COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — root9B, a root9B Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:  RTNB) company and leading provider of advanced cybersecurity products and services, today announced the May 15th, 2017 release of ORKOS version 2.0. ORKOS is a unique solution that visualizes, scores, and provides recommendations for the credential and adversary lateral movement risks within network breaches.

Stolen credentials and lateral movement are key tactics utilized by the adversary and represent critical risks to corporate and government networks. ORKOS 2.0 includes new credential risk mitigation support for both Linux and the latest versions of Windows, as well as weak password detection and significant user interface improvements. This release adds new interface features to analyze and understand adversary lateral movement risks across multiple operating environments. It also delivers comprehensive reports useful to auditors and ranks and reports those risks to offer remediation strategies for IT teams. Version 2.0 expands ORKOS’ ability to analyze data across more diverse operating environments, while generating an interactive map and virtual dynamic remediation environment.

“ORKOS 2.0 continues to provide our customers with the only capability in the market that assesses a credential risk, identifies how attackers move within a network and recommends mitigation,” says Eric Stride, root9B’s Senior Vice President of Emerging Technologies. “Security teams and network auditors that are not assessing these risks are ignoring the biggest attack vector used today.”
