with a cost effective, automated out-of-the-box resource
know your cyber hygiene and maturity in minutes
to report on your risk management status against the Essential Eight controls
Essential 8 Auditor offers cost and time savings for Security and Risk teams, who typically run their own manual or 3rd party auditor assessment against the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Essential Eight controls. It lets you know your cyber maturity rating and what needs to be done – in minutes.
Typically, organisations follow a manual assessment process which can be disruptive and often delivers an inaccurate picture. Teams have the time-consuming task of responding to questionnaires that attempt to identify a range of issues from legacy assets, to unlicensed devices as well as cyber vulnerabilities. Responses to checklists can be subjective, and that is why the Essential 8 Auditor automates and formats this activity into reliable data-driven security reporting in minutes.
Utilising the Essential 8 Auditor application, analysts can easily connect to your organisation’s relevant data sources and endpoints, and within minutes, visualise your cyber maturity score, enabling mitigation by following a simple ‘to-do’ list. Equally importantly, each of the eight control reports highlights the coverage or proportion of the IT assets audited and assessed and any assets excluded from the measurement.
Whether it’s enterprise-scale or a smaller SMB environment the Essential 8 Auditor out-of-the-box software is quick to install and set up – not requiring external staff or specialists for implementation or use. Starting at a $6,500 investment, we find that our customers quickly generate payback on their investment through the regular use of this highly effective cyber security diagnostic and risk assessment application.
