The primary focus of IT security risk management products is to quantify IT security risk and prioritize/support remediation activities. These products combine asset classification data, embedded security policy functions, current external threat data and the results of third-party VA scans to support aggregated risk analysis and vulnerability mitigation. Security risk management tools provide varying degrees of embedded support for asset classification and security configuration policy management. The analysis produced by these tools attempts to quantify the IT security business risk for resource groups that are aligned to business functions. The products also provide workflow for mitigation, as well as validation that a vulnerability has been eliminated.
