MetricStream Awarded 2017 “Industry Innovator of the Year” by SC Magazine

MetricStream has been awarded 2017 “Industry Innovator of the Year” by SC Magazine for its innovative, next-gen M7 Platform and Apps

December 27, 2017 | Palo Alto, CA: MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) apps and solutions, has been awarded the 2017 “Industry Innovator of the Year” by SC Magazine in the category of Risk and Policy Management for the second year in a row.

SC Magazine is the definitive guide for IT and Security professionals, and publishes in-depth features and independent business and product reviews. The annual SC Magazine Industry Innovators special feature, published December 22, 2017, has recognized industry-leading companies. MetricStream is the sole GRC company included in the 2017 Industry Innovator Issue. The review, conducted by SC Magazine Technology Editor, Dr. Peter Stephenson, recognizes MetricStream as one of the most forward-looking and flexible innovators evaluated by SC Magazine.

According to the review, “This innovator is quite unusual because although it is a rather large organization and a current market leader, it still behaves like a small startup in that it keeps innovating, can turn on a dime to address emerging issues and have made a mantra out of staying very close to its base of customers and prospective customers.”

Additionally, the review celebrates MetricStream for its M7 Platform and Apps – “A modular GRC system that can move readily into the next generation” as well as MetricStream’s modern cloud. The review states: “It is a multi-instance (rather than multi-tenant) architecture. This architecture allows elastic provisioning, gives a global presence, and is faster and less expensive plus it offers improved security. It also allows hyper-convergence for fast start as well as rapid change management. That makes it one of the first to use next gen analytics in a pure GRC tool which allows easy capture from third party sources (e.g., threat data).”

With M7, MetricStream is the first to bring to market innovative 4th generation GRC technology. The M7 platform and apps are designed to help companies preserve their corporate integrity, protect their brand, and drive exceptional business performance through GRC that is simple, pervasive, and delivered in the cloud. M7 focuses on enabling high performers through an engaging user experience, high degree of configurability, enhanced mobility and layering, sophisticated reporting and analytics, and a future-ready architecture.

MetricStream continues on its growth path as the leading independent GRC company in the world, and continues to inspire confidence from the market and investment community. With its latest financing round, along with the successful launch of M7, MetricStream is truly bringing GRC into the future.
