Xacta.io Leverages Security Data at Scale to Actively Manage Cyber-Risk

Telos Corporation delivers next-generation cyber-risk management platform for complex on-premises, hybrid, and cloud-based environments.

ASHBURN, Va., Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telos ® Corporation, a leading provider of cyber, cloud and enterprise security solutions for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, today announced the general availability of Xacta.io™, the next generation cyber risk management platform.

Designed to address the complexity of managing cyber risk and compliance in modern computing environments – from cloud, multi-cloud and on-premises assets – Xacta.io empowers users to maximize the value of security risk and compliance data to derive intelligence required to actively manage cyber risk. Information gathered by Xacta.io can assist in making decisions pertaining to authorization, remediation prioritization, process and status reporting, resource investments, risk avoidance, and more.

“Security risk and compliance remains a hurdle for cloud adoption,” said John B. Wood, chairman and CEO of Telos. “This task is even more difficult for multi-cloud and hybrid environments.  Automation is critical for gathering, organizing, and operationalizing the data needed to continuously manage cyber risk for regulated and non-regulated industries alike. Xacta.io is specifically designed to address these complex use-cases, which will ultimately help accelerate cloud adoption.”  

Built on a microservices-based, environment-agnostic technology stack, Xacta.io is able to ingest and process data on a massive scale.  Third-party security data sources compatible with Xacta.io include security and vulnerability scanners, endpoint agents, and application programming interfaces (APIs) from cloud service providers.

Complementing the ability to ingest enormous amounts of security data is an advanced visualization dashboard that provides compliance scorecards, regulatory reporting, ad-hoc reporting, analytics and decision support.  Xacta 360 users will also benefit from these enhanced visualization and dashboard capabilities.

"Though compliance management remains a core mission, Xacta.io isn’t just for automation of authorization activities,” said Richard Tracy, CSO of Telos. “Xacta.io will offer much more advanced capabilities, leveraging vast amounts of security and compliance data at scale to enable informed decision-making around cyber risk. Ultimately, Xacta.io will become the hub for all things Xacta, as a flexible platform supporting a broad range of modular services and applications that meet our customers’ cybersecurity requirements.”

Xacta.io will soon include integration with the AWS and Azure clouds, with additional services added over time. For more information, please visit: www.telos.com/xacta.
