Rsam Releases Powerful New Features and Enhanced Interface in Flagship GRC Platform Rsam Version 8

Completely Redesigned User-Interface Delivers Simplified and Enhanced User Experience to Manage and Automate Risk and Compliance Management Processes

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwired - June 06, 2013) -  Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the next evolution of its powerful GRC platform. Version 8 includes major updates, including a new user interface that empowers organizations to more effectively automate and manage GRC processes across the entire enterprise.

Managing and prioritizing risk and compliance is more complex than ever for organizations faced with evolving mandates, shifting risk priorities and a ballooning amount of GRC big data. Rsam GRC centralizes information from disparate sources into an integrated, object-based risk framework to track all controls, incidents and remediation activities.

"We responded to customers and the shifting regulatory landscape, and completely redesigned the interface and added powerful new features that make Rsam easier to manage and to scale to meet the needs of enterprises of all sizes," said Vivek Shivananda, CEO, Rsam. "Rsam version 8 features dozens of innovations that increase usability and help organizations manage their own unique risk, compliance and security needs more quickly, more intuitively and more efficiently, but without the need for coding or costly professional services."

A Monumental Step Forward for Compliance and Security Professionals
Building on the proven technology developed and refined for nearly a decade in highly regulated industries, Rsam's newest platform and modular out-of-the-box solutions remove the complexity of managing GRC processes through a new user interface and navigation features. Improvements include:

  • Enhanced user interface - Completely redesigned interface for all modules incorporates a more intuitive and dynamic workflow and navigation. New Rsam role-based views and navigators present context-driven information, making it much easier for users to navigate to areas of interest.
  •  Improved performance in search, navigation to handle big data - Now, users can view and perform ad-hoc search, grouping, and perform mass actions -- all with a few clicks.
  • New charting and dashboarding tool - Multiple charting options provide business, risk and compliance context of the underlying data. Various charts including Heatmaps can be created using a drag and drop interface.
  • Multi-browser compatibility - Rsam version 8 now supports multiple browsers making is easier for companies who have deployed and use multiple web browsers.

Customers and Independent Testing Validate Rsam's Effectiveness, Innovation and Ease of Use

"The moving target of regulatory demands in health care made intelligent automation a priority as we evaluated GRC solutions," said Karen Bulawa, Information Security Risk Management, Dignity Health. "Rsam delivers on our needs in several important ways. It is a very flexible GRC tool, and it is helping us to minimize risk exposure and decrease our cost of compliance." 

Customers aren't the only ones validating Rsam's technology and unique approach to risk intelligence. Because Rsam is the only object-based risk and compliance technology built on a dynamic framework, customers are freed from the burden of needing massive re-design and consulting services, allowing for faster implementation of changes and ongoing cost savings. Just this week, SC Magazine awarded Rsam a five-star review based on their independent editorial laboratory testing (http://www.scmagazine.com/rsam-grc-v8/review/3906/).

Some excerpts from the SC Magazine review:
"There is a brand new user interface in this version -- clean and easy to follow -- with tabs across the top for the various modules and navigation panes below."

"Getting data into Rsam has been enhanced in this release. The tool's universal connector is data-source agnostic and allows customers to integrate data from other existing tools without waiting for Rsam to establish a formal relationship with that third party product."

"Also, there are numerous out-of-the-box risk management reports, plus a tool for creating custom dashboards. The new dashboards are solid. Also new are capabilities for universal and metrics search that allow for the scheduling of a function to be run and posted to a dashboard."

"Rsam is focused on responding to the needs of our customers and making our platform as intuitive as possible," said Kevin Day, CTO, Rsam. "We've dedicated the last 18 months to provide our customers with a completely redesigned user interface that matches the power of the platform. Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we believe that version 8 reflects our commitment to excellence and ongoing innovation."
