Gartner Continuous Controls Monitoring

Telos is proud to have been named in the Gartner report, “Innovation Insight: Cybersecurity Continuous Control Monitoring (CCM)” (May 2023).

Gartner’s Innovation Insight Reports focus on emerging technologies, approaches, or methodologies that have the potential to significantly impact businesses or industries. According to the CCM Innovation Insight Report, “Continuous control monitoring (CCM) automates the monitoring of cybersecurity controls’ effectiveness and relevant information gathering in near real time. Security and risk management leaders can improve their organization’s security posture and their own productivity by adopting this technology.”

Twenty years ago, Xacta helped to create the category of IT Risk Management software, which then morphed into Cyber Risk Management, and ultimately become a key input into Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) software.

The Xacta platform has been continually enhanced over the years to support the world’s leading control frameworks and complex computing systems on-premises, in the cloud, and hybrid. Xacta conducts automated testing and assessments, integrates with third party vulnerability scanners, monitoring tools and proprietary data feeds, and produces comprehensive management reports and compliance documentation.

Xacta is a one-stop shop for cyber risk management and compliance. Through its CCM features, Xacta enables your IT security operations staff and risk managers to work together to move the organization from traditional, manual, point-in-time risk analysis and reporting to state-of-the-art, real-time, continuous assessments.

The result is “better for less.” Better security, risk management, productivity, and effectiveness from your current staff. According to the Gartner report, “A CCM tool can help you avoid the cost of hiring employees or contractors to perform an increasing number of control management tasks. Ultimately, however the main benefit of a CCM tool is that it enables you to reallocate personnel to more value-added activities, such as closing control gaps, rather than finding them.”
