IRM systems offer a closed-looped remediation solution via their own ticketing and exception processes as well as through bi-directional integrations with ticketing and patch management solutions. In addition, an IRM system's workflow engine enables organizations to collaborate across departments and business units, increasing operational efficiency and shortening the time-to-remediation.
IRM systems can deliver tremendous time and costs savings through increased accuracy, shorter remediation cycles and better overall operational efficiency. Ultimately, they can protect against and minimize the consequences of cyber-attacks and improve the odds for the good guys in the cyber war.
