SAN JOSE, Calif., April 6, 2021 – MetricStream, the market leader in governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and integrated risk management products and solutions, today unveiled its Arno software release, which includes numerous features and innovations added to its platform and products.

In addition to enhancing the MetricStream Platform, a slew of new capabilities have been added to Enterprise and Operational Risk Management, IT and Cyber Risk Management, Internal Audit Management, Policy and Compliance Management, and Third-Party Risk Management products. Today’s launch sets a new standard for governance, risk and compliance as well as integrated risk management, further enabling organizations to leverage risk as a strategic advantage.

The MetricStream Arno release provides exceptional visibility with aggregated risk metrics to help organizations analyze and prevent adverse risk incidents, and minimize compliance violations, while gaining confidence of regulators. The Arno release helps quantify IT and cyber risk exposure in monetary terms to prioritize investments required to mitigate cyber risks, prevent third-party risk incidents, and ensure operational resilience.

“As digitalization of business processes accelerates, organizations are facing unprecedented velocity and volumes of risk, which challenge traditionally siloed risk management approaches,” said Andreas Diggelmann, Chief Technology Officer at MetricStream. “By integrating disparate risk-related functions with one platform, businesses gain efficiencies, resulting in lowered costs, greater agility and improved intelligence for making better risk-based strategic decisions to accelerate growth.”
