New Offering Uses Adaptive Mapping™ and Cascading Analytics to Give Organizations a Complete View of Their InfoSec Compliance Posture
ASHBURN, Va. – February 18, 2014 – Telos Corporation today released for general availability Xacta Continuum, the latest component of the Xacta® IA Manager framework for enterprise security risk assessment. Xacta Continuum correlates results from multiple security products across an organization into a single view, and maps them to the relevant controls for security and risk management.
“Xacta Continuum introduces revolutionary technology for automating continuous monitoring,” said Telos Vice President of Technical Solutions Hugh Barrett. “Our Adaptive Mapping™ engine saves hours of manual effort by automatically mapping thousands of system vulnerabilities to corresponding controls and standards. And our Cascading Analytics capability dramatically increases analyst productivity.”
Xacta Continuum’s patent-pending Adaptive Mapping gives security testers and assessors the power to look across multiple security feeds and understand how they influence a variety of controls and requirements for a particular product or system. It dynamically maps the content from various vulnerability schemas to the relevant controls and automatically detects and plots the points of intersection among vulnerabilities, controls, and assets. The model grows as new sources of information such as third-party scans are added.
Xacta Continuum can capture the analysis performed on an asset and adaptively cascade the analysis to all other related assets and tests. This process of analyzing and cascading can be repeated across the environment until all assets are analyzed.
Xacta Continuum is a key component of the Xacta IA Manager framework for enterprise security risk assessment. Xacta IA Manager automatically detects changes to the IT environment providing constant situation awareness of potential risks and threats. It enables organizations to track the security state of a wide range of information systems on an ongoing basis and maintain the security authorization for the systems over time. Its elements work together to provide CISOs and other senior leaders with a dynamic view into the current status of security controls.
