TraceSecurity Ranks High in Cybersecurity 500 and Covered in Q2 Market Report

BATON ROUGE, La., April 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TraceSecurity, a leader in cloud-based IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) management solutions, today announced the company has been named #73 in the Cybersecurity 500, a directory of the 500 hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies to watch this year and has also been covered in the Cybersecurity Ventures Q2 Market Report for TraceCSO's ability to cure one of the market's greatest security challenges of 2015.

"TraceSecurity is a red-hot player in the security management market and IT GRC space, and a company to take a close look at," says Steve Morgan, founder and CEO at Cybersecurity Ventures and publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the Cybersecurity 500. "Their cloud-based TraceCSO app automates infosecurity management and compliance, with the potential to reduce the need for internal security specialists – which can lead to dramatic GRC savings and be a stop-gap for the cybersecurity skills shortage that organizations are faced with today," adds Morgan.

TraceSecurity's cloud-based platform, TraceCSO, balances the technical complexity of information security and compliance management with end-user ease of use. Delivering all eight of the major IT security activities needed to defend against today's cyber-attacks, TraceCSO builds-in information security expertise, best practice workflow, end-to-end integration and a global database of compliance requirements. This unique combination is what allows organizations to implement and manage their on-going information security program without requiring additional IT resources or in-house security expertise.

"Recent breaches, such as the Sony and Home Depot attacks, are forcing organizations to better prepare and defend against cyber-attacks and many times this means supplemental security expertise. The market is begging for technology that delivers a stop-gap, and TraceCSO is the only solution that was built for this purpose and is ready to fulfill the demand," said Peter Stewart, TraceSecurity president and CEO. "With more than a decade of information security expertise built into TraceCSO, organizations can feel confident in their day-to-day decision-making. Organizations of any size, industry or security skill set can now have a risk-based information security program with enterprise-class capabilities."
