    All day

    SINGAPORE – APRIL 16, 2019 – INOK Systems has announced a partnership with BitSight, the Standard in Security Ratings. Through this partnership, INOK Systems will be able to help companies in this region to compete in the global marketplace while they proactively manage their cyber risk.

    As data breaches and cyber-attacks continue to make media headlines around the world, anything visible on the Internet is a potential opportunity for threat actors. Thus, organizations have to know their internet attack surface (digital footprint) and find ways to continuously gain visibility.

    Just as independent, data-driven credit ratings are useful to assess the creditworthiness of companies and individuals, security ratings can also provide meaningful measurements of an organization’s cybersecurity posture. BitSight creates security ratings on organizations by leveraging observable security performance data, including infections, vulnerabilities, risky behavior, and other critical factors. . This data provides unique insight for organizations to use in assessing their own security performance and that of their peers, competitors and business associates. BitSight’s market-leading security ratings platform provides the most comprehensive, trustworthy security performance information available in the marketplace today.

    “BitSight is the industry standard in security ratings,” said Serene Siow, BitSight’s Sales Director for the Asia Pacific region. “Over 1,700 companies around the globe work with BitSight to manage their own security performance, and the security of their vendor ecosystem, BitSight is also working with the world’s largest insurance carriers to assess and underwrite cybersecurity insurance. These experiences have established BitSight as the world’s leading provider of security ratings. We are excited to partner with INOK Systems to bring these solutions to the broader Asia Pacific region.”

    The Asia Pacific region lags behind the United States and the United Kingdom in the cyber security governance maturity. Ken Sng, CEO of INOK Systems, commented, “As businesses here compete in the global marketplace, they have to address the threat of cyber risk proactively. Adopting an automated, risk-driven, cyber security rating for their digital footprint will give these companies visibility of their cyber risk in real time.”

  • BMC Named A Strong Performer in Intelligent Application and Service Monitoring by Independent Research Firm
    All day

    HOUSTON – April 18, 2019 – BMC , a global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today announced that Forrester Research Inc. recognized the company as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Intelligent Application And Service Monitoring, Q2 2019. BMC received the highest score possible in the product innovation road map criterion.

    According to the Forrester Wave, “BMC Software has continually advanced its product portfolio over time through organic innovation and acquisitions. Recent releases have introduced AI/ML-driven monitoring for data center and multicloud environments and rebuilt the solution from the ground up in a modern, portable, and scalable architecture leveraging containers. This allows the product to deploy into a number of environments (e.g., hybrid cloud or on-premises) to meet the needs of a large cross-section of customers.”

    “We believe that the TrueSight platform’s position as a strong performer in this Forrester Wave reflects the capability of the solution to deliver robust, enterprise-class service and application-aware monitoring,” said David Cramer, President, Digital Service Operations, BMC. “In addition, earning the highest score possible in the product innovation road map criterion validates, in our opinion, our ongoing strategy to both deliver more advanced analytics and intelligent automation capabilities into the TrueSight platform, as well as continuously modernize our solutions to make them faster to deploy, easier to manage, and provide more rapid time to value for our customers.”

    The BMC solution evaluated in this report, TrueSight Operations Management, offers a holistic monitoring and event management solution that ingests data, events, logs, and metrics from many sources. It applies machine learning and advanced analytics combined with application and service aware context to help IT Ops teams predictively find and fix problems faster to reduce risk, increase efficiency, and drive down costs across IT Ops processes.

    “BMC Software’s TrueSight suite will assuredly benefit enterprises that are starting their journey into modernizing their applications yet also have a large number of legacy and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems to support,” stated the Forrester Wave.

    In this report, Forrester also recommended that customers should look for IASM solutions that offer ‘intelligent root cause analysis and remediation’. The TrueSight platform helps customers significantly reduce time to identify root cause and remediate issues faster with advanced correlation of millions of operational data points and log analytics deployed across complex infrastructure and application environments.

    Digital transformation is forcing IT organizations to reconsider how to ensure infrastructure and application performance. Growth in complexity of IT environments and data volume that IT Ops teams need to manage makes maintaining the health and performance of infrastructure and applications very difficult. Intelligent monitoring tools are needed as part of a holistic IT Operations Management (ITOM) strategy to minimize costs without compromising the health and performance of increasingly complex, diverse infrastructure and applications.

    “The artificial intelligence is really going to help us move from the reactive service model to proactive, and ultimately to predictive, where we’ll be able to see signs that there’s an impending failure and maybe remediate it before it happens, really saving our customer a lot of downtime. Without the TrueSight solution, we have no way of getting there,” said Chris Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Park Place Technologies.

    Forrester Research employed a rigorous process to create the Forrester Wave. Its evaluation of this report included a review of the 13 most significant vendors in the IASM market across 29 criteria.
