The Xacta suite of enterprise cyber risk management and compliance automation solutions helps meet the complex challenges of managing IT risk with continuous compliance monitoring, security and risk assessment, and ongoing authorization. The following Xacta solutions are now available in the CDM APL:

Xacta 360 – streamlines security compliance processes and empowers a 360-degree view of the threat landscape while enabling security professionals to effectively manage risk on a day-to-day basis through continuous assessment and ongoing authorization of on-premises and cloud computing environments.
