Hyper-scale data ingestion and visualization
lay the groundwork for continuous compliance
Washington, DC – June 20, 2018 – Today at the Worldwide Public Sector Summit hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Telos® Corporation, a leading provider of continuous IT security solutions and services for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, announced the next generation of cyber risk management – Xacta.io.
The Xacta.io platform will address user requirements for cyber risk and compliance analytics and visualization while enabling streaming and persistent data sources for plentiful and accessible information. Xacta.io will empower users to maximize the value of security risk and compliance data to derive actionable intelligence required to actively manage cyber risk.
Xacta.io’s microservices-based, environment-agnostic technology stack makes possible data ingestion and processing on a massive scale. Data sources can include third-party solutions such as security and vulnerability scanners, endpoint agents, cloud service provider APIs, threat intelligence feeds, playbooks and more for robust cyber risk situational awareness and management. The advanced visualization dashboard will provide compliance scorecards, regulatory reporting, ad-hoc reporting, analytics and decision support.
“Security and compliance practitioners view continuous compliance as the ultimate goal of cyber risk management,” said John B. Wood, chairman and CEO of Telos. “While accelerating the ability to reach a point-in-time Authorization to Operate (ATO) is critical, Xacta.io’s new technology stack and data connector framework make significant progress toward maintaining a rolling ATO with continuous compliance.”
Deployable in the AWS cloud and on premises, the Xacta.io platform will be released in the first quarter of 2019, with additional services added over time.
In 2000, Telos revolutionized certification and accreditation with the release of Xacta Web C&A to automate labor-intensive manual tasks. Ongoing research and development over the coming years resulted in the 2014 release of Xacta Continuum for continuous monitoring and Xacta Compliance Campaign Manager in 2015 to address manual procedural controls. In June 2017, Telos launched Xacta 360 to streamline security compliance and empower a 360-degree view of the threat landscape and deliver powerful new capabilities that help enterprises cut the time needed to develop the body of evidence necessary to assure compliance with rigorous security standards. Xacta.io represents the next generation of cyber risk management.
