New Vulnerability Management Module for GRC and Technical Assurance




The latest release from 6clicks is their vulnerability management solution that bridges the traditional world of GRC and technical assurance. The 6clicks vulnerability management solution is for cybersecurity professionals, advisors and managed service providers (MSPs) looking for an integrated and more effective way to manage and communicate the holistic cybersecurity risk profile.

 Along with integrating data from leading vulnerability scanning tools from vendors like Qualys and Nessus, 6clicks also provides the opportunity to define custom mappings to easily import vulnerabilities from any system. Vulnerabilities with their associated CVEs are then automatically linked to assets and easily correlated with risks and issues for remediation and ongoing prioritization.

 “Our vulnerability management module presents a huge opportunity for cybersecurity professionals and makes it so much easier to manage cybersecurity risk overall – converging technical assurance with risk, governance and compliance,” 

Dr Heather Buker, Global CTO of 6clicks, explained.

In a nutshell, the diagram below explains how the vulnerability management module works.


As Jim Tiller, Global CISO at Nash Squared explained,

…risk is the bridge between GRC and vulnerability management.”

The 6clicks fully integrated GRC platform makes this possible by providing business context in risk management terms around the vulnerabilities.

The partnership opportunity for advisors and MSPs

For cybersecurity advisors and MSPs, the vulnerability management module is an opportunity to provide a further integrated service delivery offering, including managed services or vCISO. Along with streamlining service delivery, there’s a revenue-sharing opportunity as a 6clicks reseller or referral partner.

William Birchett, President of Logos Systems and part of the global vCISO network, explained that with 6clicks Vulnerability management, the opportunity for MSPs and those providing vCISO offerings is huge. He says,

[vCISOs] can now understand what they’re communicating, how the organization’s risk is impacted by vulnerabilities, and how to prioritize [the vulnerabilities].”


Pricing for the 6clicks vulnerability management module is made available via 6clicks partners or directly. More information is available here.
