AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brinqa™, a leader in Cyber Risk Management, today announced it has received multiple 2019 “ASTORS” Homeland Security Awards from American Security Today for its Risk Management Platform. Brinqa Cyber Risk Services earned the Gold Award as the Best Cyber Security Risk Management Solution awards category winner. Its Brinqa Vulnerability Risk Service was also named the Silver Award winner in the Best Vulnerability Management awards category.

Brinqa Cyber Risk Services were built for security; transforming security, context and threat data into insights that empower organizations to own their cyber risk. Brinqa Cyber Risk Graph – the knowledge graph for cybersecurity – connects all relevant security and business data, establishes a common risk language, and powers cybersecurity insights and outcomes. Brinqa Cyber Risk Services apply this knowledge to uniquely inform risk management strategies, standardize security data management and analysis, improve communication between teams, deliver actionable insights, and automate risk remediation.

“ASTORS’ nominees are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” said Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today. “Brinqa was selected for these two awards due to its ability to uniquely transform data collected into powerful insights and strategies for organizations to address cyber risk. Brinqa differs from other risk/vulnerability management solutions because it connects all security and business data, delivers a common risk view and language, and enables cybersecurity insights and risk remediation.”

The program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit and intelligence to end users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets, in the acknowledgement of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.

“It is rewarding to be selected for multiple ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards by American Security Today, including being named as the best cyber security risk management solution,” said Syed Abdur, Brinqa Senior Director of Products. “To address cyber risk effectively, organizations need a solution that accurately represents their unique technology environment and leverages information from all relevant security, IT, and business data sources to identify and address the most impactful and critical risks in their IT infrastructure. Brinqa’s proprietary Cyber Risk Graph and industry-leading integration ecosystem help customers establish a consistent cyber risk management strategy that spans all security solutions and attack surfaces.
