ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Todays’ complex and changing cyber threat, regulatory and competitive landscape demands that organizations consider an integrated risk management program that bridges bottom-up IT security data and critical asset data with top-down business processes for improved risk intelligence and decision making. In recognition of this growing market, Modulo, a leading provider of IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that the company is named an Industry Innovator for 2012 by SC Magazine. This honor is assigned to only a handful of standout IT security products out of hundreds evaluated every year by the rigorous SC Labs.
“This milestone validates the global momentum we are experiencing at Modulo and shows our dedication to innovation that helps our clients in the private sector, critical infrastructure and government.”
According to Peter Stephenson, SC Magazine's technology editor, ”Modulo has addressed the challenge of compliance and real risk management by developing a platform that works on the premise of command and control. The Modulo Risk Manager links the organization's assets and infrastructure directly to governance, risk and compliance (GRC) requirements and, using the most comprehensive knowledge base in the industry – 21,454 individual controls addressing technology, people and processes, views the entire organization from a risk management perspective.”
“To be named as one of the innovators of the year by the highly respected SC Magazine team is a great honor for Modulo and shows how governance, risk and compliance software is evolving to meet new market challenges,” said Sergio Thompson-Flores, CEO for Modulo. “This milestone validates the global momentum we are experiencing at Modulo and shows our dedication to innovation that helps our clients in the private sector, critical infrastructure and government.”
SC Magazine notes the several Modulo Risk Manager capabilities as key to its innovation:
- Collects and harmonizes threat, vulnerability, operational, vendor and business risks – IT, operational and physical data – and matches this to business processes
- Modulo MetaFramework as the base from which to deploy the appropriate modules for the organization
- Rich set of third-party integration possibilities that covers just about any business or IT configuration imaginable
Ultimately, concludes SC Magazine, “Modulo Risk Manager becomes a central control point for addressing, managing and mitigating risk holistically throughout the organization.”
