  • Best Deployment and Case Studies (USA): TraceSecurity Increases IT GRC Effectiveness While Significantly Lowering Operational Costs

"As the barrage of cybersecurity breaches continues, more companies and their executive management have become aware of the need to manage risk proactively and within context of their holistic information security program," says Peter Stewart, TraceSecurity president and CEO. "To help organizations prevent cyber-attacks, TraceCSO delivers best-practice risk assessment and mitigation capabilities that seamlessly integrate with seven other essential IT GRC functions from vulnerability, policy and vendor management to incident response, training, audit, and compliance management. Our recognition and success among managed security providers (MSPs) has been remarkable; they quickly see TraceCSO's value to leverage the platform as their internal business development and discovery tool for risk assessment and on-going remediation planning. It allows them to win new business and generate revenue through additional security services and end-point solutions."
