In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

- Unlike other security solutions, the RiskSense Platform manages cyber risks across an enterprise's entire attack surface -- the network, applications, web, databases and even IoT devices.

- This allows RiskSense to validate the business criticality and exploitability of vulnerabilities, in order to prioritize and orchestrate remediation actions quickly and efficiently.

- RiskSense is used by Fortune 200 customers, including the third largest telecommunications company in the United States to deliver advanced managed security services to its client base. The company has experienced 100 percent year-over-year growth and rapid expansion of its employee base.

Brief Overview

RiskSense provides an “attacker’s view” of an organization’s attack surface, including Internet of Things devices, to proactively predict susceptibility to threats and validate whether vulnerabilities are exploitable. It quantifies risk based on diagnostic and operational data, and the security controls in place that can prevent a breach.

RiskSense provides the following unique capabilities:

Visibility, prioritization and actionable remediation recommendations to shrink an organization’s attack surface and overall cyber risk exposure.
Detailed attribution of all critical vulnerabilities mapped to known exploits, malware, and threats, supported with detailed remediation action plans.
Identifies vulnerabilities mostly likely to be used by adversaries to carry out infiltration as well as post exploitation techniques for launching lateral attacks across the enterprise

RiskSense continues to address the biggest cyber risk challenges enterprises and government entities face. RiskSense recently expanded its RiskSense Attack Surface Validation capabilities beyond networks, Web applications, and databases to IoT devices and Operational Technology (OT) networks that underpin critical infrastructure, energy, and manufacturing operations.
The company’s founders collaborated with the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community, developed Computational Analysis of Cyber Terrorism against the U.S. (CACTUS), Support Vectors Machines for Intrusion Detection, Behavior Risk Analysis of Vicious Executables (BRAVE), and the Strike Team Program.
