SolarWinds MSP Enhances Risk Intelligence With Expanded Data Breach Risk Scan

New Feature Helps Users Better Identify Security Vulnerabilities Including Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

SolarWinds MSP, a leader in delivering comprehensive, scalable IT service management solutions to IT solution providers and MSPs, recently announced it has enhanced its SolarWinds®Risk Intelligence offering with an Expanded Data Breach Risk Scan (ExDBRS), helping users better discover and identify risks from security vulnerabilities stored on endpoint devices, and enhancing regulatory compliance capabilities.

SolarWinds Risk Intelligence is designed to quickly identify application and OS vulnerabilities in customers’ networks, discover how hackers may get to this data, and then calculate the real-time risk of a data breach and assess the potential financial liability. The Expanded Data Breach Risk Scan is designed to be useful when regulatory compliance is critical, delivering the ability to:

  • Identify critical security vulnerabilities such as unpatched operating systems and applications
  • Highlight device settings that don’t meet baseline configuration requirements through a new technical safeguards check
  • Find 60+ types of sensitive personally identifiable information (PII)

The Extended Data Breach Risk Scan produces a potential financial impact number that helps MSPs and their customers assess the risk for a specific device, across an organization’s devices, and the changes over time.

“Sensitive data left exposed on systems poses a great risk to your business and your customers; by having the ability to identify critical security vulnerabilities such as unpatched operating systems, you can help reduce the risk of compromise and help keep your customer data more secure,” said Tim Brown, vice president of security, SolarWinds MSP. “With the Expanded Data Breach Risk Scan, users have a view of more than 60 types of PII, giving them greater knowledge of which sensitive data is stored on their network. This makes the daily maintenance of keeping it secure easier and—if requested—simpler to edit or remove.”
