Why organisations choose
Huntsman Security’s Essential 8 Auditor application to
manage compliance & cyber risk


Cost and Time Saving

Essential 8 Auditor offers cost and time savings for Security Risk teams, who typically run their own manual or 3rd party auditor assessment against the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Essential Eight controls. It lets you know your cyber maturity rating and what needs to be done – in minutes.

Typically, organisations follow a manual assessment which can be disruptive and often delivers an inaccurate picture. Teams have the time-consuming task of responding to questionnaires that attempt to identify a range of issues from legacy machines, to unlicensed devices as well as cyber vulnerabilities. Responses to checklists can be subjective, and that is why the Essential 8 Auditor automates and distils this activity into reliable data-driven security reporting in minutes.

Utilising the Essential 8 Auditor application, analysts can easily connect to all of your organisation’s data sources and endpoints, and within minutes, visualise your cyber maturity score, enabling mitigation by following a simple ‘to do’ list. Equally importantly, each of the eight control reports highlight the proportion of the overall endpoints audited and assessed, and any assets excluded from the measurement.

Whether it’s enterprise scale or a smaller SMB environment the Essential 8 Auditor out-of-the-box software is quick to install and set up – not requiring external staff or specialists for implementation or use. Starting at a $6,500 investment, we find that our customers quickly generate payback on their investment within the first few weeks of use, with this highly effective cyber security diagnostic and risk assessment application.

Informed Oversight for Risk Management & Compliance

For organisations with growing IT governance obligations or those that simply prioritise risk and cyber security management, the Essential 8 Auditor can be of major assistance in your performance improvement and security uplift program. It provides an evidential trail of performance, and pinpoints the areas of concern, to guide next steps for both IT and Executive teams. With its comprehensive Attack Surface Management (ASM) capabilities the Essential 8 Auditor automatically verifies your IT assets, measures vulnerabilities and reports any areas of changing cyber risk.

The Essential 8 Auditor is a quantitative and highly scalable risk measurement solution that identifies an easy-to-follow remediation list, and empowers both IT and Executive teams to guide their security strategy with the automated checks and balances that align with the ACSC’s Essential Eight security controls.

For Federal Government departments required to report against the Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF) or State based departments seeking to assess compliance with their State or Territory’s Information Security Policies, the Essential 8 Auditor is a simple solution to inform improvement and manage compliance.

The full range of readily available reporting ensures that directors, management and staff, can maintain end-to-end transparency across the entire organisation. This is fully supported from the ground up with verifiable quantitative risk measurement and data-driven security decision making.
