ControlUp Slashes Organisational Risk

by Geny Caloisi

ControlUp, a company specialising in Digital Employee Experience (DEX) management, has developed Secure DX, a real-time scanning, detection, and remediation solution to improve endpoint device security without compromising employee experience.

Secure DX reduces endpoint management complexity and empowers IT and cybersecurity teams to respond to security threats faster by continuously and autonomously spotting and resolving weaknesses.

There has never been a greater risk of endpoint security. Using employee devices in remote and hybrid work environments has expanded attack surfaces, making enterprises more vulnerable. Organisations are facing mounting, high-risk security vulnerabilities due to misconfigurations, account hijacking, unauthorised access, and insecure interfaces. The problem is real: nearly 70% of organisations admit they have experienced at least one cyber attack through an internet-facing asset.

“Never-ending waves of increasingly critical cybersecurity threats have IT overworked and frustrated, particularly related to the gaps in security at the endpoint,” said Asaf Ganot, ControlUp Executive Chairman and Co-Founder. “In response to this growing need, ControlUp is leading the expansion of the DEX market category to include security and compliance insights that will improve both IT and employee productivity. By providing deeper visibility into security data, IT can easily elevate its security posture and detect, prioritise, and remediate even the toughest security problems on thousands of devices in real-time. As a result, our customers can deliver a more secure and high-performing experience for their employees.”

Secure DX is a real-time scanning, detection and remediation solution for a more secure digital employee experience. Designed to enhance the security of Windows OS-based devices and applications, Secure DX enhances IT security by scanning and addressing vulnerabilities in real-time, ensuring compliance and reinforcing desktop security. The impact: a safer, elevated digital employee experience aligned with organisational goals for robust cybersecurity and enhanced operational resilience. Secure DX provides the following features:

  • Real-Time Detection. Collect inventory of operating systems (OS) and applications to find vulnerabilities, detect missing and outdated patches, and identify compliance risks on endpoint devices.
  • Smart Prioritisation. Easily understand prioritisation through an intuitive scoring system for remediation based on the exposure and risk to users, devices, and applications.
  • Continuous Remediation. Fix misconfigured OS and applications automatically with modern patch management when enrolling new devices or identifying new vulnerabilities.

This is an increasingly urgent issue that IT teams need to address. As a leading industry analyst told VentureBeat, “Many security teams today deal with staffing and skill shortages, and automating critical processes such as vulnerability management can aid such use cases… Anything that removes manual effort is always helpful [and] dealing with today’s threat volume is almost impossible without automation. Scanning for assets and vulnerabilities on them is the most common process that is fully automated today.”
