Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
TruOps GRC Hub (http://www.truops.com), the leading Governance Risk and Compliance platform from SDG Corporation is pleased to announce that their Policy, Compliance and Risk modules are now backed by the power of the Unified Compliance Framework.
TruOps supports centralized definition and management of GRC policy & related IT controls, assessment & response to IT risks, measurement & compliance reporting for regulatory requirements and recognizing & responding to incidents and threats. By delivering the UCF content integrated with its solution, SDG will further enhance the ROI customers derive from TruOps GRC Hub: the UCF integration will provide a unified, clear path on global IT regulatory requirements and how to meet them.
“With the Integration of UCF content into TruOps GRC Hub, clients will be able to reduce the cost associated with managing the overwhelming complexity of IT compliance by standardizing on a common set of controls that map to all the regulations and policy mandates they need to comply with. In addition, the controls from UCF when mapped to the TruOps’ Risk catalogue will provide customers with an even stronger Risk Management framework,” said Naresh Podila, Vice President Products and Platforms for TruOps.
“By leveraging the UCF, TruOps can build composite compliance assessment questionnaires that work across multiple control sets with no redundancy, enabling a ‘test-once, comply-to-many’ standard”, said Craig Isaacs, CEO of Network Frontiers. “It's a great way to leverage the UCF to provide outstanding return on investment for customers.”
The TruOps GRC Hub offers superior performance and insights to customers. With TruOps’ workflow-driven Policy and Compliance solution, customers no longer will have to rely on collating disparate documents and accept the resultant lapses in compliance, service levels and security. TruOps’ comprehensive Risk Management combines Qualitative and Quantitative risk analysis and supports the end-to-end process from risk scoring to mitigation and reporting. TruOps Security Management provides a unified Information platform that collates and correlates data from “siloed” reactive security solutions, turning information into insights.
The UCF harmonizes IT controls from over 400 international regulatory requirements, standards, and guidelines into a single hierarchal framework. This enables organizations to easily define commonalities among multiple regulatory bodies, leverage the policies, processes, and tools already in place, and establish a single, streamlined cost-effective plan to achieve continuous compliance across the enterprise. Within the TruOps GRC Hub, these controls integrate seamlessly to provide a unified view of global regulatory requirements that supports consolidation and streamlining of compliance processes. This integrated approach allows enterprises to substantially cut the costs associated with GRC efforts, while simultaneously providing broader coverage and visibility into potential gaps in regulatory compliance.
The UCF includes controls from a wide variety of regulations and guidelines, including: Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Basel II, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, PCI-DSS Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, NASD Manual, HIPAA, FERC Security Program, Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), FIPS 191, GAO Financial Audit Manual, IRS Revenue Procedure and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
