Product Spotlight: IT GRC, security tools for the business

Our latest roundup of IT compliance products features two IT GRC management tools that help businesses evaluate their assets' and programs' security.

TraceCSO, your cloud security officer

TraceSecurity Inc. has announced the release of TraceCSO, a cloud governance, risk and compliance (GRC) information security program for companies of any size, industry or security skill level. TraceCSO allows companies to evaluate, create, implement and manage a comprehensive information security program across all areas of their organization, including areas that are top security concerns, such as cloud computing and bring your own device, or BYOD, initiatives.

This seamless security product gives IT departments comprehensive visibility into and accountability for their company's risk and compliance profile, and makes it easier for them to manage a secure environment that protects confidential information and meets regulatory requirements.

TraceCSO also:

  • Identifies and prioritizes risks to an organization's information -- including network vulnerabilities -- and identifies, implements and audits security controls.
  • Guides users through the process of implementing and managing a holistic, risk-based information security program that reduces redundant security controls and security gaps caused by disparate systems, and automates tasks to increase productivity.
  • Leverages a global database of hundreds of authorities and more than 25,000 regulations and citations to help organizations stay current with the latest regulatory mandates specific to their industry.
  • Identifies asset threats and controls to mitigate risk, and assigns TraceSecurity's proprietary Risk Score, which lets an organization measure and report on mitigation effectiveness, set benchmarks and analyze risk.
