Asnières-Sur-Seine, France, January 2019 – Brainwave GRC’s growth rate continued to improve in 2018 in Western Europe and in North America. The annual revenue increased by 64% compared to the previous year, and the international sector is now established at 40% of the company’s global revenue.
This growth has been sustained by two new product offerings:“Brainwave Analytics-As-You-Go” (BAAYGO) and “Booster for Active Directory” (AD).
BAAYGO is a managed service product that relieves the security team of repetitive tasks such as periodic controls on account and access rights to infrastructures, applications and data. With this managed service, real time analyses and reports are consolidated and provided on a monthly basis for the decision makers. This offer, available as a subscription, can be up and running in a matter of days and does not require any software installation.
Booster for Active Directory facilitates the analysis and continuous follow-up of Active Directory. The solution offers more than 200 reports and analyses related to Active Directory: personal accounts, privileged accounts, groups, local administration rights, keyword policies and administration action follow-up. This turn-key solution is available in addition to the Brainwave Identity Analytics offering.
New innovative features have been implemented in 2018, including the “mashup dashboards,”the “role mining,”the new “review campaign manager” and Segregation Of Duties (SOD) wich works with PeopleSoft and Oracle EBS systems.
The outlook for economic growth looks very good for 2019. Consequently, Brainwave’s plans to hire ten new collaborators in Professional Services, R&D and the Marketing departments, both in the Paris, France, headquarters and the North-American subsidiary in Montreal, Canada.
Sébastien FAIVRE, CTO of Brainwave GRC:
“We are living intense moments. Digital transformation is changing drastically the cybersecurity’s landscape and profession immeasurably: infrastructures are decompartmentalized, cloud infrastructures are managed by third parties, multi-channel user’s access exists, Dev Ops applications and micro-services are available, and there has been an exploding volume of processed data.
For this raison, the CISO must become agile in order to support these challenges. He does this by reinforcing his relations with the legal department in order to manage the cloud provider’s contractual clauses and by deploying risk analysis methods in key departments to help them measure the impact of their decisions.
Finally, the only constant in this new landscape is the user’s identity. This is because, no matter the techniques and processes employed, managing people and their access rights to the different systems, applications and data remains the company’s responsibility.
The main goal of solutions such as Brainwave is to help CISO to enlighten Identity’s access as a real “lighthouse” in the mids of this digital storm, to make it possible to stay on course while reconciling security and change management towards the “all digital”.
