program.”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,000 nominations from over 14 different countries throughout the world.

“Allgress is honored to be recognized by CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards for Innovation in Risk Management,” said Jeff Kushner, Allgress Chief Marketing Officer. “Our solutions help organizations automate the entire process from selecting solutions that will manage required controls to achieving comprehensive integrated compliance and risk management.”

Allgress was the first solution provider to introduce a streamlined continuous monitoring solution using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) API to reduce the complexity, increase the speed, shorten the timeframe of achieving compliance and adhering to regulations and best practices with minimal human involvement in the AWS environment with the RPM (Regulatory Product Mapping) solution.

RPM for AWS helps enterprise security and risk professionals assess, understand, and manage corporate risk, then analyze them against the requirements of common security and compliance frameworks to determine how to meet them with AWS Services and 3rd party solutions in the AWS Marketplace. Allgress RPM allows customers to map their regulatory frameworks including but not limited to ISO, NIST, HIPPA, CJIS, FISMA and PCI-DSS.

Allgress recently introduced ComplianceVision that builds on RPM leveraging our Allgress mature technology, which extends mapping controls to frameworks to comprehensive automated assessment for compliance and risk oversight. The solution can be further expanded with the Allgress Insight Risk Management (IRMS) suite to address more encompassing functions like comprehensive policy, incident, exception, third-party vendor management risk analysis and advanced reporting.
