SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Agiliance, the leading provider of IT governance, risk, and compliance (IT-GRC) solutions, today announced the general availability of Agiliance IT-GRC 3.0. By expanding integrated IT risk assessment and management capabilities, and adding enhanced automation and additional integration with third party systems to its flagship product, Agiliance has broken new ground: IT-GRC 3.0 enables organizations to proactively account for changes in their risk profile as their underlying IT infrastructure, processes, applications, and users change. Agiliance IT-GRC was built to eliminate the risk and compliance information silos that result in operational inefficiencies and inadequate risk measurement. Version 3.0 links IT risk to overall enterprise risk and delivers the process and policy automation required for real-time risk and compliance management. With these enhancements, Agiliance has delivered an industry first: a fully automated IT-GRC solution capable of managing the entire IT risk and compliance lifecycle.
In separate releases issued today, Agiliance announced that the company has recruited a board of advisors, and that media giant Tech Target honored Agiliance as a rising star at its Information Security Decisions conference, held in Chicago on November 5 and 6.
Because we are a pure-play e-commerce-based business in a heavily regulated industry, our IT infrastructure must be secure and able to support millions of transactions at all times, said Oliver Eckel, head of corporate security, Bwin Interactive Entertainment AG. What makes Agiliance so useful to us is that it gives us centralized access, management and control of both manual and automatic controls. That single process improvement, in and of itself, provides us with a much more efficient, productive management capability. Moving forward, we intend to leverage Agiliance to be our security management cockpit and expect to realize substantial operational and strategic advantages by doing so.
According to Gartner, Whatever the level of risk sophistication of the greater organization, when choosing controls, IT planners should make cost-benefit decisions based on realistic assessments of risk
IT application specialists should familiarize themselves with the different forms of risk management technology so they can actively seek opportunities to support the automation of risk management tasks throughout the organization.1
