New Addition to Xacta IA Manager Suite Supports Continuous Compliance and Vendor Risk Assessment
ASHBURN, Va. – February 18, 2015 –Telos® Corporation today announced the general availability of Xacta® Compliance Campaign Manager™, a browser-based software package for security compliance management, vendor risk assessments, survey management and internal cybersecurity audits.
“Automation of compliance activities is critical to a continuous compliance program, but the simple fact is that some actions will always require human intervention,” said Vinod Ravi, product QA manager for Telos Corporation. “Xacta CCM™ streamlines the process of managing and tracking those human actions.”
Compliance managers use Xacta CCM to create and distribute surveys and questionnaires for manual security checks and to enforce controls for leading government and commercial standards. These campaigns use OCIL, the Open Checklist Interactive Language developed by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) for IT security. A configurable dashboard provides insights into compliance status, with reports including an enterprise overview report, status of all campaigns, list of top high-risk campaigns and top overdue campaigns.
Xacta CCM also helps organizations to more effectively manage the security risks that result from vendor and other third-party relationships. It enables them to use pre-defined and custom-built questionnaires to simplify vendor compliance assessments and result evaluation to support sound partner selection decisions.
Xacta CCM is a key component of Xacta IA Manager, a suite of security risk management products that enables organizations to automate and streamline all aspects of cybersecurity frameworks such as the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and the Cybersecurity Framework for critical infrastructure (Executive Order 13636). The core components of the Xacta IA Manager suite are Xacta Assessment Engine, Xacta CCM, and Xacta Continuum™.
