Brinqa GRC Platform 3.0 Simplifies Governance, Risk, And Compliance

Brinqa GRC Platform 3.0 provides capabilities for policy and compliance management

AUSTIN, TX – October 28, 2010 – Brinqa (www.brinqa.com), a leading independent software vendor in the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) market, today announced Brinqa GRC Platform 3.0, the newest version of its flagship product. Designed for large commercial and government organizations, Brinqa GRC Platform 3.0 provides capabilities for policy and compliance management, process governance, incident management, and threat and vulnerability management. In contrast to the traditionally manual, inefficient and costly processes that characterize risk and compliance, Brinqa establishes a centralized, integrated and reusable platform for GRC programs, enabling customers to improve risk posture, minimize compliance costs, and address current risk issues while enabling automation for future GRC initiatives.

Brinqa GRC Platform 3.0 manages the complete lifecycle of policies, processes, and controls from a centralized repository within the enterprise. This ensures consistent mapping to regulations, industry mandates, frameworks, standards and best practices, as well as efficient communication, audit, and enforcement of policies. Further simplifying GRC initiatives, Brinqa intelligently maps business policies to the processes and controls that implement those policies. Low level measurements are gathered in near real-time with Brinqa’s agent-less connectors, and are translated into relevant business terms that can be used by executive management in making strategic business decisions. Brinqa GRC Platform manages policy approval processes, revisions, audit history, and global updates.

Key new features of the Brinqa 3.0 GRC Platform include:

Event-based assessments, with multi-point distribution to support multiple respondents

Hierarchical policies with the ability to overwrite parent policy sections. Policy review in natural language.

Cloud security and data protection standards, controls and compliance reports

Updated regulations, industry mandates, frameworks, standards

Simplified administration of access controls through pre-configured access roles that limit access to what the user needs to do their job

“Enterprises must address their GRC requirements as a whole versus implementing disparate products that still mandate manual processes,” said Amad Fida, President, Brinqa. “Current GRC processes are not only time-consuming and error-prone, but they must also be repeated from scratch every time an update is required. Brinqa 3.0 establishes the re-usable services that underlie all GRC programs, which increases data and control quality while reducing costs. With Brinqa, customers can design the infrastructure once and know they are leveraging existing technology investments through supported integrations. Most importantly, any future business requirements for managing risk, privacy and business continuity will be supported since we enable re-usability across GRC programs.”

Brinqa GRC Platform is a Java-based application which runs in all standard java web containers on most major platforms. The high performance back-end repository leverages an RDBMS server for storing policies, processes, controls, assessments, incidents, and a complete audit trail of all GRC-related activities.
