IT management software specialist Micro Focus has unveiled an online resource to help chief information security officers (CISOs) as well as senior stakeholders ramp up enterprise cyber resilience.
John Delk, senior vice-president and general manager of security at Micro Focus, said that the set of tools, currently located online via this link, should help CISOs and board members alike avoid impacts on business continuity and performance in today’s tough times.
“Organisations that have the frameworks in place to assess, pivot and adapt will be in a better position to successfully navigate those challenges,” Delk said.
“The launch of this trusted new resource and the 360˚ assessment tool provides knowledge and means to better understand financial, operational, and information risk and how to evaluate and elevate their posture.”
A 15-20 minute online survey takes customer details and is aimed at helping customers understand where they are and how to get to where they want to be as an organisation, considering the steps to take to reach their goals.
Customers can use the assessment tool to identify their “strategy gaps” in line with the ever-changing cyber threat environment and “pivot at scale” for less cost, according to the announcement.
Other resources on the web page include a button to a sub-page outlining steps to evolve an organisation’s security posture, and to the CrowdStrike 2020 global threat report, where customers can submit their details to download and read the report.
The website also aggregates videos from six industry leaders, an info snapshot from IDC and links to a short Micro Focus brochure and selected thought leadership content from the likes of TechBeacon.com, the US Federal News Network, and PwC’s digital resilience centre.
Micro Focus believes that delivering the best outcomes and maintaining optimum business resilience will often require use of machine learning and automation or even AI in future.
Micro Focus offers tools for digital transformation focused on enterprise devops, hybrid IT management, predictive analytics and security, risk and governance. It aims to bridge the gap between existing and emerging technologies so customers can run and transform their businesses at the same time.
