TruComply's PCI offerings and expertise are a perfect complement to TruArx's IT GRC knowledge
Farmington Hills, Mich. (PRWEB) October 28, 2008 - TruArx, Inc., a metro Detroit-
based IT governance, risk and compliance (IT GRC) solution and service company, today announced its merger with Austin, Texas-based TruComply, a leading provider of payment card industry (PCI) compliance management and e-learning solutions. The two companies have consolidated their software-as-a-service (SaaS) compliance products under the name TruComply.
TruArx is best known for helping companies optimize business performance with economical and quick-to-implement IT GRC solutions like its flagship offering TruView. Now known as TruComply, the solution has enhanced capabilities to help companies better manage risk and adhere to industry standards and government regulations according to TruArx President Robert Capinjola.
TruComply, a cost-effective, risk-based decision-making tool, helps companies focus limited compliance budgets on priority areas of the business. Customers don't have to purchase expensive software or hardware, maintain data, or spend months implementing technology to use TruComply, which significantly lowers overall investments. The web-based solution can quickly identify risks that effect critical assets that support essential business processes. TruComply's database contains an exhaustive inventory of standards, frameworks, regulations, recommendations and risk profiles. Once implemented, TruComply dynamically constructs a high quality, cost-effective strategy for improving information security and complying with industry regulations like Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), HIPAA, PCI DSS, ISO standards and more. Key information like compliance standards, controls and threat profiles are maintained as part of the SaaS model.
TruComply's easy-to-understand recommendations help executives and compliance professionals quickly determine the most cost-effective way to reduce risk. The service automatically maps controls and policies to governance and industry standards to further identify the criticality of gaps in policy coverage for company procedures and IT resources.
"Considering recent financial events, businesses can expect the complexity and cost of compliance to grow because of current risk management deficiencies," says Robert Capinjola. "TruComply is affordable and makes it easy to develop a compliance program because of its software-as-a-service delivery model." Capinjola believes TruComply addresses a wide range of requirements while offering a broader on-demand solution that strengthens compliance and lowers costs. "By adding the TruComply suite of offerings, clients can continuously review security and compliance and easily decide where to best apply limited budgets to mitigate risk."
TruComply President and CEO Chris Noell joins TruArx as executive vice president of product management. "TruComply's PCI offerings and expertise are a perfect complement to TruArx's IT GRC knowledge," says Noell. "Joining forces with TruArx enhances our capability to provide customers with a broader array of capabilities including task and workflow management, compliance e-learning content, and policy management so IT teams can handle security compliance and risk with one integrated system." Noell adds customers will benefit with greater levels of support, lower maintenance costs and more frequent application and information upgrades.
