September 06, 2012 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced its participation in the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit that will be held on September 19-20, 2012 in London. During the two-day event MetricStream will be present at booth #S21 and will demonstrate its cutting-edge GRC solutions for IT risk, IT compliance, IT policy and procedure and IT audit management. Said to be one of the most comprehensive security and risk events in Europe,  the summit will bring together Gartner analysts and senior risk and security officers, who will share their perspectives and best practices on managing IT risks and discuss “Strategic Roadmaps to Secure the Enterprise and Manage Risk.”

While a lot of hype has been created around cloud-computing, Big Data and social media and how it can be leveraged to achieve business performance and improve decision-making, there is a range of underlying security threats and risks that organizations, across industries, need to look out for. Added to this list are employee-owned mobile and smart devices, and mobile networks which expose organizations to IT vulnerabilities and data breaches. As regulators closely scrutinize organizations, and introduce more stringent measures, organizations find it a challenge to strike a balance between managing IT risks, adhering to regulatory reforms, and aligning GRC to business objectives and strategy. They are looking at architecting an effective and efficient GRC framework that will protect organizational data and assets against the latest security threats as well as ensure compliance to the multiple global regulations laid down by regulators.

Implemented by some of the world’s largest and most renowned organizations across industries and countries, MetricStream’s IT-GRC Solution is recognized for its flexibility and workflow-driven approach to managing, communicating, and implementing IT policies and procedures across the enterprise. It provides a holistic approach to IT-GRC management and streamlines compliance and audit processes across the enterprise, enabling all aspects of IT-GRC to be controlled from a single point of reference. The centralized risk management framework quickly identifies and reports vulnerabilities affecting business critical assets, maps security issues to business applications, and aggregates risk information across divisions, business units and locations. Powerful tools such as built-in remediation workflows, embedded best practices, training content from experts and automated alerts ensure that IT professionals can manage risk and compliance effectively while deriving the most value from IT.
