Washington, DC (PressExposure) August 06, 2011 -- eGestalt Technologies ( http://www.eGestalt.com ) today announced version 11 of its award-winning security and compliance management solution that provides PCI and HIPAA/HITECH-based security and risk assessment, auditing and remediation. The tool offers peace of mind to channel partners servicing SMBs to large enterprises, including medical providers and their business associates, retailers and merchants that must meet PCI and HIPAA/HITECH requirements.
SecureGRC SBv11 will be offered in two versions: Enterprise and Small Business editions. Partners will immediately realize the benefits of using SecureGRC's highly automated, scalable, andcost-effective security and compliance management solution complete with pre-audit and post-audit support, a real-time dashboard that offers multiple assessments, reviews and remediation:in short, a configurable policy-based risk model with real-time status.
SecureGRC SB is targeted at small to medium businesses that are looking for an easy-to-use, cost-effective self-assessment based security and compliance solution. The enterprise version of the solution supports the self-assessment capability from SecureGRC SB but adds a pre-audit and audit capability along with complete customizability suitable for medium to large enterprises that are looking for a robust, next-generation security and compliance management solution.
Built from the ground up to profit the channel, SecureGRC offers ready-to-use, pre-packaged content such as policies which are continuously updated, a trove of best practices, and plenty of assessment questions that make it an easy step-by-step process to run the assessment and reach compliance, yet flexible enough to fully customize accordingly.
Being a cloud-based service, service providers/MSPs can take comfort in knowing that no hardware or software deployment is involved. The solution consolidates all compliance-related evidence into a single and centralized repository. Additionally, all data is stored in a SAS 70 Type II secure data center yet no electronic records are removed from the client site.
Delivered exclusively through the channel, the SecureGRC solution allows service providers and MSPs to profit from attaching new bundling opportunities - additional add-on services - that are discovered during the course of conducting their compliance assessments.
"During the course of taking a client through the steps of becoming HIPAA compliant, the SecureGRC tool sniffs out revenue-making bundling opportunities like nothing else I've seen," says David Altizer, vice president of SOS Systems based in Memphis, TN, and an eGestalt partner. "We invariably discover multiple areas that need our attention; we find our clients need written policies, they need endpoint security, they need Active Directory, and a host of other things that improves our perceived value and length of engagement."
The solution also generates extensive risk and compliance reports on demand - mandatory documentation and reports used to prove full compliancy with auditors.
"We used feedback from the channel to build the easiest, most cost-effective way to ensure that appropriate controls and safeguards have been implemented to prevent unauthorized access and disclosure of sensitive patient data - all that is at the core of meeting and sustaining compliance," said Anupam Sahai, president, eGestalt. "We have truly demystified the complexity associated with HIPAA/HITECH to the point where absolutely no prior knowledge of these regulations is assumed. This represents a tremendous opportunity especially for service providers who are new to this space, to enter this profitable line of business at virtually no cost."
Says Altizer of SOS Systems, "Version 11 looks like it's going to be a lot easier to deploy, a lot easier to manage, and will let us grow a lot faster. It's a more intuitive user interface, and it's easier for us to manage our clients. Every concern of ours has been addressed. We are looking forward to v11 and already have two deployments scheduled for it."
