Verizon Business today launched a new service designed to offer firms an easy way to assess and manage security risk, and better plan security strategy and allocate related spending.
The Risk-Correlation Service is a managed security solution which automatically calculates risk, and displays the results in an easy-to-view scorecard-based format, according to the firm.
The service uses the Common Vulnerability Scoring System to rate IT vulnerabilities, evaluating the likelihood that an attack will be successful and the adverse impact on the business.
"With the Risk-Correlation Service added to its Managed Security Services suite, Verizon Business is offering a solution that encompasses security monitoring and addresses risk understandable to business," said Counse Broders, senior research director at analyst firm Current Analysis.
"Verizon Business is bringing together all the pieces of the security puzzle with an approach for customers that will help them better deal with the ever-changing security landscape."
