CyberRes, a Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) line of business, today launched ‘Galaxy,’ an immersive cyberthreat experience that provides actionable and business-centric intelligence for security executives. CyberRes Galaxy enables cyber professionals to quickly gain visibility into the most pressing threats to their business and helps organisations secure their value chains so they can focus on driving business growth.
The impact of COVID on enabling technology, combined with the use of machine learning, IoT, AI, blockchain, and other methods of business innovation, has increased the attack surface that adversaries can exploit. Through diverse sources of security threat data, CISOs need a more holistic means of rapid analysis and action. With CyberRes Galaxy, organisations can accelerate executive understanding of cyber risk, drive faster business risk decisions, and reduce the cost to deploy proactive cyber resiliency measures for their enterprise.
CyberRes Galaxy is a platform designed from the ground up to help CISOs, senior executives, and risk professionals eliminate the hyperbole and focus on what matters to their business. It does this by tying individual users and their specific business risks to threats that they need to counter in order to ensure comprehensive cyber resiliency. CyberRes Galaxy’s Priority Intelligence Briefings (PIB) are accompanied by countermeasures that an organization can deploy to secure its digital value chain.
“CyberRes Galaxy introduces an entirely new way for security executives to make sense of the threats facing their business by providing timely, focused, and relevant information that is easily accessible with deep insights, including potential annual loss expectancy and what actions can be taken to mitigate risk,” said John Delk, GM and SVP of CyberRes, a Micro Focus line of business. “As the growth of cybercrime continues to increase, security executives must be able to quickly identify the threats that are relevant to their organisation and focus on what matters most: protecting the business, detecting a changing risk surface, and evolving their security posture to adapt to a changing threat landscape.”
Key customer-value features and outcomes of CyberRes Galaxy include:
- Drive efficiency and cost avoidance: Improving efficiency and reducing cost through filtering out the noise to your business so your cyber defense teams can focus on what matters. Using your registered profile, the platform will recommend threats that are important to your unique business risk.
- Be better prepared: Galaxy enables customers to be better prepared by linking threats to their region, as well as major global events. For example, within Galaxy, you can ask about upcoming events in your region.
- Understand business impact: Galaxy makes it possible to create a mapping of a user’s business digital risk profile to the threats that are related to their unique environment. It does this by tying threat campaigns to the impacted geography, sector, digital, and business risk. Exposure is quantified in an Annualised Loss Expectancy (ALE).
- Drive action: Micro Focus customers can enhance the experience by integrating Galaxy directly into ArcSight for active cyber defense tied to their business requirements. This unique threat service enables ArcSight customers with actionable, industry-aligned cyber defense capability to limit exposure, drive timely actions, and drive better end-to-end visibility.
- Communicate to the business: Galaxy includes a digital communications program to provide visibility of the role of cybersecurity to senior executives, corporate directors, and key business stakeholders.
