Comprehensive Software Reviews to make better IT decisions
Archimigo Aims to Simplify Security Architecture, Risk, and Compliance
Archimigo offers a simplified solution for managing security architecture, risk, and compliance functions under one platform. At the Collision Conference in Toronto, ON in May 2019, Archimigo hosted a booth to showcase its product.
Headquartered in Australia, the SaaS-based application leverages deep learning to assist security teams in automating the generation of architecture and identification of risks based on the analysis of vast volumes of security data patterns. While these processes are traditionally manual, the platform aims to alleviate security architects, designers, and GRC analysts from these onerous and time-consuming tasks.
The platform touts the ability to efficiently create artifacts using pre-built templates (e.g. vendor assessments, security architecture requirements, security incident playbooks) and offers intuitive collaboration and workflow automation to share security documents with teammates across various departments for simple decision making and approval.
The product provides guidance for security requirements based on industry standards such as NIST, PCI-DSS, ISO 27001 (and HIPAA, FedRAMP, and others by early 2020) to compare against your architecture. Once implemented, it can identify gaps and potential risks that can be exported to a GRC platform.
Depending too heavily on automation for any important task can inevitably lead to incorrect assumptions and other errors, so it is crucial to ensure that skilled architects and analysts are reviewing and providing critical feedback on the platform’s outputs. Pre-built templates are available, but again, each organization may have unique attributes that may not necessarily be initially captured by the deep learning model, so critically assessing and reviewing all artifacts is imperative.
Archimigo is new to the market and seems to be tackling a wide range of security issues – from architecture to risk, incident response, and more. As the product develops out from the proof-of-concept phase, it will be interesting to see how Archimigo progresses in each area. Whether it will excel at it all or find a sweet-spot of focus will be a matter of time. Archimigo offers free trails and proof-of-concept uses to test the functionality and usability.

Last month Amazon released SageMaker Studio, an IDE for machine learning (ML). The objective for this new-ish offering was to address “immature tooling” in ML and make it easier for data scientists to create and deploy ML models.
So, you know about AI biases but want to see a demonstration of what’s involved in identifying and removing them from a machine learning/AI application? A recent webinar by DataRobot does just that: it walks you through a small ML project and explains step by step what to do and how.
Doctors at the Moorfields Eye Hospital in London have built a data set that links patient retinal scans with nationally held data about people with Alzheimer’s. They plan to use it to see if they can detect the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease from retinal changes using machine learning.
DataRobot, a vendor of enterprise AI, recently released a report revealing that nearly half (42%) of AI professionals in the US and the UK are “very” or “extremely” concerned about AI bias.
Wrike’s Approach to Avoiding Employee Burnout Requires a Collaborative, Top-Down Approach to Portfolio Planning
Wrike’s Laura Quiambao recently blogged about the dangers of employee burnout and highlighted how Wrike Resource can help. It’s tough to argue with her four proposed solutions, but a fifth component is absent from her analysis: engaged, responsible portfolio ownership.
A newly announced collaboration between CipherCloud and Thales promises to enable zero trust access control for data in the cloud. This may be a compelling value proposition for companies looking for a CASB with integrated zero trust identity management.
Aha! has improved its integration with Azure DevOps to improve release and sprint visibility for both developers and stakeholders.
IoT manufacturers aren’t just waiting for 5G connectivity to deliver significant smart city solutions. From a smart city conference in Dublin, we showcase three examples of how IoT is improving urban environments today.
The AI system developed by Google Health more accurately identifies breast cancer than human experts, reports The Guardian (and others). The system has been tested in the UK and the US, and the results are published in Nature, one of the most prestigious scientific journals in the world.
