-- Enables modern organizations to evaluate their digital footprints, and proactively understand the insights of the attacker so they can pre-empt attacks --
DENVER – August 7, 2018 – Optiv Security, the world’s leading security solutions integrator, today announced “EnemyPerspectives@Optiv,” an integrated suite of services that allows the modern organization to evaluate its digital footprint from the perspective of a potential threat actor, from that actor’s intent, and then take prioritized steps to remediate weaknesses. EnemyPerspectives@Optiv is the latest example of how Optiv helps clients build sustainable, risk-centric foundations for implementing proactive and measurable security programs.
“Today’s organizations continue to accelerate the adoption of digital business models and environments to remain competitive. While transforming business to the latest apps and services provides access to new customers through more targeted data, it also creates a wider attack surface for threat actors to exploit, and puts businesses at greater reputational and financial risk,” said Chad Holmes, Optiv’s chief services and operations officer. “The assumption that plug-and-play security technologies can thwart threat actors is only one piece of the puzzle. We need to turn things around – take a different perspective, the perspective of the attacker – in order to have a more complete view on the risks to our businesses. The attacker sees things differently. They have a different purpose. They may look at part of an enterprise’s IT stack and instead of seeing protection, they see potential.”
Holmes continued, “An organization needs the right technologies deployed in the right ways, but it also needs insight into where vulnerabilities exist, based on demonstrated threat actor intent and behavior. EnemyPerspectives@Optiv gives clients a superior program to address current threats with the ability to effectively assess and predict future threats. With this foundation in place, organizations can take the appropriate actions to become cyber resilient and proactively mitigate risk.”
EnemyPerspectives@Optiv is aligned across three categories:
