Rudder Score: get a comprehensive and holistic visibility on the state of your systems

In this release, we introduce an innovative feature: the Rudder Score that provides you with a more comprehensive and global visibility on the health of your systems.

While Rudder has always been developed with the idea of compliance by design and offers users great visibility into their infrastructure health through various compliance views, this new feature takes it to the next level.

The Rudder score provides a comprehensive overview of a system’s status by aggregating various components:

  • compliance view of the system regarding its configurations,
  • vulnerabilities impacting the system,
  • updates impacting the system.

The global score reflects how well-aligned the system is with security and configuration policies, offering a 360° view for assessing the security posture of your infrastructure without having to dig into specific configurations or logs. In this way, you can easily and quickly identify systems posing security risks and prioritize remediation efforts efficiently.

Group-level view of compliance: take an in-depth look at the health of your infrastructure

After adding compliance rate at each configuration level, we are now introducing compliance for groups of systems. This feature enables you to delve into detailed compliance assessments at the group level, providing deeper insights into your infrastructure’s adherence to configuration and security policies.

Compliance degrees at each level offer the flexibility to analyze compliance across all components of your infrastructure. Additionally, it offers in-depth customization according to specific needs and preferences.

In today’s ever-changing cyberthreat landscape, strengthening security is crucial for protecting company data and mitigating security vulnerabilities. These new Rudder features provide you with the control you need to efficiently address risks and handle necessary remediations.
