How Our IT and Cyber Risk Management Software Helps You
Centralized Repository for Assets, Processes, Threats, and Vulnerabilities
Define and maintain business entities such as IT risks, assets, threats, vulnerabilities, processes, and controls in a central repository on the MetricStream Platform. Map IT assets to threats and vulnerabilities along with associated details such as description, category, hierarchy, ownership, visibility, and validity.
Streamlined Threat and Vulnerability Management
Monitor the threat landscape, zero-day advisories, and threat bulletins from leading industry sources. Import data from multiple vulnerability scanners and generate combined risk rating for each asset, while orchestrating the remediation process workﬂow.
Advanced IT Risk and Control Assessments
Assess and manage IT risks and controls in an integrated manner using industry standard frameworks such as ISO 27001 and NIST. Conduct advanced assessments by configuring risk scores and ranking them using a simple risk matrix. Roll up the scores to an assessed entity or organization.
Cyber Risk Quantification and Simulation
Assess your cyber risk exposure in dollar values, using the product’s Cyber Risk Quantification capabilities. With support from the FAIR model, provide monetary impact of cyber risks like data breaches, identity theft, infrastructure downtime, etc. Create simulation techniques to transform range-based estimates into more accurate values. Enable executives to prioritize cyber investments better, driving alignment between cyber programs and business goals.
AI-Powered Intelligent Issue Management
Identify and document issues from IT risk assessments. Initiate a closed-loop process of investigation, root cause analysis, and remediation. Define rules to auto-detect vulnerability patterns among assets and to auto-trigger remediation of issues or incidents. Leverage AI/ML to quickly identify issues based on relation and recommend issue classification.
Comprehensive Visibility into Cyber Risks with Intuitive Dashboards and Reports
Built-in dashboards, user-configurable risk reports, heat maps, and role-based views aggregate relevant risk, threat, vulnerability, and control data for comprehensive visibility into overall security posture. Gain a 360-degree view of the information through the product’s data browser.

Frequently Asked Questions
The tool supports IT risk documentation, control definition and management, multi-dimensional risk assessments, vulnerability consolidation and prioritization, issue identification, and implementation of recommendations and remediation plans, along with reporting and analytics.
A built-in integration engine imports and consolidates threat and vulnerability information from various sources into the MetricStream Platform. This centralized repository helps map threat and vulnerability data to assets and other business entities, enabling you to clearly visualize your information security program library and security posture, providing a unified view of the assets, asset classes, areas of compliance, and their relationships.
Using the product, you can define the scope and schedule for each assessment based on your unique requirements or industry standard frameworks such as ISO 27001, NIST CSF, CSA, and more. You can identify, quantify, monitor, and manage IT risks in an integrated manner. The product enables you to bring together all IT risk assessment related data, including a reusable library of risks and their corresponding controls, as well as results from individual assessments, key risk indicators, issues, and remediation plans. Streamline the risk assessment process through the product’s workflow capabilities and prioritize risk response strategies with the help of graphical risk heat maps.
MetricStream provides a flexible framework that enables you to measure, manage, and report cyber risk in monetary value. This Cyber Risk Quantification framework enables customers to build models to quantify their cyber risks. The framework supports FAIR, in addition to other methodologies like ISO 27005, NIST SP 800-53, CMU OCTAVE, and COBIT 5. With FAIR, asset-based risks can be quantified per their threat and vulnerability exposure, and the final dollar value at risk can be calculated.
