NEW YORK, NY (April 19, 2017) — Bay Dynamics® is partnering with professional services provider Grant Thornton LLP – the U.S. member firm of Grant Thornton International Ltd – to help companies make simpler, more cost-effective cyber security decisions.
This partnership provides Grant Thornton’s clients with access to the Bay Dynamics Risk Fabric® analytics platform – giving them a software advantage, while also allowing them to benefit from Grant Thornton’s risk-based guidance on cyber security.
“We were attracted to this partnership because the Bay Dynamics platform remedies a pernicious problem: Companies seem to have bought two of everything when it comes to cyber security – creating an array of multiple tools that cloud visibility into the most significant cyber risks,” says Jeff Recor, principal in Grant Thornton’s Cyber Risk Advisory Services practice. “The Risk Fabric platform solves this problem by bringing together a company’s existing security tools, adding powerful new analytics, and delivering prioritized actions to the professionals responsible for reducing cyber risk.”
Recor goes on to explain that Grant Thornton, for its part, “boasts a long history using a cyber-risk framework to help organizations create and transform value.” The firm, which has revenues in excess of $1.6 billion and almost 60 offices across the nation, provides advisory, audit and tax services to a broad range of private and publicly held companies, in addition to government agencies and civic organizations.
“At a time when companies are holding their security executives’ feet to the fire – demanding more effective cyber-threat management – they need a combination of cutting-edge tools and the latest risk-management thinking,” says Recor. “That’s where this partnership comes in.”
“Risk Fabric is the only platform that quantifies the financial impact of cyber risk based on detected threats and vulnerabilities in the environment, and prioritizes actions based on those that reduce impact the most,” said Mike Saletta, vice president of Channel Sales at Bay Dynamics. “The platform fits perfectly into Grant Thornton’s cyber risk framework. Now with Risk Fabric, companies can use one risk-focused platform that brings together their countless disjointed tools, making cyber risk management more cost effective and less complicated.”
Bay Dynamics partners with system integrators, resellers, managed security services providers and technology companies worldwide. In 2016, the company’s number of channel partners increased by almost 150 percent and continues to grow.

About Bay Dynamics
