ROI and Total Cost of Ownership for the Lightspin Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP)

Choosing the right tools that efficiently reduce risk is a top priority for many organizations. The Lightspin platform provides various benefits:

  • Short time to value via out of the box contextualized cloud risk prioritization,
  • Improved team efficiency by doing away with meaningless alerts,
  • Streamlined time to fix with dynamic remediation for DevOps via ready-made Infrastructure as Code (IaC), and
  • Cost savings with tool consolidation (the average customer consolidates 2 – 4 tools with a Lightspin implementation).

Many customers buy us for these reasons alone. But the #1 benefit of an investment in the Lightspin platform is a reduction of cybersecurity risk. Decreasing the likelihood of a breach and eliminating the debilitating effects of malware are two big risk categories.

 Practical Quantitative Methods for Cybersecurity Risk Modeling

In their book, How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk Douglas Hubbard and Richard Seiersen lay out the basic principles of their approach to apply quantitative measurements to reduction of cybersecurity risk. Their system moves beyond a grid-based “risk matrix” (a.k.a. heat map or risk map) to focus on quantitative, probabilistic methods which are proven to be effective.

The ROI for each organization could vary and may be at the high or low end of this range based upon the average cost of a breach for your industry and other variables.
