Proactively meet your compliance requirements with CyCognito.

Passing an audit is a challenge from start to finish. Day-to-day activities are often put on the back burner, and stress levels rise as your teams scramble to gather information in preparation.

CyCognito catalogs your externally exposed assets and tests them, providing governance risk compliance (GRC) teams the confidence they require to start the audit process. Well before the audit begins, they can assess the current state of exposure, the assets that need immediate attention, where the asset resides in your architecture, and obtain instructions on how to remediate the issue.

CyCognito maps discovered issues with top security frameworks and compliance standards, providing specific guidance for each violation as it relates to your objective. Automated evidence collection and continuous monitoring enable you to get ready for audit or prove attestation in minimal time. The result: faster audit times and lower stress levels for your teams.

In the EU? Address NIS2 before October 2024

Important new regulations such as NIS2 add to the complexity as European organizations dig in to understand impact and requirements. Organizations are proactively addressing NIS2 requirements through mapping from other security frameworks such as ISO27001, CIS and NIST 800-53, supported by CyCognito.


Early warning of violations

Organizations often learn of compliance issues during an audit, making it a challenge to respond effectively. Integrating CyCognito within your asset inventory and security testing workflow enables an early response and higher confidence.

  • Understand your compliance state at a glance
  • Reduce “unknown unknowns” that bottleneck an audit
  • Gain actionable insights to simplify remediation


Accurate prioritization guidance

You want your IT security teams aware of the most important issues that impact an audit. CyCognito provides your GRC teams with a continuously updated list of top issues and remediation steps to ensure issues can be resolved promptly.

  • Reduce reaction time with continuous evidence collection for all issues
