Snow Software enhances Risk Monitor to strengthen cybersecurity and compliance programs

Snow Software has enhanced its Risk Monitor product to help organisations strengthen cybersecurity and compliance programs with insight across their technology landscape.Risk Monitor automatically provides a comprehensive and contextual view of where high-stakes vulnerabilities and personally identifiable information (PII) reside, providing the visibility needed to proactively mitigate potential threats.

To counter ongoing threats and help strengthen security protections, it identifies and prioritises critical vulnerabilities based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s National Vulnerability Database.

It also helps organisations protect user data and comply with GDPR by identifying applications with PII based on Snow’s purpose-built database. Using the same discovery agent for both asset management and vulnerability identification,  it provides organisations with a single source of truth that is augmented with trusted third-party as well as proprietary first-party data.

According to  Peter Björkman, Chief Technology Officer of Snow,  IT asset managers and cybersecurity teams need to work together to achieve complete visibility and secure their IT environments.

“With Risk Monitor, enterprises can quickly identify, prioritise and remediate software vulnerabilities based on up-to-date data and intelligence on your current technology estate,” he added.
