London, England (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
Harmony for ISO 27001. Trading partner, QSA and the main acquiring bank gave Harmony top marks for the ease and efficiency with which essential compliance information is shared and maintained.
Harmony, the No.1 system for managing compliance projects, has won plaudits from QSAs for the latest system innovations which make managing compliance to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standard even more cost effective.
Richard Hollis, CEO of Orthus, a PCI QSA, says, "Harmony is easily the most effective tool available for PCI compliance. It has saved us time and improved the quality of our service to our customers. Our customers love it because they get the control, transparency, reporting and ease of management they need, and the acquiring banks love it too since they get a outstanding risk mitigation. Harmony is a complete solution."
Harmony enables companies to move through 'Year 1' compliance to a mature continuous compliance state.
Harmony allows companies to dramatically reduce the ongoing costs of compliance and achieve measurable business results quickly. With the launch of Decisive's new Continuous Compliance Solution(CCS) the first in an extended line of solutions developed by Decisive is now available for both UK and global firms.
"In an intensely competitive global marketplace, companies cannot delay when cutting the business costs in today's intense regulatory environment," said Tony Chapman, Decisive's Senior Director. "This solution enables firms to accelerate a mature compliance environment by eliminating redundant work, reducing repetitive tasks by automating, decreasing the time spent on analysis and record collection and retention and significantly improving levels of reporting and transparency."

In all, these enhancements allow our customers to improve productivity even more and have the potential to produce further cost savings.
All enhancements are available to current customers with immediate effect.
