Our cyber security products span from our next gen SIEM used in the most secure government and critical infrastructure environments, to automated cyber risk reporting applications for commercial and government organisations of all sizes.
Leading Australian cyber security firm, Huntsman Security has launched a new product that will enable companies to assess in real-time how effective their security defences are. Affectionately known as ‘The Auditor’, it is a self-install, agentless product that gives internal and external stakeholders a clear objective measure of an organisation’s cyber resilience.
As government and commercial organisations continue to struggle with their exposure to cyber-risk, The Auditor gives instant visibility of an organisation’s security control effectiveness by providing cyber security performance metrics against the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Essential 8 mitigation strategies identified in the Australian Government cyber security framework.
While the ‘Top Four’ controls are mandatory for Australian federal government departments, the eight controls collectively reflect the best practice recommendations by other Governments such as the UK and the USA. In NSW, state government policy requires a report detailing a maturity assessment against the ACSC Essential 8 by 31 August each year.
The Auditor compliments the successful “Essential 8 Scorecard” which was launched by Huntsman Security in 2018. With the Scorecard, CIOs are given a continuous, enterprise-wide view of their organisation’s performance against the Essential 8 controls. As a Computer Aided Audit Tool (CAAT), the Essential 8 Auditor comes into its own where a continuous view isn’t required. It delivers a real-time comprehensive audit of cyber posture.
Manual audits typically only deliver an out of date ‘security snapshot’ that can result in vulnerability blind spots. The Auditor sets a new benchmark in cyber auditing and can be used for compliance reporting and annual attestations. It also serves as a management tool to support security specialists in their pursuit of improving their security posture. The first release of the Essential 8 Auditor is scheduled for August 2019.
“No matter how good or detailed your criteria for effective security, if you only measure it once a year, it won’t give auditors a representative view of operations and it certainly won’t enable the proactive management of risk that security teams and executives aspire to”, said Peter Woollacott, CEO and Founder of Huntsman Security.
Huntsman Security, 2019 Australian Technology Competition semi-finalists, will be at the Australian Security Summit 2019 in Canberra on 9 July with CEO, Peter Woollacott available for enquiries on the new product. Come and meet the team of experts at the AuSec Summit, booth B07, Hotel Realm Canberra.
