LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) - TraceSecurity, a pioneer in cloud-based IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named its TraceCSO information security program solution as a finalist for the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the Risk Management and Tomorrow's Technology Today awards categories. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that help set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.
TraceCSO is the industry's first cloud solution for a holistic and risk-based information security program that delivers comprehensive visibility and accountability for improved risk and compliance profiles across all areas of an organization, including cloud environments. TraceCSO allows organizations of any size, industry or security skill set to evaluate, create, implement and manage a comprehensive risk-based information security program, to protect their organizations from today's top information security risks, including cloud security and "bring your own device" (BYOD) concerns.
"These finalist honors from Info Security Products Guide validate TraceCSO's innovation and real value delivered to customers for securing their cloud and on-premise networks," said Dariel LeBoeuf, TraceSecurity VP of Marketing. "TraceCSO is being recognized for the leading risk-management capabilities it delivers through its vulnerability assessment and information security programs, all tied into an organization's risk and compliance profiles. In addition, by delivering the first cloud-based holistic information security programs that offer centralized visibility and management, TraceCSO makes available today what previously was considered as only a capability of the future."
Unlike current information security program solutions, which simply provide a console and no remediation tools, TraceCSO identifies and prioritizes risk to an organization's information -- including network vulnerabilities -- and identifies, implements and audits security controls. To help organizations stay current with the latest regulatory mandates specific to their industry, TraceCSO leverages a global database of hundreds of authorities and more than 25,000 regulations and citations.
