In an industry marked by constant evolution and escalating cyber threats, Fusion offers a comprehensive suite of features designed to meet the unique demands of cloud-native environments. A majority of security products are designed to serve large organizations, making them unsuitable for smaller organizations due to high cost or complexity. Fusion can be used by organizations of all sizes, from startups to large enterprises as it not only automates workflows but does so in a manner which is simple and intuitive while being highly scalable.

How does Fusion simplify Information Security Workflows?

Fusion contains a wide spectrum of innovative cybersecurity management features:

1. Cloud-based Accessibility: Fusion is offered as a multi-modular, microservices-driven, cloud-based Software as a Service [SaaS]. Users can seamlessly access the platform, from any location and on any computer. This not only eliminates the hassle of complex setups but also provides a plug-and-play [PnP] experience, aligning perfectly with the agile nature of cloud-native organizations.

2. Centralized Record Management: Fusion’s centralized and automated record management capability facilitates easy retrieval and utilization of crucial information. All data uploaded to Fusion, or created through its suite of cybersecurity modules, are secured by industry-standard security algorithms and secure architecture.

3. Workflow Automation: Historically, the InfoSec function of enterprises has been encumbered under heavy workloads. Fusion introduces efficiencies and effectiveness through workflow automation. The platform significantly reduces the time required for conducting and completing audits, managing remediation tasks, creating and maintaining documentation, tracking incidents, conducting continuity tests and managing an infosec awareness education program. Follow-ups, notifications and alerts are automated thus eliminating the need for offline reminders. Several compliance activities are asynchronous thus removing dependencies that result in slow downs.

4. Simplified Compliance Management: Navigating compliance requirements becomes a breeze with Fusion. The platform's intuitive features simplify compliance management, whether it is for conforming to industry-specific standards such as ISO 27001 or SOC 2 or addressing regulatory compliance requirements such as EU GDPR or HIPAA. Fusion's capabilities cover a wide range of cybersecurity standards, global regulations and industry frameworks.

A modular approach to Information Security

Fusion is made up of several Modules, each one meant to automate and streamline a different aspect of cybersecurity compliance management.

1. Auditor for Audit Management: This module provides a rapid and accurate assessment of an organization's readiness in terms of security and compliance. Supporting various frameworks such as ISO 27001, EU GDPR, SOC, Digital PDPA, PCI DSS, HIPAA and many more, Auditor results in 50% faster audits and 60% cost reduction.

2. Arc for Compliance Management: This module acts as a command center for compliance management, offering a comprehensive dashboard for tracking remediation and compliance objectives and activities. Arc streamlines operations, ensuring real-time updates and collaboration among relevant stakeholders. All compliance tasks from the various Fusion modules pour into Arc automatically where the right people can handle them centrally and efficiently.

3. Documenter for ISMS Management: This module is a streamlined document management system [DMS] which simplifies the creation, editing, review and approval of policies, procedures, processes and other documentation. Creation of ISMS documents is fully automated and instantaneous. Workflows for review, approval and collaboration are inbuilt.

4. Educator for InfoSec Education Program: This module is dedicated to the learning initiatives that are focused on information security awareness and education. It facilitates multi-modal Information Security Awareness training programs. The ability to conduct assessments is built-in and the success of the education program is measured through the real-time stats dashboard.

5. Mitigator for Risk Management: All security standards and frameworks are risk-based, so any security and compliance management system is incomplete without a full-fledged risk management system. This module automatically prescribes risks based on the context of the organization and is an important aspect that external auditors expect. Risks management can be done through prescribed risks which are assessed using industry-standard risk assessment methods. Custom organisation-risks can be created and tracked just as easily.

6. Continuer for Business Continuity Management: A comprehensive business continuity management program, spanning diverse scenarios across multiple departments is necessary to ensure that an organization can continue to function during adverse conditions and has tested its ability to recover from disasters. Its user-friendly interface seamlessly incorporates the ability to record observations and learnings from each test, allowing for continuous improvement. The module facilitates efficient collaboration by effortlessly adding required personnel to execute and validate the test scenarios. With the capability to upload and manage evidentiary materials, Continuer ensures a thorough and well-documented Business Continuity Management process.

7. Investigator for Incident Management: Investigator specializes in Incident Management, addressing critical needs for organizations in tracking, analyzing and responding to security incidents effectively. It serves as a centralized repository, systematically organizing all pertinent information and evidence related to each incident, facilitating thorough investigations. Its functionality extends to tracking and managing the actions required for investigation and remediation, ensuring a streamlined and accountable response process. Additionally, it generates detailed Incident Reports, including the ability to record the root causes of incidents, hence fostering a proactive approach to prevent their recurrence.

8. Remediator for Vulnerability Management: A module specifically designed to streamline and strengthen remediation of vulnerabilities identified during Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing [VAPT], Remediator serves as a centralized hub for tracking the status and progress of each discovered vulnerability. This module logs comprehensive details about each vulnerability such as the nature, discovery date and timelines for remediation along with evidence of remediation. Notably, Remediator facilitates efficient accountability by tracking responsible parties for remediating vulnerabilities, including information on who reported the vulnerability.

9. Enumerator for Inventory Management: Enumerator is dedicated to simplifying and optimizing IT Asset Management for organizations. This module functions as a comprehensive repository, systematically listing and tracking all IT assets. Enumerator provides a holistic view of the entire IT infrastructure, allowing for efficient monitoring and management of assets throughout their lifecycle. It reduces the possibility of shadow IT within the organisation which has become a growing threat. From hardware components to software licenses, Enumerator ensures accurate and up-to-date records, promoting transparency and accountability.

Looking ahead, Neumetric has exciting plans to introduce additional modules focused on other areas of cyber security. With the addition of these modules, Fusion's capabilities will be further enhanced and organizations will have even more automation at their disposal to improve their information security posture. The excitement surrounding these upcoming modules highlights Neumetric's dedication to ongoing innovation, guaranteeing that Fusion stays at the forefront of tackling the changing issues faced by cloud-native enterprises.
