IT Audit and Risk Controls

IT Audit and Risk Controls

Close security gaps

Ultimately there are two questions CISOs are asked by their executive team; “Are we secure?” and “What are the risks?”

To accurately answer these questions you need to continuously monitor and measure the effectiveness of existing security controls, identify new areas within your security environment that need to be addressed to meet policy, and have a true measurement of your security posture to report to your board.

The Cb Endpoint Security Platform is a lightweight, proven next-generation endpoint protection platform that helps you maintain continuous compliance with the security controls required by IT Security auditors.
