Cybersecurity Return on Investment

Up until today, there has been no real way to measure the Return on Cyber Investment (ROCI) as it relates to your cybersecurity portfolio. SightGain is the first platform to evaluate the performance of your security controls and assesses that performance against the overall cost. We enable organizations to understand which investments are reducing risks and how to optimize their security portfolio to divest from legacy solutions that are no longer performing.

Here’s how the ROI calculator works

Real-Time Metrics

SightGain measures and analyzes security operations — including security personnel, processes, and technologies — by safely testing your controls against the threats you face every day.

How we Calculate your ROI

Real Money Results

By calculating the actual risk reduction each control ( e.g. Firewall, EDR, DLP, etc.) adds to the overall protection profile and factoring in the ongoing cost of each solution, we can easily determine the real ROI each solution brings to your cybersecurity program. SightGain automates the threat testing and the analysis of the results to give you real insights into each investment within your cybersecurity portfolio.

Make “cents” of your security investments

SightGain measures and quantifies all operational aspects of a SOC for effectiveness — including security people, processes, and technologies — by coordinating and tracking live-tests for new attack scenarios based on an organization’s latest threat intelligence.
