How Security Risk Software Works

Some risk assessment product developers assume that only experts will be using their platforms.

SECTARA doesn’t. In fact, its design and interface strikes a deliberate balance between providing advanced foundations for expert security practitioners, and straightforward methods for those that aspire to be. Indeed, the SECTARA team is reflects some of the industry’s leading and pragmatic security talent.

The Risk Assessment Software Problem

This effect is often what we consider to be developers trying to make platforms so comprehensive that they become cumbersome and lack intuitiveness. In compounding this issue, many also require regular use to maintain the knowledge and competency necessary to use them effectively.

While those more advanced security practitioners may derive great benefit from such systems, the broader audience tends to be the bulk of the market. This means that, unless moderately competent users are specifically trained in such systems over time, users at the top end are likely to be the ones that get the most from them.
