Allgress Enabling Efficient IT 3rd Party, Compliance and Risk Management

Jeff Kushner, Chief Marketing Officer
“A combination of increasing volume of regulations, more stringent third-party requirements for managing the risk and compliance process has left companies in a challenging position. Today’s manual methods of managing the GRC process with spreadsheets or home grown solutions lead to lack of accurate information to make business decisions in a timely manner to manage an organizations risk posture. Automating the entire risk management process is imperative to cost effective, timely and responsive GRC management,” says Jeff Kushner, Chief Marketing Officer, Allgress. The company is committed to provide organizations with the ability to make effective investment decisions that align security and compliance programs with top business priorities in a timely manner. The company provides a comprehensive GRC platform focused on IT risk management solutions.

The Allgress Insight Risk Management provides comprehensive risk management based on information collected from existing solutions in place, assessments and incidents so organizations can adhere to best practices, government regulations and third-party requirements. Information is then analyzed and presented in visual and intuitive heat maps and reports that use graphics to translate security, regulatory compliance, and risk reports into the language of business. This provides business and technical stakeholders with metrics to actively manage and report with a comprehensive view of their department or organization-wide compliance, security and risk posture.

The solution suite is architected for flexible implementation with individual modules or as a complete suite that can be delivered as a hosted or on premise solution. All the modules are tightly integrated with policy management, workflow, reporting tools, visual graphics, and wheel charts that provides organizations with detailed reports on their current posture to quickly access where an organization may be vulnerable. This approach enables the entire process from start to finish with accurate actionable results that is repeatable in days as opposed to months or years. The modules also collect and tie the evidence which is the key to prove an organization’s diligence to auditors and regulators. The suite provides a consistent way to collect and access relevant data, analyze it for adherence to best practices, industry standards, and mandates and deliver reports in the language of the target stakeholder.
