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

COST EFFECTIVE, AUTOMATED OUT-OF-THE-BOX RESOURCE

Cost and Time Saving

Essential 8 Auditor offers cost and times savings for Security & Risk teams, who typically run their own manual or 3rd party auditor assessment against the Essential 8 controls. It equips you to know your cyber maturity rating within minutes.

Typically, organisations follow a manual assessment. Teams have the time-consuming task of identifying a range of issues from rogue or legacy machines, to unlicensed devices as well as cyber vulnerabilities – a task that can take weeks to complete. However, the Essential 8 Auditor automates and shrinks this activity to a few minutes, and can be repeated at any time.

Utilising the Essential 8 Auditor tool, 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.

Additionally, the Essential 8 Auditor is an out-of-the-box tool that 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 reporting tool.
