KuppingerCole-Bericht überprüft IT-GRC-Markt und nennt MetricStream als Pionier

MetricStream hat heute bekannt gegeben, dass das Unternehmen in dem KuppingerCole Vendor Report mit dem Titel „MetricStream: Bridging the Gap Between Business GRC and IT GRC“ („MetricStream: die Brücke zwischen Business-GRC und IT-GRC“) als Firma mit starken Lösungen für Governance, Risk und Compliance (GRC, Unternehmensführung, Risikomanagement und Compliance) aufgeführt wurde. Der Bericht wurde von KuppingerCole, einem führenden europäischen Analyseunternehmen für Informationssicherheit in klassischen Umgebungen und in der Cloud, herausgegeben.

Durch Analyse der IT-GRC-Branche werden die Herausforderungen bei Sicherheit und Compliance herausgehoben, die sich für Unternehmen aufgrund der vermehrten Nutzung von Virtualisierungstechnologien und externen IT-Services stellen, sowie die neu entstehenden Anforderungen an die Compliance. Laut dem Bericht „befinden sich Unternehmen in der Situation, dass sie hinsichtlich nach außen gerichteter Prozesse, der Nutzer und der verwendeten IT-Services mit exponentiellen Veränderungen konfrontiert sind“. Was Unternehmen heute brauchen, ist eine IT-GRC-Lösung, die bei geschäftlichen Veränderungen flexibel ist, sich mit der Unternehmens-GRC integriert, entstehende Risiken bei der Informationssicherheit und Compliance managt und die Unternehmens-Performance überwacht.

Risiken bei IT- und Cybersicherheit sind für die meisten europäischen Unternehmen ein wachsender Grund zur Beunruhigung. Mit zunehmender Aufmerksamkeit der Medien für Datenschutz und Datenpannen wächst bei europäischen Unternehmen das Bewusstsein für das Risiko von Datenlecks bei der heutigen dichteren Nachrichtenumgebung und ihrem Einfluss auf das Geschäftsleben.

Nach Untersuchung des IT-GRC-Markts heißt es bei KuppingerCole, dass das starke und integrierte Portfolio von GRC-Lösungen von MetricStream mit klar bestimmten Kontrollmöglichkeiten, Sicherheitsfunktionen für Risiken und Bedrohungen durch soziale Netzwerke, Cloud- und Virtualisierungstechnologien sowie Kapazitäten ausgestattet ist, mit deren Hilfe Unternehmen Informationssicherheit, IT-Risiken und Unternehmens-GRC miteinander verbinden können, um die geschäftlichen Leistungen zu steigern.

Vasant Balasubramanian, Vice President für Produktmanagement bei MetricStream, sagt dazu: „Der Bericht von KuppingerCole ist ein Zeugnis unserer umfangreichen Kapazitäten bei IT-GRC und der Innovationen, die wir auf den Markt gebracht haben, um komplexen Sicherheits- und Compliance-Risiken in einer immer stärker virtualisierten und mobilen Welt gerecht zu werden. Mit den IT-GRC-Lösungen von MetricStream können Unternehmen GRC-Prozesse firmenweit in Übereinstimmung bringen, Prozesse der IT-GRC an solche der Unternehmens-GRC anpassen und Bottom-Up-IT-Control-Prozesse mit Top-Down-Risiko-Intelligence integrieren.“

Mit der Übernahme der vPanorama-Cloud-GRC-Technologie gestattet es MetricStream seinen Kunden, Einhaltung von Regeln (regulatorische Compliance), Datenschutzanforderungen, Sicherheitsbedrohungen, Risiken durch Schwachstellen sowie Steuerungsgrößen innerhalb eines Gesamtspektrums virtueller Assets in der Cloud sowie die virtuelle Infrastruktur vor Ort zu managen.

Martin Kuppinger, Unternehmensgründer und leitender Analyst bei KuppingerCole, sagt: „Aus der IT-Perspektive hat die GRC den Schritt von technischen, systemorientierten Ansätzen hin zur Informations- und Service-Governance vollzogen. Auf der Grundlage von Parametern wie Sicherheit, Funktionalität, Benutzerfreundlichkeit, Integrationsfähigkeit und Interoperabilität fanden wir die IT-GRC-Lösungen von MetricStream gut durchdacht und ausgereift. Die Plattform unterstützt auch den Bedarf von Unternehmen und integriert sich in andere Punktlösungen für IT-Sicherheit und GRC, um einen allumfassenden Ansatz für Unternehmens-GRC zu bieten.“

Der Report empfiehlt auch, dass Unternehmen auf der Suche nach GRC-Lösungen die Anbieter von GRC-Lösungen sorgfältig überprüfen. Wörtlich heißt es in dem Bericht: „Es gibt unterschiedliche Anbieter mit völlig unterschiedlichen Angeboten. Während einige davon Lösungen für Unternehmens-GRC anbieten, die sich auf spezifische Geschäftsaspekte konzentrieren und die IT-GRC ignorieren, gibt es andere, die Unternehmens-GRC mit Unterstützung von IT-Kontrollen anbieten und sich in spezifische IT-GRC-Lösungen integrieren. Unternehmen müssen GRC-Anbieter daher auf der Grundlage der Frage überprüfen und analysieren, ob ihre Leitpläne an die Entwicklungen in der Unternehmenslandschaft angepasst sind und ob die aktuellen Angebote ausgereift genug sind, um den wechselnden geschäftlichen Bedarf von Unternehmen zu unterstützen.“

Vasant Balasubramanian sagt weiter: „MetricStream kann auf eine gute Erfolgsbilanz beim Anbieten von IT-GRC-Lösungen auf dem europäischen Markt verweisen; die aktuellste davon ist die Umsetzung der Lösung eines der weltweit größten internationalen Anbieter von Online-Sportwetten. Dies wird dem Verständnis von MetricStream für globale Märkte und für den spezifischen GRC-Bedarf von Unternehmen an unterschiedlichen Standorten zugeschrieben.“

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
