SureCloud Launches Unified Compliance Platform
April 2012 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
SureCloud announced the SureCloud Unified Compliance Platform, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution aimed at mid-market organisations, which 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.
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.
