Basically IT Security covers a gamut of areas, i am just listing some , on the fly

* Antivirus Solutions
* Intrusion Prevention
* Intrusion Detection
* Patch Management
* Firewall
* VPN Gateway
* Vulnerability Assessment & Reporting
* Identity Access Management (single-sign-on, SOX/HIPAA/GLB compliance....)
* Network Security
* Security Policy Compliance Management
* AntiSpam (mail protection software)
* Web Content Filtering

I'm not sure whether we have one-size-fits-all solution which can help us in measuring your enterprise IT Security 

I can list some good tools i have come across personally like NMap, ScanFi, Nessus, IdentityAccess Manager,GFI ....but 
the list is endless, so give them a try in google :-)

Google Risk reporting and you will get whole list of research links.
It would also be helpful to look at owasp www.owasp.org

You should check out NSA IAM/IEM Methodology...it works well for me.

Dear all,

Currently I’m looking for a tool, or a technique to measure IT security?

The baseline for security is CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity and 
Availability), that is every organization which want to called 
secure must be guarantee that their system comply this matter.

But the problem is, we need a tool/technique to measure how 
secure are we. Therefore, wee need a tool/technique to measure 
how close that our system status now to CIA.

Please share your experience about this matter.

If there any link about this issue, I really appreciate if you 
share to us (You may contact me privately) .
