Livermore, California (EastBayDaily) — Allgress today launched Insight Risk Management Suite (IRMS) Version 5 to further empower Global 2000 organizations to more effectively manage risk with less complexity at reduced costs. Allgress bridges the gap between strategic risk management and IT operations by intelligently assessing governance, security and compliance information and aligning them with business-oriented priorities for more predictable business outcomes.

Allgress IRMS Version 5 raises the bar for automated risk management with the addition of rules based prioritization and remediation that align with top business priorities. IRMS consumes feeds from existing network vulnerability products, application vulnerability solutions, threat management and data leak protection platforms to rapidly render a picture of risk posture without unnecessary duplication of technology.

“As Corporate Data Breaches continue to grab headlines it is increasingly clear that many organizations struggle to implement a mature Risk Governance Program,” said Jeff Kushner, Allgress Chief Marketing Officer. “Allgress IRMS Version 5 is designed to equip non-IT and IT business stakeholders with the information they need to clearly articulate their risk posture in terms of threats to profitability and shareholder value to secure the resources and budget to avoid business impact.”

Built on a proven platform, IRMS Version 5 provides enterprise IT and non-IT stake holders with the benefits of:     Superior time-to-value – Risk assessments generated in a matter of days, not months;     Ease-of-use – Advanced visual user-interface and framework provide efficiency by leveraging integrated repository and coupled workflow;     Leverage existing solutions – Out-of-the-box integration with industry-leading solutions for quicker-time-to-value and less duplication of technology;     Zero infrastructure architecture– Flexibility to install as a hosted SaaS application or as an on-premise solution to reduce implementation time and complexity.
