RSA 2007: Version 5.0 of RSAM risk management and compliance framework launched
Relational Security Corporation launched today at the RSA Conference 2007 its much anticipated RSAM v5.0. This new version of RSAM provides many great enhancements to the existing RSAM v4.5 feature set, while also integrating with Relational Security’s powerful new assessment & reporting modules.
Relational Security’s flagship 5th generation product, RSAM, is built on an open and flexible framework that quickly adapts to any institution’s environment. RSAM blends an intuitive multi-user, web-based interface with practical, enhanced risk assessment methodology that can be used to assess risks, controls, and the compliance of technical, physical, and administrative assets, business functions, processes and more. The underlying principle of the RSAM technology is to gather intelligent and consistent information to help institutions qualify and quantify risk based on business criticality and compliance requirements. Simple, practical and actionable reports are easy to interpret at the executive, management and technical levels, making it easy to identify gaps & prioritize remediation opportunities.
With the release of the RSAM 5.0 Suite customers may now use the new RSAM findings module to capture incidents, Ad-hoc issues, specific vulnerability data from scans, and other forms of information that do not conform to a questionnaire. The RSAM findings module integrates with the core RSAM product features, such as workflow, permission assignment, data import, and e-mail notification. The new RSAM 5.0 Suite includes:
” RSAM 5.0 (upgrade to the RSAM v4.5)
” RSAM Web Reporting module
” RSAM Dashboards module
” RSAM Findings module
“The value and use of the RSAM Findings module is only limited to one’s imagination” said Kevin Day – CTO of Relational Security Corporation. A few examples and use-case scenarios include incident tracking, integration of vulnerability data and other data from home-grown or commercial tools, SOX testing, ad-hoc audit findings or building customized ad-hoc findings categories.
RSAM’s road-tested control templates/domains provide comprehensive libraries of controls to choose from, making it easier for clients to roll out their assessments. In addition to the assessment control templates available from Relational Security (such as HIPAA, PCI, GLBA/FFIEC, NIST, ISO 17799, TSP, SOX, COBIT and more). RSAM provides the ability to add in-house or customized “standards” or “compliance” modules, making RSAM a complete solution for an institution’s risk and compliance needs.
