Threat Hunter Blog - Welcome

This blog has bounced around for quite some time now. It is my sincere hope that it has found a permanent home here. Time, I guess, will tell. For those who have not read earlier versions of this a bit of explanation is in order. For those who have, there are a few changes that I hope you'll appreciate.

Product Reviews

Acuity Risk Management STREAM Integrated Risk Manager

STREAM is an integrated risk management tool delivered as a software product consisting of a database server, an application server and a client component.

This is a very specialized product. Its premise – and a good one it is – is that the firewall(s) manage the risk in any system.

This is an interesting product. It focuses on taking GRC into an IT environment and aligning it with business priorities to manage security and compliance.
