Two Cybersecurity Companies Offering Free Risk Assessments

1 month ago 5

Endpoint security company Tanium and risk management solutions provider Reciprocity have each announced free risk assessment offerings this week.

Tanium is offering what it describes as a comprehensive five-day risk assessment that leverages the company’s platform, a cloud-based delivery model, and Python-based script automation.

A risk score is calculated based on data collected about system vulnerabilities, administrative access, compliance, sensitive data identification, encryption and authentication, the risk of lateral movement, and insecure transport security protocols.

Companies that conduct the risk assessment are provided a comprehensive report that includes recommendations on remediation and implementation.

Tanium says CISOs and CIOs can use the assessment to better communicate with business leaders and the board when it comes to risk posture and the steps being taken to improve it.

Reciprocity announced a new community edition of its automated risk observation, assessment, and remediation (ROAR) platform.

Reciprocity Community Edition is a free version of the company’s ROAR platform that includes the ZenComply compliance and audit management solution and the ZenRisk risk management solution.

The platform is fully functional, but it does have limitations — it’s only designed to help organizations achieve SOC 2 compliance.

The company says that, unlike a typical free trial, the Reciprocity Community Edition platform can be used for an unlimited time.
