Nehemiah Security’s AtomicEye RQ quantifies the effects of cyber exploits
Nehemiah Security released AtomicEye RQ (Risk Quantifier). Engineered to replicate a network environment and mathematically predict the effects of real cyber exploits, AtomicEye RQ provides executives with visibility and investment accountability, and security operators with a detailed, up-to-the minute understanding of the vulnerabilities in their environment. This knowledge makes it easier to secure the network and invest intelligently in cyber defense tools.
“Clients and CISOs have shared with us that securing their enterprise network with confidence and direction is a major obstacle that they are driven to find a solution for,” said Paul Farrell, CEO of Nehemiah Security. “Organizations are spending too much money on solutions and services to guess at the state of their security posture. AtomicEye RQ delivers analytical models capable of identifying critical network vulnerabilities, making it possible to measure and optimize an organization’s security configuration over time, even as changes are constantly occurring.”
