Nehemiah Security Named 2018 Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Award Winner

RQ Cyber Risk Platform Recognized as a Next Gen Solution for Risk Management

TYSONS, VA – May 1, 2018 – Nehemiah Security, an internationally recognized supplier of cybersecurity software and services to enterprise and government organizations, today announced that the company’s cyber risk platform, RQ, was named the 2018 Cyber Defense Magazine Infosec Award winner for Next Gen in Risk Management. Selected from over 3,000 companies, this year’s winners represent innovative market leaders on the cutting edge of Infosec technology. RQ’s Risk Engine enables organizations to identify the risks facing their critical business assets in the event of a breach, facilitating informed conversations around mitigating those risks and reducing business impacts.

“Nehemiah is honored to receive the next gen award for risk management from Cyber Defense Magazine. We truly believe in the effectiveness and forward-thinking approach of our platform, and thank CDM for recognizing this work,” said Paul Farrell, Co-Founder and CEO of Nehemiah Security. “RQ allows organizations to pinpoint cyber risks and quantify the business impacts so that they can prioritize security resources based upon the financial impact of potential breach. This platform is pioneering effective cyber risk management through financially-quantified data and automation like no other company in the market is doing.”

Today’s cyber landscape represents a complex and multi-dimensional space where smart business decisions must be made on a continual basis, yet security teams and executives are challenged by ineffective communication. To combat this, RQ elevates cyber risk to the status of a business risk by aggregating data from business units, IT environments, and threat intelligence to automatically identify an organization’s unique risks and compute the business loss they pose to operations. RQ leverages verifiable data to quantify cyber risks in financial terms, providing specific data for the business to act on, or transfer risks intelligently.

“With advances in cyber-crime, new forms of malware and ransomware, cyber-terrorism and nation state cyber-espionage, Cyber Defense Magazine is pleased to acknowledge the innovators who are not only helping organizations get ahead of the next attack, but also helping them take back control of their critical business systems and data and prepare for regulatory compliance,” said Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

RQ empowers businesses to take control of their risk assessment process and provides security leadership with direction on methods for risk mitigation and projected ROI computations to cut through the noise and deliver actionable information in common business language. By constantly managing the ties between business applications and technical assets and correlating the exposures to known attacker scenarios, RQ automatically computes security as a business risk in financial terms. Nehemiah’s RQ platform promotes efficient communication and mitigation, and saves organizations time and money through its automated risk assessment process.
