Stronger Risk Management Software Suite from SAI Global


SAI Global is pleased to announce that Modulo Risk Manager, the market leading IT governance, risk and compliance technology solution purchased last year, has been formally brought into their existing suite of risk management software offerings under the name 'IT Risk Manager'.

IT Risk Manager (referred to in the review article as Modulo) was named SC Magazine's recommended traditional GRC product and was awarded a 5-star rating by cybersecurity specialist Peter Robinson of SC Media. It is flexible, scalable, and affordable, enabling Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) to take an intelligent approach to the daily challenges of managing corporate and information security risk.

"In today’s global marketplace, addressing corporate and information security risks and meeting compliance obligations has become increasingly complex. IT Risk Manager greatly enhances and augments the existing portfolio of risk management software solutions we provide including our GRC software, Compliance 360 and EHS software, Cintellate."

Jan Kruger

Executive Vice President of Risk Solutions, SAI Global

Identified as possibly the most flexible system SC Magazine had observed, IT Risk Manager's strengths included its functionality, scalability, risk focus, connection to outside data sources such as vulnerability assessment tools, price-point and length of experience.

Noting the solution had no observed weaknesses, IT Risk Manager's ability to be rapidly deployed contributed to it being named a 'best practice' IT GRC solution.

SAI Global's IT Risk Manager was also recognised by independent research organisation Gartner as a Challenger in both the IT Risk Management* and IT Vendor Risk Management Magic Quadrants during 2016. Read the report here.**

Manual IT GRC processes leave the digital business vulnerable to failure, inefficiencies and cyber-attacks. IT Risk Manager is an out-of-the-box, cloud-based GRC solution designed for rapid deployment within an organisation; once deployed it enables information security teams to streamline and manage digital risk and compliance across the enterprise and extended vendor network right away.

IT Risk Manager was purchased by SAI Global in August 2016 from Brazilian parent company Modulo Security Solutions. SAI Global assures customers the name change, which formed part of the terms of the sale agreement, will not impact the solution, product inclusions and service previous 'Modulo IT Risk Manager' users enjoyed.

People interested in finding out more about the benefits of using IT Risk Manager to meet compliance obligations and manage their information security risks are recommended to visit SAI Global's website which includes details of relevant specialists in their region.
