Your business today is exposed to a vast, globally accessible internet — with an extended perimeter of third party vendors, services, partners, customers, employees and IoT devices. Combined, they blur the traditional business perimeter, making securing an organization’s data an increasingly complex task. Pressure and government enforcement actions have intensified on organizations, and they need to demonstrate sufficient evidence of programs, policies and processes that reduce cyber risk or mitigate the impact of a data breach.
Cyber risk is another business risk to be managed and mitigated where possible. Fortress was founded by veteran business executives seeking to take a more action-oriented, scalable and risk-based approach to data security. The company specializes in continuous cyber risk and resilience maturity for the modern enterprise. We deliver automated and security-as-a-service solutions through our always-on, proprietary "RIMM" platform — powered by deep data analytics, internal and external threat intelligence, and continuous cyber risk monitoring by our dedicated, in-house teams of security researchers, engineers, consultants, analysts and legal experts.
Times have changed. Purchasing the latest solution is no guarantee of cyber security success. Over the next few years, business executives and line of business managers need to develop greater cybersecurity acumen. IT & Security executives must do more than respond to threats and detect / respond to incidents; they must also create metrics and communicate risks related to security in an operationally efficient and measurable manner. Executive-Level and SecOps Dashboards and Risk Scores deliver a simple, yet holistic view of cyber risk across the enterprise. Think of it as a single, unified portal to manage 1st and 3rd party vulnerabilities and remediation tasks based on likelihood, impact and/or liability.
Beyond traditional security platforms, we focus on the extended perimeter of your business and provide:
Task Board module to prioritize risk mitigation tasks
“Always-on” Risk Assessment Manager
Continuous cyber risk monitoring
Quantitative analysis of attack surface using advanced analytics and machine learning techniques
Vulnerability likelihood and exploit monitoring
Help to modify and enforce your legal and contractual framework
Our approach promises greater control over your security risk, an express alignment with your business risk appetite, and a unified security roadmap designed to drive continuous action.
When asked to identify the top business initiative driving IT spending, 43% of respondents of a survey conducted by ESG said, “increasing cyber security.” Many business and security executives now realize that they need good security — not just “good enough” security. Protecting the true boundaries of a modern enterprise requires a more comprehensive and continuous approach than current platforms offer. Your company needs more than basic contractual protections, traditional point-in-time audits and vendor self-assessment. You need risk-based intelligence against persistent threats.
Fortress provides the always-on "RIMM" platform, which continuously maps and monitors the full surface of your organization’s changing risk landscape. We partner with enterprises to develop a complete risk profile combining external 1st/3rd party threat intelligence to provide data-driven recommendations that shorten time-to-remediation.
We do this with intelligent use of advanced scanning and threat overlay technologies, paired with our security team's multidisciplinary expertise in the fields of penetration testing, threat intelligence and security research.
We apply our analytics-based data visualization tools, produce action-oriented status reports, conduct legal reviews of third party security provisions and execute a variety of proven risk-prioritization methods.
We leverage our comprehensive platform to keep vigilance over your third parties, data assets, mobile/cloud integration, BYOD policies, contractual relationships and all other prioritized risk areas.
When you partner with Fortress, you are engaging a multifaceted team, each an expert in their field, ready to defend your perimeter. We work alongside you in partnership, addressing your most complex cyber-vulnerability questions and boosting your overall security resilience.
