To help organisations implement enterprise wide IT and information security metrics programmes
ClearPoint Metrics and Imperva have formed a partnership to integrate Imperva’s SecureSphere Data Security Suite with ClearPoint Metrics’ Security Performance Manager for developing a new set of security performance and risk metrics.
The metrics are expected to provide visibility into the state, quality and effectiveness of data security investments for chief information security officers, auditors as well as business managers concerned about security.
Imperva said that ClearPoint’s Security Performance Manager will leverage information from its suite to offer intelligence in the form of performance metrics to assess the business impact and effectiveness of key information security programmes.
The SecureSphere Data Security Suite reportedly offers a complete lifecycle for web application and database security in a single platform. By securing transactions from the end user through the web application to the database, the SecureSphere Data Security Suite is expected to offer data security.
According to ClearPoint, its purpose-built product for CIOs and CISOs enables organisations to implement enterprise wide IT and information security metrics programmes. Its portfolio of adapters provides connections to a number of security and business applications, including threat managers, anti-virus, incident managers, intrusion detection and prevention, identity and access managers.
