Brinqa Cyber Risk Services were built for security; transforming security, context and threat data into knowledge-driven insights that empower organizations to own their cyber risk.

The enterprise technology infrastructure has undergone significant changes in the last few years which has driven by the push for digital transformation; and the emergence and rapid adoption of new infrastructure technologies like cloud, containers, mobile devices, IoT, and OT.

While most organizations have well defined policies and processes for responding to vulnerabilities, findings, alerts, and other security gaps in their traditional network and datacenter infrastructure, these practices often don’t extend to newer technologies like cloud infrastructure.

As enterprise technology ecosystems continue to evolve and grow more complex, the need to address these challenges is more urgent than ever.

Organizations need to be able to connect, model and analyze relevant security, context and threat data to deliver knowledge-driven insights for vulnerability prioritization, remediation and reporting.

Brinqa™, a leader in Cyber Risk Management was recognized multiple 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards from American Security Today for its Risk Management Platform.

Brinqa Cyber Risk Services earned the Gold Award in Best Cyber Security Risk Management Solution awards category. Additionally, the Brinqa Vulnerability Risk Service was also named the Silver Award winner in the Best Vulnerability Management awards category.
