Next Generation of Telos’ Cyber Risk Management Platform Alleviates Audit Fatigue via Automated Control Mapping

Xacta.io 1.6.1 expands support for multi-regulatory compliance

June 30, 2021

Ashburn, Va. – June 30, 2021– Telos® Corporation, a leading provider of cyber, cloud and enterprise security solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, today announced the launch of Xacta.io™ 1.6.1, the latest version of its cyber risk management and compliance analytics platform. This new version now offers a controls crosswalk feature that enables Xacta.io to perform automated control mapping in further support of IT regulatory compliance management in on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments.

The new crosswalk feature, which orchestrates control mapping at scale, augments Predictive Mapping™, another important feature unique to Xacta.io, which uses standard vulnerability enumerators such as Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVEs) and Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) to automate the mapping of system vulnerabilities to their related controls. Both Predictive Mapping and control mapping use automation to unify compliance frameworks, significantly reducing the time and effort to validate similar controls from various regulations and frameworks.

The Xacta.io Controls Crosswalk page allows administrators to view and manage the default mappings between multiple regulations. These mappings are used to instantly assign validation results from scanners to mapped controls for faster compliance.

 

“Organizations across every industry are being forced to do more with less,” said Richard Tracy, CSO and Xacta product manager, Telos. “The crosswalk capability is a form of smart system technology that automates control validation by mapping similar controls from different regulations and frameworks. This makes organizations more efficient and alleviates the burden of audit fatigue.”

A recent survey conducted by an independent research firm found that on average organizations must comply with 13 different IT security compliance or privacy regulations. Xacta.io’s ability to automate control mapping among multiple regulations relieves the effort of validating these controls individually and then mapping the controls manually.

The 1.6.1 release of Xacta.io will include controls crosswalk support for several leading regulations and frameworks, including NIST SP 800-53 Rev 4, CNSS 1253 Rev 4, NIST SP 800-171, NIST CSF, FedRAMP, MARS-E v2.0, several DoD CC SRG Impact Levels, IRS 1075, Regulation Canadian B, and ISO 27002. Additional mappings will be added to the crosswalk library with subsequent Xacta.io releases to address customer requirements.
