Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 09, 2015
Modulo, a leading provider of technology governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced it has been cited by Gartner, Inc. in the 2014 Market Guide for Audit Management Solutions .
"We feel that our mention in this report validates our strategy to offer an integrated GRC solution that delivers the best value on the market. Many Modulo Risk Manager customers leverage our audit capabilities to support their IT, operational and vendor risk and compliance programs with an internal audit trail and KPIs,” said Stephen Gant, managing director, international, for Modulo.
Gartner Senior Research Analyst Khushbu Pratap writes, “When more than one department in the organization is considering investment in GRC applications, it makes economic sense for internal auditors to prioritize evaluation of audit management solutions integrated in GRC applications.”
Gartner defines, “Internal auditors play the critical role of being the third line of defense. When risk owners and management do not identify risk or adequately mitigate the risk, it is imperative for the internal auditors to provide independent and objective insight on risk. The audit management solution market caters to this need by automating internal audit operations through its core and value-added offerings.”
Modulo Risk Manager was originally designed by IT risk auditors for IT risk auditors. Today Modulo offers an audit solution as part of the powerful Modulo Risk Manager GRC software platform. Organizations must comply with industry standards and regulations to operate responsibly and legally. When new and changing regulations burden already resource-constrained teams, audit preparedness can be a challenge. Modulo provides compliance and risk officers with a central platform for streamlining, monitoring, and reporting compliance activities.
- Visibility: Reports and dashboards for executives and key stake-holders
- Preparedness: Out-of-the-box standards and laws for audit readiness
- Accountability: Project management and automation with audit trails
All the features available in the Modulo Risk Manager platform, including out-of-the-box reports and dashboards, automation rules, surveys, and mobile apps, support the audit capabilities.
Modulo was recently recognized in three other Gartner Magic Quadrant reports: Gartner’s Inaugural 2014 Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management (ORM) report published December 15, 2014 , Gartner’s inaugural Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management (VRM) report published October 29, 2014 and Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Planning (BCMP) Software report published August 27, 2014 .
