SureCloud Launches Unified Compliance Platform

SaaS solution helps midmarket organizations automate and simplify security and compliance processes

London, UK – April 24, 2012 - SureCloud, a supplier of IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the SureCloud Unified Compliance Platform, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution aimed at mid-market organisations, which uniquely combines security point solutions to assess and monitor networks, applications and airwaves, with Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) process automation. The SureCloud platform is a hybrid of solutions from GRC vendors on the one hand, and point solutions from information security vendors on the other, delivering real-time actionable intelligence.

“SureCloud’s customers have a number of things in common. They have limited resources and budgets, and view the enterprise point solutions as too expensive and overly complex for their compliance needs,” said Richard Hibbert, CEO of SureCloud. “The Unified Compliance Platform simplifies the process by enabling IT and compliance teams to manage the complexity of compliance initiatives with one central solution, through one user-interface, using one central mechanism to manage activity and report on progress.”

The Unified Compliance Platform has three major functional areas, namely:

· Assessment and Monitoring with SIEM, vulnerability scanning, and network and wireless IDS capabilities (together or individually as required)

· GRC Process Automation covering areas such as vulnerability remediation, incident response, compliance auditing, user awareness training and vendor management

· Actionable Intelligence delivered through Alerts, Reports and Actions.

Each functional area has the core features required to meet compliance needs without the excess functionality found in enterprise point solutions.

“Ultimately, the Unified Compliance Platform allows organisations to cover far more territory than with the traditional approach of individual point solutions, and at a fraction of the cost,” concluded Richard Hibbert.
