London, England (PRWEB UK) 7 February 2014

Specialist ISO 27001 information security risk assessment company Vigilant Software (http://www.vigilantsoftware.co.uk/) is launching the multi-user version of its industry-leading vsRisk™ tool, enabling an even quicker and easier assessment and reporting experience.

vsRisk™ Multi-user can be used by up to 10 risk assessors simultaneously - with the option to purchase additional user access in groups of five - and accelerates the time it takes to produce an audit-ready report by over 70%.

Fully compliant with the universally-accepted standard for information security, ISO/IEC 27001, the tool helps businesses properly identify information security risks and put in place effective controls to reduce them.

Vigilant Software offers regular live online demonstrations of vsRisk™ 2 Standalone and Multi-user versions, through which customers and the media can have the product explained to them in detail. A free 14-day trial can be downloaded from the Vigilant Software website at http://www.vigilantsoftware.co.uk/download/vsrisk-vigilant.htm.

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of Vigilant Software, says: “vsRisk™ Multi-user automates and delivers an ISO-compliant asset-based risk assessment through a few simple and easy steps and is compatible for use by multiple asset-owners enterprise wide. It simplifies and accelerates the risk assessment process and eliminates the opportunity for human and spread sheet error, improving consistency over time, strengthening the robustness of risk management decisions and ensuring key assets receive appropriate protection.”

vsRisk™ 2 builds on the success of its predecessors and, via three different pre-populated controls, dramatically reduces the costs and overheads of pursuing compliance with information security management standards ISO/IEC 27001:2005, ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISO/IEC 27032.

vsRisk Multi-user allows for uniformity and consistency in conducting and reporting on risk assessments organisation-wide. This enables the lead risk assessor to outsource the risk assessment task to other managers, thus ensuring that a consistent risk assessment process has been followed throughout. The reports that are produced are representative of the entire organisation’s risk assessments and are exportable in a professional, audit-ready format.

This effective and coordinated approach brings a wealth of business benefits, including improved competitiveness, secure confidential information and enhanced customer satisfaction. Other benefits include the acceleration of the risk assessment process, the production of key ISO/IEC 27001 documentation and, last but by no means least, assistance with updating and maintaining existing risk assessments to ensure continuing compliance at annual audits.” A full ROI analysis is available at http://www.vigilantsoftware.co.uk/ROI-on-vsRisk.aspx.

The only tool in its price range to integrate out-of-the-box to an ISO 27001 management system, vsRisk™ also allows users to carry out an automated, robust and extensive cyber security risk assessment of their organisation’s assets, compliant with ISO 27001. In addition, vsRisk™ includes an integrated, searchable ISO/ IEC 27005-compliant threat and vulnerability database.

Aimed at IT managers, risk managers, assessment officers, information security consultants, chief technology officers, chief information officers, auditors, certification body assessors, information security officers, IT compliance analysts, systems engineers and, indeed, any parties responsible for information security risk management, its many benefits include assessing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

Calder adds: “Significant changes to the risk environment can be incorporated into the risk assessment quickly and easily through the multi-user version of vsRisk™ 2. vsRisk™ 2 can also be operated in a standalone capacity by a lead risk assessor or deployed to multiple risk assessors in a large organisation, ensuring the risk assessment is consistent and repeatable.”
